As kicks in the teeth go, this one’s pretty tough. Lily Allen’s manager, Todd Interland of Twenty-First Artists, told the audience at the MIDEM Manager Summit yesterday that MySpace “is going through a bit of a crisis really: It seems to have lost its potency”. An unsurprising statement perhaps, but given MySpace’s role in Allen’s rise to fame, a telling one. In fact, four managers were on-stage for the panel session in which Interland made the comments, and when asked which social media services are providing the best fan responses for their artists, none chose MySpace, but three chose Facebook. MySpace CEO Owen Van Natta clearly has more work to do. Source: SandboxFM
