Prince Will Not Be Performing at the Super Bowl as a Hologram

RANKED! Every Super Bowl halftime show, from Michael Jackson to Lady Gaga A Not-Too-Dangerous Drinking Game For The Super Bowl Halftime Show

The highlight was the cover of Prince's "I Would Die 4 U", which Timberlake sang with a large video projection of Prince performing the song simultaneously. Whose image would performing with Timberlake help, after all?

While the performance was attractive, multiple Prince fans were not happy that Timberlake, 37, made a decision to honor the eight-time Grammy victor with a hologram - something that the legendary singer spoke out about in 1998, revealing he did not want. Timberlake himself said at least a small bit of "Can't stop the feeling" will likely find its way into the performance, but the rest remains solidly under wraps.

At halftime, the score stood at 22 - 12 with the Philadelphia Eagles in the lead over the New England Patriots. As Billboard reported, CBS asked Jackson to release a written apology taking "full blame" for the stunt and she was blacklisted from the Grammy's the next week (though Timberlake was allowed to attend).

His performance comes 14 years after the controversial halftime show with Jackson, in which he ripped off a portion of her costume, that partly revealed her breast. They later called it a "wardrobe malfunction". Both stars apologized, but Jackson bore the brunt of the fallout - many radio stations stopped playing her music, and her career suffered for years.

A 4400-year-old Tomb Was Just Discovered In Egypt
Minister Anani said he was hopeful of further discoveries at the site, which is located about 20km (12 miles) south of Cairo. He said: 'This is a very promising area. "We have removed between 250-300 cubic meters of layers of earth to find the tomb".


Longtime Prince collaborator Sheila E. has assured fans that he will not appear in hologram form as part of Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl halftime show performance in Minneapolis tonight.

But from his most recent press conference, it looks like some fans will be in for quite a disappointment. Some argued that Jackson, as a black woman, fell victim to a racist and sexist double standard and received harsher treatment than Timberlake, as a white man, did, and they said he benefited from "white male privilege".

"I don't know that a lot of people know that", he said. "Don't hate on me just because you didn't come up with it".
