ItsNotYouItsMe "Back To The Future" Edition Salutes Pioneer Rockess Suzi Quatro In A New Documentary Featuring Debbie Harry

ItsNotYouItsMe "Back To The Future" Edition salutes pioneer rockess Suzi Quatro in a new documentary featuring Debbie Harry!

"Debbie Harry, Alice Cooper and more appear in the trailer for Suzi Q, a new film about pioneering female rock star Suzi Quatro, out this summer.

Directed by Liam Firmager, the documentary chronicles Quatro’s career, from her beginnings in Detroit to her breakthrough in 1973. “She was the first, and broke the ice and kicked the doors for us gals,” Cherie Currie says in the opening of the clip. “If people have overlooked her, that’s their fault.”

“A lot of girls had tried to be Suzi Quatro,” Cooper notes. “But when it’s in the DNA, you can’t fake that.” Adds Harry: “This woman has so much energy, so much talent. She could have done anything.”

The film also stars Joan Jett, Tina Weymouth, the GoGo’s Kathy Valentine, L7’s Donita Sparks and Henry Winkler — whom Quatro played opposite in Happy Days as Leather Tuscadero.

“Over the four-plus years making the film, the idea that Suzi’s status had been forgotten in the USA slowly dawned on us — because in the rest of the world everyone knows that she is the first and one of the most important trailblazers in rock and roll,” producer Tait Brady said in a statement. “And that then influenced the direction the film took — it became our mission to redress history.”

Suzi Q will be released virtually for 24 hours on July 1st, featuring a Q&A with Quatro (via Utopia Distribution). It will be released on-demand on July 3rd." -

Toss the Tux: A Groom’s Alternative to the Classic Black Tuxedo

Today’s groom – just like the bride – does not need to follow convention. The world is open when it comes to celebrating your love with a wedding that reflects the personal voice, style, and story of the happy couple. This includes your attire as a groom! It might seem like the options begin and end with a black tuxedo, but that is not true.

We have some of the best alternatives right here for the modern groom. So, if you toss the tux, what do you wear? Let’s find out!

Kill it in a Kilt
For couples with Irish or Scottish heritage, turning to this traditional attire is perfectly acceptable. Couples can even find tartan prints in family colors! There are several sites providing kilt rentals for grooms and their groomsmen, check out Kilts n Stuff to start! Kilts are a great way to celebrate your wedding and tie in family heritage as well.

All-White Wear
The classic black tux look has been done a million times, but what about an all-white tuxedo? Switching out the black garb for white dress pants and jacket is a way to brighten the groom’s look and works well for weddings in warm climates. It worked for Gucci Mane at his 2017 wedding to Keyshia Ka’oir!

Suit Up in Three Pieces
If you want a clean-cut look without the formalities, try a three-piece suit. It is not as formal as the tuxedo, but it is more likely to be worn more than once. It can come in a few different material options with a silk suit or black wool material appearing the dressiest. A grey or navy suit in linen or cotton fabric will give a relaxed look and works well with leisurely beach weddings.

Vivacious Velvet Tuxedo
If you want a groom look that is colorful and boisterous next to a class black look, try a velvet tuxedo jacket. This option works well with winter or late fall weddings and comes in a softer silhouette than a traditional jacket. You can often find velvet jackets in navy, hunter green, and burgundy, all warm, vibrant colors. Just keep a lint roller on hand!

Patterns and Pinstripes
This option allows the groom to be playful and find something that matches their personality. It can be subtle pinstripes or retro-inspired patterns. It will combine style and tradition in an outfit no one will soon forget. If your groom is anything but ordinary, look at this option for the big day. Plus, when styled right, the jacket can be worn with dress pants or jeans on another occasion.

Vest Only
If your wedding is casual, try ditching the blazer altogether. An outdoor or country wedding is the perfect place for a tailored shirt and simple hip vest. Grooms can spice this look up with fun suspenders and bow ties for flair. A casual groom can even give this look more air with rolled-up sleeves and open collars, demonstrating how at-ease they are with their big day.

Double-Breasted Suit
A luxe, tailored suit is always an excellent choice for men uncomfortable in a tuxedo. Some grooms go for double-breasted suits, which give off a retro vibe. These suits have to be fitted correctly, but when they are, a very fashionable groom emerges.

Military Dress
This look depends on the service status of the groom. For those who have served or currently serve in the military, dress uniform is dapper and captivating. We do recommend changing into something a little more comfortable for the reception, though!

Gone are the days where the groom needed a black tuxedo and nothing more. These days, the groom is free to be as creative as the bride and can find an outfit that is creative and reflects the wedding vibe. There are plenty of options out there, so get to shopping!

Dig Out The Go-Go’s New Documentary Release Date!

Dig out The Go-Go’s new documentary release date!

"The Go-Go’s, a new documentary about the all-female New Wave band, will air on Showtime on August 1st at 9 pm E.T.

The documentary chronicles the Los Angeles band’s rise to fame in 1981 with the release of their debut Beauty and the Beat and examines their career, history and various incarnations.

“We lived it and we survived it,” the band said in a statement. “Now, looking back on our history through this film, we get to relive our journey as a band: the fun, the adventure, the highs and the lows. We hope this documentary will show the world that we were pioneers, and how our experience paved the way for many other female (and some male!) musicians.”

The film was directed by Allison Ellwood, known for her critically acclaimed 2013 Eagles documentary; she also worked on the Laurel Canyon docuseries premiering later this month. “While their musical hooks are perfect for a summer release, if you listen to their lyrics, you discover a grittiness and sophistication that serves as subterfuge beneath a seemingly effervescent surface,” Ellwood said. “The summer of 2020 will certainly be different for most of us. It’s fantastic that the Showtime audience will get a chance to see our film and experience the Go-Go’s in a new and meaningful way.”

The Go-Go’s doc premiered at Sundance in January and was slated to show at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival before the event was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

At the beginning of the year, the band announced a brief summer tour in support of the documentary. They’re scheduled to kick off on June 25th in San Diego, California, and conclude in Costa Mesa, California, on July 13th. As of right now, tickets are still on sale on their website." -

Youngin' Pop Legend, Selena Gomez Is Cooking Up A Quarantine Cooking Show At HBO Max!

Youngin' pop legend, Selena Gomez is cooking up a quarantine cooking show at HBO Max!

"HBO Max is headed into the kitchen with Selena Gomez.

The recording artist, actress and producer will headline a cooking series at the soon-to-launch streaming platform. The 10-episode series grew out of Gomez spending much more time in the kitchen during the coronavirus pandemic. But, as HBO Max puts it, "despite her many talents, it remains to be seen if cooking is one of them."

"I've always been very vocal about my love of food. I think I’ve been asked hundreds of times in interviews if I had another career, what would I do and I’ve answered that it would be fun to be a chef," said Gomez. "I definitely don’t have the formal training though! Like many of us while being home I find myself cooking more and experimenting in the kitchen."

Said HBO Max head of original content Sarah Aubrey, "We are so excited to have Selena Gomez in our first wave of programming on HBO Max and watch her adventures in the kitchen as she, like many of us, tries to improve her cooking skills during quarantine. Blending her determination with top-tier culinary artists is sure to entertain and educate viewers about something we’re all trying to work through — how to make cooking at home exciting, fun and delicious."

In each episode, Gomez will be joined remotely by a different master chef. Together, they'll take on all types of cuisine, share tips and tricks and deal with everything from smoking ovens to missing ingredients. Each installment will also highlight a food-related charity while embracing the joy and struggle of learning to cook, while inviting audiences to follow along at home.

Gomez will also executive produce via her July Moon Productions, along with Eli Holzman and Aaron Saidman of Industrial Media's The Intellectual Property Corporation. They previously collaborated on the docuseries Living Undocumented for Netflix. IPC's parent, Industrial Media, also owns B17 Entertainment, which is producing HBO Max's competition series Craftopia.

Gomez is repped by WME, Lighthouse Management + Media and Ziffren Brittenham.

WarnerMedia-owned HBO Max is set to launch May 27. It will feature a handful of originals on day one and a large library including Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos and a host of movies from the Warner Bros. studio.

ItsNotYouItsMe "Back To The Future" Edition Salutes Today In Billboard Dance History Miss Janet Jackson Erupts W/ 'Alright'!

ItsNotYouItsMe "Back To The Future" Edition salutes today in Billboard Dance History Miss Janet Jackson erupts W/ 'Alright'!

"The spring of 1990 was a big moment for powerful women. Julia Roberts was melting hearts on the big screen as the titular lead in Pretty Woman, on television Roseanne was showcasing the quotidian reality of blue-collar America, Denise Huxtable was having her post-Cosby Show college experience on A Different World and the Golden Girls were making us laugh every freakin' weekend.

But for those who were spending more time in nightclubs than in front of the screen, the real heroine of the moment was Janet Jackson, who was dominating clubs, radio and charts with her era-defining LP Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814.

Released in September of 1989, by the spring of 1990, the album had already delivered a trio of singles -- “Miss You Much,” Rhythm Nation” and “Escapade" -- to the top of Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart. (A chart which, in another blast from the past, is today -- May 14, 2020 -- topped by a remix of Diana Ross' 1976 "Love Hangover.")

The fourth and final Dance Club Song No. 1 from Rhythm Nation 1814 would come via "Alright," which occupied the top spot 30 years ago today, in a pair of Billboard issues dated May 5 and May 12, 1990. Released later on, remixes by Shep Pettibone, Todd Terry and CJ Mackinstosh pushed the track further into clubland.

Written by Jackson and her frequent collaborators Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, "Alright" was an effervescent, new jack swing/R&B hybrid primed to move your body to. Jackson certainly did, strutting through a bustling cityscape in a zoot suit for the song's music video, which was partially orchestrated by veteran Hollywood choreographer Michael Kidd and stylized to look like a 1930s and 1950s musical. (The clip's style also forecasted that of Dick Tracy, which arrived in theaters in June of 1990.)

The song sampled soul singer Lyn Collins' 1972 hit "Think (About It)" meaning that that song's producer, the one and only James Brown, got a producer credit on "Alright."

At the time, “Alright” was Janet’s seventh total No. 1 on the Dance Club Songs chart. She now has 20, putting her in fourth place on the all-time list. (Madonna leads with 50). "Alright" also earned Jackson two 1991 Grammy Award nominations for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song. The song remains a part of her live show and was performed by Jackson during her 2019 Las Vegas residency, Janet Jackson: Metamorphosis." -
