There’s A Rumor That The Super Bowl Half-Time Show Will Feature A Prince Hologram

With the Super Bowl in Minneapolis tomorrow, it’s almost inevitable that Justin Timberlake will have a few nods to Prince in his half-time show. Still, the Internet isn’t at all convinced that should come in the form of a hologram.

TMZ reported Saturday (February 3) that while Janet Jackson and ‘NSYNC are not slated to perform, Timberlake is planning to perform with a Prince hologram in honor of the late star’s hometown.

Some people think the idea is amazing — but many on Twitter are less enthused, arguing that Prince would have had no urge to perform with Timberlake were he alive and that bringing him back as a hologram dishonors his memory.

Stop. Just … stop.

lol we already know how Prince felt about the subject:

Prince in 1998: “That whole virtual reality thing… it really is demonic. And I am not a demon”

Prince + Hologram = The sounds of doves crying

If this Prince-as-a-hologram story is real, all I want to see him do is come out, take a knee, and slowly vanish back into the ether.

Disrespectful ass Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl Halftime Show to feature a hologram of Prince- Even though Prince didn't like him, and Prince did an interview with Guitar World magazine in 1998 calling this type of act "demonic".

Prince told me don’t ever let anyone do a hologram of me. Not cool if this happens!
