Nearly 50 years after her tragic death, Marilyn Monroe is set to make a comeback. The perpetually 36 year-old sex symbol will be incarnated via hologram—similarly to Elvis and Tupac Shakur—to appear in the “Virtual Marilyn Live - A Musical Celebration of the Birth of the Pop Icon” concert.
A date and venue for the ambitious show have yet to be announced, but Digicon Media has promised to unveil the project before the end of the year.
Marilyn’s legacy still holds strong in Hollywood, with Lady Gaga posing in the iconic curls and red lipstick to commemorate the starlet’s birthday.
Had she not died of a drug overdose, Monroe would have been 86 today.
Fifth graders from Staten Island’s now infamous PS 22 chorus covered Nicki Minaj’s “Marilyn Monroe” to mark the occasion. Personally, we think a better tribute would have been “I Wanna Be Loved By You” from “Some Like It Hot.”
J-Connection: Marilyn Monroe converted to Judaism in 1956 before marrying playwright Arthur Miller in a small ceremony kept secret from the press. The pair divorced in 1961, and Monroe died just one year later.
