We can hear Prince yell from heaven with disgust!
Sunday night is the Super Bowl and Justin Timberlake will be headlining the Halftime Show.
Trying to outdo anybody before him, the “Sexy Back” singer is rumored to have a hologram of Prince on stage with him. With the report, surfacing comes displeasure from Prince fans.
Let’s bring it back for those who forgot how the rift between JT and Prince started. When JT stroke gold with his “Sexy Back” hit in 2016, Prince reportedly threw shade by saying, “For whoever is claiming they are bringing sexy back, sexy never left!”
Timberlake decided to throw shade back a year later on the track Timberland’s “Give It To Me” featuring Nelly Furtado by saying…
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
Cute but JT wasn’t done. Later that year at the Golden Globes, the former boy band mate took another shot at Prince at his expense when he won for his song “Song of the Heart” for Happy Feet.
If that is how he felt when Prince was alive and now that he is gone, trying to use his likeness is pretty shady. Seems Prince Estate agrees and address the hologram drama on Twitter saying they didn’t authorize the NFL to use his image.
