BASE Hologram

Whitney Houston's hologram is going out on a 27-date world tour. The tour dates have been announced.

Whitney's hologram, a three-dimensional illumination of her image, is set to perform in a money grab concert tour called "An Evening With Whitney".

Of course the person behind the tour is Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law, who claims the show will be an interactive experience that will allow ticket holders to see Whitney live for the first time since her untimely death in 2012 at age 48.

Houston released a statement responding to the criticism:

"Whitney is not with us, but her music will live with us forever. We know we made the right decision partnering with BASE because they understand how important it is to produce a phenomenal hologram. They also know that engaging her fans with an authentic Whitney experience would resonate worldwide because of the iconic status that she created over three decades. Her fans deserve nothing less because she gave nothing less than her best."

Other hologram tours featuring famous dead people have failed to live up to the hype. Mainly because a hologram cannot be made to look real regardless of how the light is angled. You can literally see through the image, which can be unsettling to some people.

The company producing the tour - BASE Hologram - released a schedule that kicks off in Mexico before touring Europe, where people are less skeptical of gimmicks.

No North American tour has been announced.

Question: Do you plan to purchase a ticket to Whitney's hologram tour?

Washed up rapper Tyga will not be touring Brazil in the near future. According to reports, Tyga cancelled his Brazilian tour because his teenage lover Kylie Jenner told him to.

Meagan Goode and Devon Franklin on Wendy Williams

Anointed couple Meagan Good and Devon Franklin, SVP of Columbia Tristar Pictures, are all smiles nearly 2 years after tying the knot. The couple began dating in 2011 and wisely waited until June 2012 to get married. Most couples whose marriages quickly end in divorce make the mistake of rushing down the aisle while they are still under the influence of Dopamine, the powerful pleasure chemical in the brain. It's almost impossible to determine if a man or woman is right for you while you're still under the influence.

Drake and Rihanna Are Off The Market

According to my very well-connected rock solid source, Rihanna and Drake are NOT dating. Ignore the flurry of rumors littering the blogosphere about these two friends.

Yes, Rihanna attended a couple of Drake's concerts, and on Thursday they partied at Houston's V-Live strip club. But be clear that there is no romantic interest. Remember where you read this first.

    Billboard Magazine Rips Beyonce

    They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery -- except when Beyonce brazenly steals from others.

    When Beyonce's career is over in a couple of years, the untalented singer will only be remembered for ripping off the creative works of others. Billboard magazine, which usually writes puff pieces in servile deference to Beyonce, wrote a particularly scathing op-ed piece about Beyonce's shameless thievery today.

    "Any artist, including Beyoncé, can wear whatever another artist wore, but that multiplicity gets suspicious and easily pegged as stealing," Billboard writes.
