Tupac Shakur hologram to tour?; Pippa Middleton and the pre-gun-episode party

A morning mix of entertainment headlines...

The hologram of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur — conjured to perform alongside Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg during a Sunday night set at Coachella — might be going on tour. The Wall Street Journal reports that reps for both Dre and Snoop Dogg are in the process of planning a tour that would involve the almost-but-not-really reincarnated Tupac, whose digital likeness was generated by Digital Domain Media Group, the same company that youth-ified and aged Brad Pitt for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” If this actually succeeds, can we assume that a Nirvana reunion featuring an Obi-Wan version of Kurt Cobain is not far behind?

(Warning: Video of the Coachella performance contains some NSFW language.)

Pippa Middleton, most recently seen in photos with a friend pointing what is reportedly a fake gun at photographers, apparently attended a saucy party before the gun incident occurred. In the words of The Sun, Middleton “let her hair down at the raunchy costume bash,” which was hosted by fashion man Arthur de Soultrait, also in the car during the gun brandishing episode. The soiree featured (again, words of The Sun) “dwarves,” “strippers" and “kinky masks.” Good to know, although what’s of far greater concern is the fact that everyne involved in the gun incident could face seven years in jail if that semi-automatic was real, or two years if it was fake.

The “Jersey Shore” house has been vandalized! Apparently the Seaside Heights beach spot/home of the duck phone is being repeatedly tagged with graffiti, so much so that its owner has to repaint it once a week; roof shingles also have been stolen. Security is being increased to catch those who attempt to destroy the den of Snooki. It’s hard to believe. I mean, where would the fans of “Jersey Shore” learn such bad behavior? (TMZ)

After a three-month hiatus, Demi Moore has returned to Twitter. (@mrskutcher)

Is Pete Campbell of “Mad Men” going to die? The Internet seems to so, and a GQ.com interview with actor Vincent Kartheiser isn’t doing much to refute that theory. “I hope you don’t get too sad,” he tells writer Gwynne Watkins at the end of their conversation, “no matter what happens.” Oh, man. Now I feel even worse about feeling so good when Lane popped him in the face on Sunday night. (GQ)

Taraji P. Henson said in a recent Collider interview that she would love to play Diana Ross, a superhero or Whitney Houston. But of the Houston role, she says “I just think it’s too soon.” After some time passes, this actually sounds like a good idea, doesn’t it? (Collider)

Julianne Moore is reportedly in talks to play the mother of Carrie, to be portrayed by Chloe Moretz , in the upcoming remake of the horror film. She has not officially been cast, though, and others — including Jodie Foster — might still be in the mix. (Vulture)

In case you didn’t see this photo of Kelsey Grammer getting a hip tattoo of his wife’s name as it made its way around the Internet yesterday, here’s the image. It will remain in your brain for a long, long time. (Best Week Ever)
