Thirty-year-old dancer Olivia Nicole has amassed an impressive résumé since she came to Las Vegas from Owasso, Okla., population 36,000. For the last two years she’s performed as assistant dance captain, soloist and pole dancer in “X” Country at Harrah’s, the newest topless revue from the producers of longtime favorites “X” Burlesque and “X” Rocks. Before that, she graced the stages of production shows at Excalibur, Stratosphere, Bally’s, Tropicana and Planet Hollywood while also touring across the country and around the globe with live concert events.
What was it like to perform with Guns N’ Roses at T-Mobile Arena?
It was incredible, absolutely one of the highlights of my career. I will never forget going in before the concert started, going up onstage to practice and riding an elevator up to the stage, and seeing all those thousands of people. I could not even fathom how I got here. But it was one of the most rewarding and exhausting performances of my life. I’m a big classic rock fan and Guns N’ Roses is one of my all-time favorite bands, so it was great to stand by their side onstage.
Things You Missed in The Estranged Music Video!
Today we take a look at things you missed in the Estranged music video. Check it out below!
According to a new article published by the whig.com Wayne’s World Producer Lorne Michaels and director Penelope Spheeris pushed for Guns N’ Roses to be included in the film instead of the Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. It wasn’t clear which song the producer and director were pushing for however. According to the article, overrated actor Mike Myers threatened to walk out on the film if “Bohemian Rhapsody” didn’t make it into the film. The article states:
It was Myers’ first movie, and he found inspiration in his Toronto adolescence, when he, his brother and their friends would drive around and sing the Queen classic.
“If I took somebody else’s ‘Galileo!’ or somebody took mine, a fight would ensue,” Myers told Rolling Stone. “It’s just something that I always back-pocketed. Wayne’s World was my childhood. I knew only to write what I knew.”
The song also conveyed a sort of silly abandon Meyers wanted for his characters; plus, it would help make the movie feel as if you were not exactly sure what year it was, he told Maron.
But producer Lorne Michaels “was suggesting Guns N’ Roses … because at the time, Guns N’ Roses had a No. 1 song,” Myers told Rolling Stone. “I said, ‘I hear you. I think that’s really smart,’ but I didn’t have any jokes for a Guns N’ Roses song. I had lots of jokes for Bohemian Rhapsody. It’s just inherently comedic.”
Director Penelope Spheeris told Rolling Stone she did not “personally remember a big argument about the placement of Bohemian Rhapsody, but my guess is that I was probably pushing for Guns N’ Roses.”
Then, at some point, Myers threatened to walk out of the movie altogether. “I said to everybody, ‘Well I’m out. I don’t want to make this movie if it’s not Bohemian Rhapsody, and they were like, who the F are you?” Myers told Maron. “And I said, ‘I’m somebody that wants to do that movie, that’s the movie I want to do.”
