Dionne Warwick had quite a mouthful to say about the proposal of having a Whitney Houston Hologram tour, going so far as to call it "stupid."

Last Thursday, Dionne Warwick attended the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America's 1st Annual Second Chance Digital Impact Recipient Awards in Washington D.C. During the event, she was asked what she thought of the news that a hologram of her late cousin is currently being developed before going on tour.

Whitney's cousin revealed that she had no idea what that is, and the plans are surprising to her.

"I haven't a clue as to what that is. It's surprising to me. I don't know what it is. I think it's stupid, but whatever it is that's what it is."

Keeping Whitney Alive

Whitney Houston's estate revealed their plans of launching new projects focused on Whitney, including a hologram that they planned to bring on tour. Seven years after her death, her estate is looking for more ways to expand her legacy, including a new marketing deal with Primary Wave Music Publishing.

Houston's sister-in-law and former manager Pat Houston shared that a hologram is currently being created that would perform Whitney's best hits. Aside from this, they are also looking into making an album with unreleased tracks, and even a Broadway musical.

While this might seem like a good idea for the estate, other people don't like the idea very much.

Unforeseen Reactions

Pat Houston may believe that signing a new marketing deal would be beneficial for them, but their main consumers, the fans, are not liking the idea and would rather have Whitney rest in peace.

Her fans on Instagram added that these new packages are greedy, and are self-serving rather than actually doing anything to preserve Whitney's legacy.
