Rumors are circulating that Justin Timberlake is going to present a hologram of the late, great Prince during his Super Bowl halftime show today.
Prince had previously come out against hologram performances, in a 1998 interview with Guitar World, saying “If I was meant to jam with Duke Ellington, we would have lived in the same age. That whole virtual reality thing… it really is demonic.”
The news, which originally came from gossip site TMZ has since been denied by Prince’s longtime collaborator Sheila E. on Twitter.
While no one from Justin Timberlake’s camp has made a comment on the rumors, Prince fans took to social media to express their thoughts on the potential move.
Fans used images of the icon himself to show their disapproval of the plan
Some even went as far as to say that they hope Prince will haunt Justin Timberlake from the grave.
Others suggested that Prince never really liked Justin Timberlake in the first place.
