(Newser) Tupac paved the way, and now Amy Winehouse may follow. British tabloid the Sun reports that the late Winehouse may go on a world tour as a 3D hologram. "The idea is in its early stages, but it’s hoped that Amy’s dad Mitch will maybe join her and do the introductions," says a source in the story. Billionaire Alki David is behind the plan, which would use the same technology that put Tupac Shakur on the stage at the Coachella Music Festival in 2012. That show so impressed David that he bought the rights to the technology. In fact, his film and hologram companies sued Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts this week for patent infringement over a hologram of Michael Jackson used in Vegas, reports the Hollywood Reporter.

It saddens me how in our world today some of you disgusting human beings if human is truly what you are, think it is o.k. to talk so low about a woman who was not only a phenomenal talent but also a good human being. Not all of us are perfect in this world , we all make mistakes and Amy paid dearly for hers with her life. Once we are gone it is highly disrespectful to speak ill of the dead . Shame on all of you who have in these comments . Alcoholism and substance abuse is a disease , so instead of throwing stones pick up a book an educate yourself. Let's hope one day when you are all gone despite your mistakes here in the physical world that know one is speaking ill of you .

That, is the only way, you could get her to show up sober.
