Perez Reviews: Holler If Ya Hear Me, The Tupac Musical

What is the takeaway from Holler If Ya Hear Me, the new Tupac Shakur musical, now playing on Broadway???

We're not sure what the message of the show is - and that's not a good thing!

What we do know is that it's bleak, depressing and disappointing on so many levels.

A risky move, the creators and producers of the show decided to NOT tell the story of Tupac. Instead they told a story about gun violence and drugs that was not as effective or powerful as the Shakur songs used throughout the show.

Beautiful is beautiful because it's a real story about real emotions and experiences that we can all relate to.

Same with Motown.

Holler If Ya Hear Me, unfortunately, is trying to be a little too ambitious and feels extremely undercooked.

We didn't need a "traditional" musical about Tupac. Something bolder and braver would have been quite brilliant. An exploration on politics, race relations or a myriad of other issues (many or one) would have been much more effective.

The traditional musical NOT about Shakur that is Holler If Ya Hear Me is lacking the passion and vibrancy that Tupac had.

There is very little dancing, which shocked us.

And there's very little of everything. The set is lacking and the whole production seems like it was done on a budget.

Multimedia, video, illustrations - all that could have added so much more!

This show would have worked better in a small off-Broadway theater downtown… after a lot more workshopping and revisions!

We missed the spunk. We missed the light.

You can miss Holler If Ya Hear Me!

Justin Bieber Wants To Be The New Tupac - And Here's The PROOF!

justin bieber rapper tupac cannes

Mystery solved! We now know why Justin Bieber is at the Cannes Film Festival 2014!

The teen-idol-turned-wannabe-rapper is trying to snatch the late Tupac's rapping throne!!!

Oh yeah! It happened!

Just after taking off his shirt to mingle with the ladies (DUH) at Gotha Club, Justin jumped on stage with party pal Rick Ross to deliver some classic Tupac rhymes.

More specifically, the Biebz took over Rick's set to throw down his own rendition of Dear Mama.

Should we call him Bizzle from now on??! LOLz!

No doubt Tupac is turning over in his grave. Can't JB just let him rest in peace???!

Ch-ch-check out the cringe-worthy moment (below)!!

Unfortunately for all of humankind, Amy Winehouse will not be projected anytime soon, nor walk among us again in three dimensions (kinda).

Apparently, there was a recent tabloid report that a 3D hologram of Amy was in the works that would be accompanied with a full orchestra.

Her dad, Mitch Winehouse, took to Twitter to dispel those rumors:

Tupac To Be Honored With Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame!

2pac

Tupac Shakur may have been resting in peace for the past 17 years, but that doesn’t mean his legacy hasn’t been hard at work!

Statues have been erected in his honor, a hologram of him performed at Coachella, his mother has a foundation named after him, there are multiple wax figures that look eerily like him — the list goes on and on!

And now, the Walk of Fame Committee has decided to honor 2pac’s legend with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! This will make Tupac the fourth rapper to receive a star.

Other celebs who will be given the 2014 star treatment are: Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Jessica Lange, and Matthew McConaughey, amongst other household names.

Check out some pics of the 2014 Hollywood Walk Of Fame recipients below!

Chris Brown Compares Himself To Tupac, Post Twitter Rant?!

Chris Brown Twitter Rant Instagram Tupac

Run! Quick! See! What do we have here now???

Chris Brown may no longer be on Twitter, but that doesn’t mean he’s done with social media altogether!

Following his Twit-feud with Jenny Johnson, Breezy deleted his Twitter account and has since recently posted some pics on Instagram!

Whether it was “verbal rape” as The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck claims or not, Chris seems to have found comfort in… Tupac and zombies?!

Check out one of the pics Brown sent out (above)!

So where does Pac fit into all of this mess?

Well, Breezy also tweeted the pic (below) of the late rapper, captioning:

“That awkward moment when the only person u can relate to in the world is dead.”

Okay then… as for the creepy zombies, also Instagrammed yesterday?

They’re supposedly new designs for his clothing line, Black Pyramid!

At least now he’s being somewhat constructive with his time???
