The article on the Star Tribune says there was a hologram planned and someone with the NFL confirmed it.If that's true,sounds like it was cancelled due to the backlash.

And more specfically:

"On Saturday, an NFL source confirmed to the Star Tribune that Prince indeed will be a big part of the halftime show — appearing as a hologram."

Let's be logical, though (not that you're not): This is not going to be another MJ or Tupac projection-on-glass sort of thing.

I would think it's going to be a video or some sort of projection on a larger screen to pay tribute to the man in his hometown. Even the moving screens like Madonna had for "4 Minutes" on the Sticky n' Sweet Tour would be reasonable.

I wouldn't be surprised (or mad) if JT sang part of a Prince song, or incorporated (mashed up) a Prince song into something of his own.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Well, we have TMZ to thank for starting this rumor.

.

Sheila said no hologram and PRN family said no hologram. I have much love and respect for Sheila for honoring Prince's wishes.

Still makes me wonder though. I think there may have been plans for a hologram but sentiment changed that. Jon Bream is pretty reliable and has been writing about Prince for ages. If he claims he was told by an NFL source that a hologram was used during the Friday rehearsal, and that there was going to be a Prince hologram included in the show, I can't help but feel conflicted as to who or what to think or believe. Just my own opinion, but a few of the sources of denials are less than reliable, historically speaking, also it was my understanding that the family doesn't have a say in if something like this happens or not?

.

All of this hubbub is generating a lot of talk about the halftime show and about Justin so, like others have said, mission accomplished there.

I agree. I think that'd be a good and appropriate way to acknowledge and pay tribute to Prince in this situation.

Yea, I have a hunch that they were planning some type of Hologram, but because of all the backlash, they put the kibosh on it.

Exactly.

Pretty much everything seems to be a calculated stunt these days but if the stunt itself doesn't pan out for whatever reason(s), they can still benefit by harnessing the outrage/buzz/controversy that's been created and they can get tons of publicity that way.

The lyrics were about Prince! What planet are you on? eek

Confirmed by who? All I see on Google is they were rumored to be about Prince. When did Timberlake or Timbaland confirm it?

.

The lyrics reference Timberlake’s 2006 single “SexyBack,“ which topped the charts despite initially receiving negative marks from critics. However, it’s also a reference to Prince, who poked fun at “SexyBack” during a performance at a post-Emmy Awards party in 2006. Prince reportedly said, “For whoever is claiming they are bringing sexy back, sexy never left!"

.

The following January 2007, Timberlake presented the award for Best Original Song at the Golden Globes. Prince won the award for “Song of the Heart" from the animated film Happy Feet, but didn’t make it to the ceremony because he was reportedly stuck in traffic. When Timberlake accepted the award on his behalf, he mocked Prince’s 5'2 height.

.

Prince fans angrily pointed out on Twitter that Timberlake previously dissed Prince on Timbaland’s 2007 track “Give It To Me,” which also featured Nelly Furtado. On the song, JT sang:

We missed you on the charts last week
Damn, that’s right you wasn’t there
Now if se-sexy never left, then why is everybody on my shi-i-it?
Don’t hate on me just because you didn’t come up with it

The lyrics are unquestionably about Prince. It would be kind of funny if he performed that song at the Superbowl just to see what the reaction would be.

At this point I do not even want to see or hear JT at all- anywhere. I lost so much for him over the years and I am tired of giving him benefit of the doubt.

I am not dissing his talent - I just am not feeling him at all

A projection on a curtain is hardly a hologram. If you ask me it was very tasteful.
