Starting today, the Black Eyes Peas will be the first band to take over the newly redesigned Myspace website as part of the “Hijacks” program. The new program allows talent to take control of the social networking site for three days where they reveal how they would program the site if they were in charge, premiere exclusive content, and provide interesting opportunities to users.

“We’re psyched to be the first group to take over the new Myspace,” will.i.am said. “As artists we’re always looking for new ways to reach our fans all over the world and this ‘hijack’ is allowing us to use our imagination, bringing our creative vision from our new album to the world of Myspace.”
