The family of the late singer Selena have announced their plans to bring the musician back to life through the use of a new hologram-like technology. They also plan to release new music and have the virtual Selena go on tour in 2018. I will go to see her, and I will buy so much merch.
The project is being called "Selena the One."
"By no means is this something that's creepy or weird," her sister, Suzette Quintanilla, told Billboard. "We think it's something amazing. A lot of the new fans that did not get to experience what Selena was about hopefully will be able to get a sense of her with this new technology that's going to be coming out."
"People don't realize how fast technology is moving," she told Billboard. "This is something that we're building for another two to three years, so when 2018 comes around they'll be like, 'Oh, OK, we get it.' "
What's your favorite Selena song? Mine's Bidi Bidi Bom Bom. It's about a guy that she likes so much that every time she sees him her heart goes bidi bidi bom bom. Man, I want my heart to go bidi bidi bom bom. I'm pretty sure the closest I've ever felt to that feeling is a panic attack.
Thanks to Ed, who wants to be a groupie.
