As you know, Justin Timberlake performed at the Pepsi Halftime Show for Super Bowl LII and got very mixed reviews.
A lot of the critics didn’t take a liking to his “duet” with the late Prince, as he was projected on a large tapestry of sorts as Timberlake played the piano, Prince’s sister thought otherwise.

According to Complex, Tyka Nelson, Prince’s sister, said that she was impressed with the performance and thinks that her brother would not have been mad at the tribute.
All this commotion is stemming from when Prince collaborator, Shelia E., confirmed that Prince once told her, “don’t ever let anyone do a hologram of me.”
No matter how you think Prince would have taken it, his own sister said that the legendary performer wouldn’t have disliked it. Plus, it’s not like JT did it in spite what so ever, he did it to pay tribute and did it well if you ask me.
