Celebrity Best Friends
Published: June 8, 2012
Celebrity Best Friends, Elvis Presley is alive. He’s standing next to Tupac Shakur and Marilyn Monroe, waiting to take the stage thanks to the wonder of technology. It’s really just smoke and mirrors – literally.
In April, a hologram of the late Shakur joined his friends, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, onstage at Coachella. The crowd was stunned at how real the performance seemed, despite Shakur having met his demise in 1996 after being gunned down in Las Vegas by unknown assailants. As the conjured Shakur performed, it seemed almost a sign that the End of Days was upon us. At the very least it seemed to confirm every gangster conspiracy theorist’s sneaking suspicion that Shakur is still alive.
Concert attendees discovered later Shakur had been brought back as a hologram by tech company AV Concepts. While conspiracy theorists may be clinging to their ideas, the rest of the public was amazed at the image’s authenticity. For the briefest of moments, Tupac lived again.
Last week, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that company Digicon Media is planning to bring back iconic blonde Monroe in “Virtual Marilyn Live – A Musical Celebration of the Birth of the Pop Icon.”
While fans of Monroe may want to send love letters to Digicon Media and AV Concepts, there are a few people who may not be excited about the late bombshell’s return. Katherine McPhee and Megan Hilty may be among the latter. Why watch their series, Smash, revolving around the making of a Broadway musical about Monroe when you can actually watch the real deal perform “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”?
The same goes for impersonators. Boy, if you think it’s bad that thousands of teachers will be on unemployment come July, just wait until Monroe, Presley and Michael Jackson impersonators get in line. (Patch)
