TLC is making a hologram of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes

You know what must suck? Being one of the scientists who worked for decades to perfect hologram technology. Just imagine spending tons of money on college, spending years in college sweating over textbooks and complex equations and never having sex with anyone ever. And then you perfect it, and your boss is all like “Awesome, we’re going to use this to make it look like Tupac Shakur is rapping at Coachella so that stoned hipsters will crap their pants!” and then you presumably go home and end it all with a rope and a wobbly stool. All this to say that TLC is jumping on the “bringing back dead rappers” bit by going on tour with a hologram of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes. Pitchfork reports:

TMZ reports that TLC will tour in 2012, with members Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas performing with a film projection of the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who died in a car accident ten years ago. The concept may recall Coachella’s recent Tupac hologram, but it’s exactly what TLC’s surviving members did at their last performance in 2003. According to TMZ, five major cities have already been confirmed.

Aside from the questionable moral implications of using images of dead people to make money for yourself because they can’t legally fight you when they’re not alive to do anything, are you kidding me? How many up-and-coming living rappers out there would kill to perform at Coachella, only to look up and see a hologram of someone who died back in the nineties? That’s gotta suck is all I’m saying.
