AI “Resurrects” Passed-Away Celebrities By Portraying Their Fictional Older Images

Many celebrities, unfortunately, unexpectedly passed away long before they reached old age. If you are their fans, we understand that sometimes, you really miss them and wish they could have been alive so you could continue to love and support them. Even though those who were gone for good can’t be brought back to life, you will find ease and peace in your heart with the help of technology.

Alper Yesiltas, a lawyer and photographer living in Istanbul, Turkey, is excited by the possibilities of artificial intelligence. He believes that imaginable things can be visualized realistically. It inspires him to start experimenting with AI. That is how As If Nothing Happened, the first collection of images of his AI-based project, came to bring the long-gone celebs back to life.

Of course, it is not an easy process, nor is it a quick one. However, the results are fascinating. They are so real and nostalgic that they will make you miss the person even more. Let’s see who is waiting to meet their fans again!

Jackson has been referred to as the “King of Pop” for having transformed the art of music videos and paving the way for modern pop music. For much of Jackson’s career, he had an unparalleled worldwide influence over the younger generation. On June 25, 2009, less than three weeks before the first This Is It show was due to begin in London, with all concerts sold out, Jackson passed away from cardiac arrest, caused by a propofol and benzodiazepine overdose.

Joplin’s passing in October 1970 at age 27 stunned her fans and shocked the music world. Joplin had a profound influence on many singers. Janis Joplin recorded four albums in her four-year career. One of the most successful and widely known female rock stars of her era, she was noted for her powerful mezzo-soprano vocals and “electric” stage presence. Joplin passed away due to a heroin overdose in 1970.

#3. Heath Ledger – I wish he hadn’t been affected by the exhaustion of his role.

As the news of Ledger’s passing became public, throughout the night of 22 January 2008, and the following day, media crews, mourners, fans, and other onlookers began gathering outside his apartment building, with some leaving flowers or other memorial tributes. Portraying a variety of roles, from romantic heroes to tragic characters, Ledger created a hodgepodge of characters that are deliberately unlike one another.

#4. Freddie Mercury – I wish he hadn’t got that disease.

Regarded as one of the greatest lead singers in the history of rock music, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Mercury defied the conventions of a rock frontman, with his highly theatrical style influencing the artistic direction of Queen. On the evening of 24 November 1991, Mercury was gone forever at the age of 45 at his home in Kensington due to bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS.

#5. John Lennon – I wish he hadn’t been in New York that day.

Lennon continues to be mourned throughout the world and has been the subject of numerous memorials and tributes. Lennon was characterized by the rebellious nature and acerbic wit in his music, writing, and drawings, on film, and in interviews. His songwriting partnership with Paul McCartney remains the most successful in history.

#6. Bruce Lee – I wish he hadn’t taken that painkiller that day.

Lee is considered by commentators, critics, media, and other martial artists to be the most influential martial artist of all time, and a pop culture icon of the 20th century, who bridged the gap between East and West. 1973, he passed away after a few days suffering severe headache caused by cerebral edema.

#7. Kurt Cobain – I wish he had decided to stay.

Through his angst-fueled songwriting and anti-establishment persona, Cobain’s compositions widened the thematic conventions of mainstream rock. He was heralded as a spokesman for Generation X and is considered one of the most influential musicians in the history of alternative rock. On April 8, 1994, Cobain was gone for good at his home in Seattle at the age of 27; police concluded he had died on April 5 from a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head.

#8. Jimi Hendrix – I wish he hadn’t sought the inspiration he needed elsewhere.

Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes him as “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music”. In 1970, he passed away accidentally in London from barbiturate-related asphyxia on September 18.

#9. 2pac – I wish he hadn’t been involved in that event that would cause him to face the mafia.

Tupac Amaru Shakur is widely considered one of the most influential rappers of all time. Much of Shakur’s music has been noted for addressing contemporary social issues that plagued inner cities, and he is considered a symbol of activism against inequality. On September 7, 1996, Shakur was shot four times by an unidentified assailant in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. He passed away six days later.

#10. Elvis Presley – I wish he decided to live a life where he paid more attention to the health of his heart.

Dubbed the “King of Rock and Roll”, he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines during a transformative era in race relations, led him to both great success and initial controversy. Years of prescription drug abuse and unhealthy eating habits severely compromised his health. He passed away suddenly in 1977 at his Graceland estate at the age of 42.
