Justin Timberlake Nixed Prince Hologram at Last Minute

Page Six is reporting that Justin Timberlake planned to perform with a hologram version of Prince during his Super Bowl 52 halftime show–but changed plans at the last second. “He was 100 percent ready to use the hologram but nixed it due to backlash from social media and Prince fans,” an insider reveals. “That’s why he had that sheet up like in your mama’s backyard.” The news comes after Prince’s longtime collaborator Sheila E. told Entertainment Tonight that she advised Timberlake to not use a hologram. “The hologram was weird, and Prince did tell me [to] make sure nobody ever does a hologram [of him],” she said. “He thought it was very demonic and that’s his spiritual beliefs.” A Timberlake source, however, claims the singer was never going to use a hologram. “There’s no way Justin would ever disrespect Prince’s legacy,” they add. “He didn’t change his performance.”
