Deceased Stars and What They Might Look Like Today
From time to time, when we think of deceased stars, we wonder what they might look like today. An artist answers that question!
Sometimes we think about celebrities and stars who died too soon and wonder what they would look like today if they were still alive. Of course, in many cases, we can't really imagine this, which is why Instagram account user hidreley set out to finally give us an answer to this question. Here's what deceased stars might look like today if they were still alive.
#1 Princess Diana
On August 31, 1997, Princess Diana - often referred to as "Lady Di" in popular parlance - died in a car accident in Paris. After her divorce from Prince Charles, she was driving in the French capital with her new boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed when the accident occurred. She died at the age of 36. Her death caused a wave of consternation, so much so that many sometimes wonder what Lady Diana would look like today.
But for the next star in the 27 Club, we have probably already wondered what the singer would look like today...
#2 Amy Winehouse
The singer was not only known for her characteristic beehive hairstyle, but also for her scandals and lifestyle - to say the least - unhealthy. After dying of alcohol poisoning, the artist became part of the mythical 27 club, which includes many famous singers who also died at 27. In fact, this is how Amy Winehouse, born in 1983, presents herself today.
The following musician has also left a great void in many fans
The singer's name was Prince Rogers Nelson. But Prince was not only famous as a singer, but also as a songwriter. The news of his death shocked many fans around the world. The artist, who died in 1958, died in 2016 at the age of 57. Here is what he would look like if he were still alive today.
What would the pop icon look like today on the next page, that's an interesting question for many people!
#4 Marylin Monroe
Born on June 1, 1926, Marilyn Monroe would be well into her 90s if she were still alive today. The Hollywood beauty, who became a global star in the 1950s and remains one of the biggest names in pop culture, would have kept herself well preserved, right? In fact, the pop icon passed away in 1962 at the age of 36.
But for the next global star, many wonder what she would look like today if she were still alive...
#5 Michael Jackson
He is considered the "king of pop". This is not surprising, because he is considered the best artist of all time. Even as a child, he had many musical successes with the "Jackson Five". His solo career was incredibly successful and he was able to achieve one worldwide success after another. On June 25, 2009, he was found dead in his Los Angeles villa. The consternation over the death of the world star was enormous around the world and, regarding Michael Jackson in particular, many would wonder what he would look like today, given that he had undergone numerous cosmetic surgeries during his life and at the end of his life, his appearance was very different from what he looked like as a child.
#6 John Lennon
John Lennon is one of the most famous musicians of all time. On December 8, 1980, John Lennon was murdered in New York City. The former Beatles musician and co-founder of the band was only 40 years old. Today, he would therefore already be over 80 years old and would probably look like this today.
#7 Elvis Presley
He is considered the "King of Rock'n'Roll". The death of Elvis Presley in 1977 was a shock for his fans. The musician, who had countless successes, was only 42 years old. Today, Elvis Presley would be almost 90 years old and would look like this.
The rapper died in 1996, at the age of only 25. However, he had already known an incredible success in the music world. Today, 2Pac or Tupac Shakur would be more than 50 years old and would have changed a lot.
#9 Freddie Mercury
The “Queen” singer sadly passed away before his 50th birthday. He was an absolute icon and, with the other bandmates, redefined music. In case you were curious what the fashion icon might have looked like today, here's the answer!
#10 Natasha Richardson
The British Broadway actress is known for her roles in films such as “The Handmaid's Tale”, “Maid in Manhattan” and “The Wildest Dream”, her final movie. While taking a beginner's skiing class in Canada, Richardson sustained an injury to her head which ended up being fatal. She initially denied treatment, but when she experienced a strong headache, she was flown to Lennox Hill Hospital in New York where she tragically passed away two days later.
@hildreley shows us what the beloved actress could have looked like today.
#11 Patrick Swayze
Dancer and actor Patrick Swayze was born on 18 August 1952 in Houston, Texas, and was best known for his role as Johnny in "Dirty Dancing". He danced his way into the hearts of the audience alongside Jennifer Grey, but it was not until later that it became known that their relationship behind the cameras was anything but harmonious.
Fans miss him sorely. The new remake of the movie is sure to bring back many old memories for his former acting colleagues. On 14 September 2009, he lost his battle against pancreatic cancer. Today he would be 70.
Patrick Swayze is not the only celebrity who lost his battle with cancer:
#12 David Bowie
He is one of the most successful singers, producers and musicians of all time: David Bowie was born David Robert Jones in London on January 8, 1947 and in his 50-year career he sold over 140 million records. Just two days after his 69th birthday, on January 10, 2016, he lost his battle with cancer. The Instagram artist reinterpreted one of his well-known pictures, as he is one of the absolute music icons of the 80s.
The next singer was also an exceptional musical talent:
#13 Whitney Houston
Whitney Elizabeth Houston was born on August 9, 1963 in Newark, New Jersey. She made her mark on the R&B and soul scene in the 80s and 90s with songs like "I Will Always Love You" and "Greatest Love Of All." The singer also celebrated a huge success with her role in the movie "Bodyguard" in 1992. She was found lifeless in a bathtub at her Beverly Hills estate by her assistant on February 11, 2012. Today she would be 59 years old.
