A hologram of late Tupac Shakur hit the stage, during Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg’s Coachella set. In an innovative performance moment Pac performed “Hail Mary” and “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted”. I’m sure those who got the chance to see this live it was like a trip to Disney. I’m grateful for the video. I hope somebody does a hologram of Biggie or Aaliyah next!
Who would you like to see a hologram of?

On Halloween, Kim K. announced that she would be splitting from soon to be ex-husband, Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage. The Kardashian-Humphries wedding gained attention world-wide and a large list of brands wanted in on the “storybook” day.
High-end designer, Vera Wang designed three beautiful dress for Kim’s big day. In September, Wang revealed that she would add two dresses to her White by Vera Wang Collection for David’s Bridal that were inspired by Kim’s one-of-a-kind dresses. Wang told E! News she wanted to create a more affordable version of the tulle ball gown worn during the ceremony as well as the ruffled mermaid dress she wore at the reception. Both replica’s are slated to hit David Bridal’s stores in February for $1,500 each.

Despite the failed marriage, negative press and the mixed sales projections, the executive VP of David’s Bridal Brian Beitler said, “The entire White by Vera Wang Spring 2012 collection will be available exclusively at David’s Bridal stores next season.”
The media is calling the dresses “cursed”. I don’t care what the media says. I’ve watched enough Say Yes To The Dress episodes to know that a beautiful wedding dress will sale…Kim K. or no Kim K.! I predict the Spring 2012 Collection will be fine.
