MULTI-PLATINUM MUSIC ICON BRET MICHAELS TO BE PROUDLY FEATURED IN A SPECIAL STANDALONE EPISODE OF THE NEW PARAMOUNT PLUS “BEHIND THE MUSIC” STREAMING SERIES STARTING TONIGHT, THURSDAY, AUGUST 26TH
Los Angeles, CA—August 26, 2021— Today, Thursday August 26th, Paramount Plus is proud to announce musician and global entrepreneur Bret Michaels who will be profiled in the newest episode of their streaming series “Behind the Music.” For the first time ever, throughout the following weeks, Michaels will be answering questions from his fans submitted through his official website and social media channels about the “Behind the Music” special.
Paramount, with its parent company Viacom, has long been a home for Michaels’ hit television series, beginning with the cultural phenomenon of “Rock of Love” and continuing with “Life As I Know It” along with him being the only artist ever featured in two episodes of MTV’s “Cribs.” Michaels is a “cultural touchdown for the network”, in the words of former MTV Networks CEO Judy McGrath.
With his three generations of fans eagerly snapping up his game-changing autobiography entitled “Auto-Scrap-Ography” sold exclusively at ShopBretMichaels.com, demand has been overwhelming for the never-told stories and images that come directly from Michaels’ mind to the page. The “Behind the Music” episode will meet that demand with tales from the street-level underdog with an UNBROKEN fighting spirit who fought his way from playing in his Pennsylvania garage to continuing to sell out stadiums and arenas around the world. Fans that are dreaming of streaming can also head to BretMichaels.com where Michaels has created exclusive video-on-demand content such as “The Big Read,” “Videos, Songs & Stories” and the highly-purchased download “Classic Acoustic Songs & Stories” that all provide a deeper intimate look and listen given directly by Michaels.
Michaels, the son of a veteran and a lifelong diabetic, has always made giving back a priority throughout his career. His Life Rocks Foundation continues to provide support to many charities and causes around the globe. This, and his non-stop effort to bring all sides of the community together through his RESOLUTION REVOLUTION campaign, was an endeavor recognized by the world-famous Hollywood Christmas Parade Committee who named Michaels their Humanitarian of the Year in 2019 and continuing in 2020. These came at the same time as Michaels being selected as the Ambassador for World College Radio (following Coldplay and the Lumineers) where he demonstrated his legendary philanthropy once again by being the only Ambassador to personally match the organization’s financial grant out of his own pocket to keep much-needed college radio stations on the air throughout the pandemic.
The global and creative entrepreneur is also highly recognized as a “Rockstar of Real Estate.” His personally-designed Hard Rock Hotels suite is the largest in the famous hotel chain’s properties and his own real estate spans multiple properties, residential & commercial developments, and homes around the globe.
Michaels is currently on his Nothing But a Good Vibe Tour, playing only select sold-out festivals and shows around the country. He cautiously continues to navigate the ever-changing touring landscape in the new normal. Stay tuned next week when Michaels will make an announcement for details on an upcoming project.
