Vevo Denies Myspace Deal

Poor Myspace. First everyone abonded it for the cool, new guy on the block Facebook. Then it started losing money by the handful. Now, as News Corp. practically begs someone to take it, the one company that seemed to match up with Myspace perfectly – Vevo.com – has publicly denied any interest in the website.

PaidContent has an interview with Vevo’s CEO Rio Caraeff, and one of the first things he mentions is the Myspace rumors:

I’ve seen that reported. Our strategy is to focus on growing organically, building a global brand. We’re not in conversations to make that [MySpace deal] happen – it’s not something that there’s any substance to.

Keep your head up Myspace. Someone will love you again, we’re sure of it.
