I'd settle for Love Under Old Management at this point since I can't watch the movie. razz

Im glad it did so well in the ratings. Chaka posted on her fb page that she read the script (i'm assuming Indira wanted to get her blessing before taking the role) and she said she knew the writers would be taking "creative liberties" when it came to her relationship with Miki. So i'm taking that to mean the drug scenes never happened.

Loved Miki's narration. And they really threw Chaka under the bus, if the depiction was untrue.

I liked it much better than those Lifetime and Vh1 biopics.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I just love her attitude & personality. As good as the film was, I'm afraid the actress didn't capture her sense of humor.
