Japanese Hologram Pop Star Hatsune Miku Coming To Chicago

Yes you read that right, hologram/avatar pop star and my first reaction when this hit my inbox was WhatInTheEntireFudge?! but then also, how cool.  Avatar Hatsune Miku is coming to Chicago following a string of sold out shows.  So who/what is Hatsune Miku? Well the “16 year old” blue eye, pig tails wearing pop star already won over the anime/culture nerds, Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci has gushed over her saying “She’s so cool,” and she’s made her first Vogue appearance in their special 2016 “ManusxMachina” Met Gala issue which shows her meeting with Riccardo at the fashion house’s Paris studio for a couture-gown fitting (say wuuut?!)
