i hope the kind folks on the internet keep dragging justin timberlake.
not even for his horrid performance at the superbowl,
but his questionable character.
page six just released some alleged info about the prince hologram.
the one that could have been a “maybe”….
Justin Timberlake was “100 percent ready to use the hologram” for his Prince tribute during his Super Bowl halftime show performance on Sunday, sources say — but backed out at the last minute.
“He was 100 percent ready to use the hologram but nixed it due to backlash from social media and Prince fans. That’s why he had that sheet up like in your mama’s backyard,” sniped one insider.
Prince’s longtime pal Sheila E. had tweeted that Timberlake was not going to use a hologram after they spoke on Saturday. “Family, I spoke w/Justin 2nite and he shared heartfelt words of respect for Prince & the Purple fans . . . There is no hologram.”
But in an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” she also hinted that she had nixed the hologram idea personally. “I just said no. I just felt that it was too soon,” she told ET. “The hologram was weird, and Prince did tell me [to] make sure nobody ever does a hologram [of him] . . . He thought it was very demonic and that’s his spiritual beliefs.”
Prince fans were also upset about Timberlake hosting his “Man of the Woods” album listening party at the late icon’s Paisley Park and allowing alcohol to be served, but the source told us he had previously gotten the Prince estate’s blessing.
Timberlake’s rep didn’t comment.
the old “leak our own tea and see how the public reacts” trick.
you’ll be surprised many celebs do that.
“sources” are usually someone on their team.
it’s one of the oldest tricks in the pr book.
if it trends,
pr and the audience create the narrative.
i have no doubt justin was going against the grain tho.
that’s pretty much who he is.
i shouldn’t be shocked.
a pet peeve of mine tho.
when folks die and those who were their closest “forget”.
prince’s estate should know better.
sheila e should know better.
like they should know how prince was.
i love how everyone forgets justin allegedly dissed prince.
his performance ended up sucking and showed how basic he is.
lowkey: i guess this is the importance in having a will in place.
