Earlier reports claimed that the social-networking website, , is planning to host its own “coming-out party” in order to show off the initial plans and new visions for the site. Pop star, — being the website’s investor, is expected to be a part of the said event.

Unfortunately, new owners – and Justin – announced that they are scrapping the plans for the party because MySpace’s popularity and visitor traffic is continuing to drop.

“Plans for transforming the site into a hot spot for entertainment have been more ‘incremental’ than anticipated,” a source reported to Journal. Also, according to ComScore, the social network has only invited 33.1 million unique U.S. visitors last month, down to 44% from a year earlier.

MySpace now plans to re-launch the “coming-out party” during the ’s “” conference, which will be held in New York sometime next month.
