According to Netflix programming chief Ted Sarandos, The Kissing Noah ( Jacob Elordi) is off-limits when it comes to Elle's love life. I meet them in an audition, or like sometimes with a book character, So, I personally did not read it before filming but I read it after filming, and I am obsessed with it. After the event, April and Jimmy meet and Jimmy decides to help April stop Meldar from destroying all the planets. April then kisses Jimmy-a sign of trust in her culture-which of course Cindy Sheen: My entire life is flashing before my eyes again!

Kiss (often stylized as KISS) is an American rock band formed in New York City in January In September , Kiss announced that, after 45 years of recording and Simmons and Stanley met him in a nightclub where he was playing drums. . that would cement their image as larger-than-life rock and roll superheroes.
Of the four, Frehley's album was the most successful, and spawned the only hit single, a cover of " New York Groove ", written by Russ Ballard and originally performed by Hello. Filming commenced in the spring of Although the project was proposed to the band as a cross between A Hard Day's Night and Star Warsthe final result fell far short of those expectations. The script underwent numerous rewrites, and the band particularly Criss and Frehley grew increasingly frustrated with the filmmaking process.
It was released theatrically, after many changes, outside the U. The band members were unhappy with the finished film, and would speak about their filmmaking experience in later interviews with a mix of humorous embarrassment and regret. They felt that the film portrayed them more as clowns than superheroes. The artistic failure of the film led to a rift between the band and Aucoin. Final make-up years[ edit ] Kiss' first album of new material in two years, Dynasty May 22,continued its platinum streak.
Session drummer Anton Fig did almost all the percussion on the album while Criss recovered from an automobile accident. The only song to feature Criss' drumming was "Dirty Livin'", on which he also sang lead. Plans were drawn up for a Kiss-themed traveling amusement park called "Kiss World", but were abandoned because of the immense costs involved;  however, "The Return of Kiss" saw a marked decline in attendance.
Kiss themselves did little to dissuade this new fan base, donning colorful costumes that reinforced a cartoonish image for these younger fans. One very public indication of the heightened friction within the group was an infamous October 31, interview on Tom Snyder 's late-night The Tomorrow Show. During the episode, a visibly irritated Simmons and Stanley attempted, unsuccessfully, to contain the inebriated Frehley, whose frequent laughter and joking overshadowed the conversation between Snyder and the rest of the band.
Criss made references to his large gun collection, to the chagrin of Simmons. His drumming skills had noticeably eroded, and he even intentionally slowed down—or stopped playing altogether—during some concerts.
The final show of the tour December 16, was the last time Criss performed with the group for almost 17 years, although he remained an official member for nearly six more months.
Showcasing a slick, contemporary pop sound, Unmasked released May 20, had the dubious distinction of being the first Kiss album since Dressed to Kill to not achieve platinum sales.
Soon after the album's release, Criss' departure was officially announced. One of the many who auditioned was Tico Torres who would later be with Bon Jovi. They finally settled on a little-known drummer-guitarist-pianist-keyboardist-singer from Brooklyn named Paul Charles Caravello born July 12, who adopted the stage name Eric Carr. His first make-up design was modeled on a hawk, though it was rejected as Stanley felt it looked more like a chicken.
Carr ultimately settled on a "Fox" persona. This was Kiss's only U.

The band's tour of Australia and New Zealand, on the other hand, was one of the biggest in their history, as they played to sold-out crowds and received overwhelmingly positive press coverage. Early press reports indicated that the new album would be a return to the hard rock style that had originally brought the band success. However, 's Music from "The Elder" was a concept album featuring medieval horns, strings, harpsand synthesizers.
To make matters worse, having received negative feedback following their record company's preview of the album, Kiss altered the record's track sequence in most countries to emphasize potential singles "The Oath" and "A World Without Heroes", which all but guaranteed the inability of listeners to understand the already muddled storyline. Once released, fan reaction to The Elder was harsh; it failed to achieve gold status and peaked at No. One was a performance on the ABC late-night variety program Fridayswhile the second was a lip-synced performance that was broadcast via satellite during Italy's Sanremo Music Festival.
Absent from the satellite performance was Frehley, who had become increasingly frustrated with Kiss' new musical direction. Upset with the band's decision to record Music from "The Elder", he did not actively participate in the album's creation, providing lead vocals for only one track, "Dark Light".
He did not appear at a special concert at Studio 54 in New York City, leaving Kiss to perform as a trio. He recorded his guitar parts at his home studio in Wilton, Connecticut and mailed them to Ezrin. Another source of frustration for Frehley was that with the departure of Criss, and with Carr not being an equal partner in the band, he was often outvoted 2-to-1 on group decisions.
In JuneFrehley's departure from the band was negotiated, although he did not officially leave until December, and remained a business partner with Simmons and Stanley until Although Frehley had already decided to leave the band, he was pictured on the covers of 's Killers and Creatures of the Nightalthough he did not participate in the recording of either album.
In Frehley's absence, Kiss utilized a number of guitarists for the recording of the album, including Vinnie Vincent born Vincent John Cusano on August 6, Frehley's last appearance with the band until the reunion was in the music video for the single " I Love It Loud ", which was co-written by Vincent.
Frehley also appeared on the cover of the original Creatures of the Night album artwork.
When the album was remixed and re-released in with a non-make-up cover and a slightly different song order, to reflect the band's roster change and abandonment of their make-up and costumes, Vincent was again absent from the album cover, as then-current lead guitarist, Bruce Kulickappeared instead. Vincent officially replaced Frehley as lead guitarist in Decemberas the band embarked on its 10th Anniversary Tour.
Specifically, according to Simmons, "it sounded like a fruit vendor. Simmons later suggested the name change to "Vinnie Vincent". Vincent started actively pushing to join Kiss as a full member.
Despite the misgivings that both Simmons and Stanley harbored about his personality, Vincent was taken into the band. Stanley designed a character, "The Wiz"   also known as "The Egyptian Warrior",  and make-up centered around an Egyptian ankhfor Vincent. A persona as "The Ankh Warrior" or similar is not mentioned in the book at all. This incarnation of Kiss was to be the last incarnation of the original make-up era. Vincent's personality did not mesh well with either Stanley or Simmons, and he was dismissed from Kiss at the end of the Creatures tour.
He was reinstated before recording started for Lick It Up because Simmons and Stanley could not find a new lead guitarist on such short notice. Vincent appeared on the cover of Lick It Up and was credited as the lead guitarist.

Personality issues arose once again, and Vincent was fired following the Lick It Up tour, due in part to excessive guitar soloing at a concert in Quebec. He was replaced by Mark St. John birth name Mark Norton. Vincent's work on Creatures of the Night was not officially recognized until the album was remastered in Before long, Vincent fell out with Simmons and Stanley for a third time, and they again severed their musical ties.
Persistent rumors circulated for years among Kiss fans regarding the true reason for Vincent's dismissals from Kiss, with at least one band member refusing to comment except to say that legally it was not up for discussion.
Simmons stated in an interview several years later that Vincent's firing was for "unethical behavior", but he did not elaborate: I named Vincent Cusano, 'Vinnie Vincent'. That's the only gift he's allowed. It's interesting that Vinnie hasn't changed his name back to Vinnie Cusano. Vinnie, for the record, was fired for unethical behavior, not because of lack of talent.
The guy is very talented. Unmasking[ edit ] Sensing it was time for a change, Kiss made the decision to abandon their trademark make-up and costumes. The band officially appeared in public without make-up for the first time on a September 18, appearance on MTV, which coincided with the release of Lick It Up.
Lick It Up became Kiss' first gold record in three years, but the tour was even more sparsely attended than the previous one. Vincent did not get along with Simmons and Stanley, and he left the band at the conclusion of the tour in March Vincent's replacement was Mark St.
John, a session player and guitar tutor. John, Kiss released the album Animalize on September 13, Animalize followed the success of Lick It Up, and due in part to consistent MTV play for the " Heaven's on Fire " video, Animalize was the band's best-selling record in America during the decade, with over two million albums sold. With the success of the album and subsequent tour, Kiss had recaptured some of their earlier glory though not to the level of their s heyday.
John, however, came down with reactive arthritis during tour rehearsals, and only performed at a handful of shows. John was relieved of his duties from Kiss in December and was replaced by Kulick born December 12,in Brooklyn. Kulick was Kiss' fourth lead guitarist in less than three years, but he stayed with the band for 12 years.
Bruce Kulick pictured here in was the lead guitarist for Kiss from to This was later released as the band's first home video, Animalize Live Uncensored. The lineup of Stanley, Simmons, Carr and Kulick turned out to be the most stable since the original, and for the rest of the s, Kiss released a series of platinum albums: Crazy Nights, in particular, was one of Kiss' most successful albums overseas.
The single " Crazy Crazy Nights " reached No. Although the album failed to achieve platinum status, it spawned the hit ballad " Forever ", co-written by Michael Bolton. Simmons, arguably the driving force in Kiss during the s, became less involved with the group in the s as he pursued outside interests, most notably a film career. Stanley took a more prominent role as a result. Before recording could begin in earnest, however, tragedy struck.
In Marchit was discovered that Carr had a tumor on his heart. It was successfully removed the following month, but more tumors were soon discovered in his lungs. Carr received chemotherapy and was pronounced cancer-free in July. However, in September he suffered the first of two cerebral hemorrhages. He died on November 24,at the age of Singer had played with Paul Stanley previously, as part of Stanley's backing band during a solo tour.
Kiss released Revenge on May 19, It featured a leaner, harder-edged sound, as indicated by the first single, " Unholy ". In a surprise move, Kiss enlisted Vincent to help with songwriting duties. The album debuted in the Top 10 and went gold. Kiss embarked on a brief club tour of the U.S1: EP1: Meet the Bros
Four days later, Kiss were inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk. June saw the release of Kiss My Ass: Classic Kiss Regrooveda compilation album featuring popular artists of the era putting their own spin on Kiss songs. Inthe group released the book Kisstorya page, 9 pounds 4. That same year, the band embarked on a unique and well-received Worldwide Kiss Convention Tour. The conventions were all-day events, featuring displays of vintage Kiss stage outfits, instruments and memorabilia; performances by Kiss cover bands; and dealers selling Kiss merchandise from every stage of the band's career.
Kiss appeared live at the conventions, conducted question and answer sessions, signed autographs, and performed a two-hour acoustic set composed mostly of spontaneous fan requests. On the first U.
It was the first time Criss had performed publicly with the band in nearly 16 years. The band contacted Criss and Frehley and invited them to participate in the event. Both joined Kiss on stage for several songs at the end of the set: In the weeks following the Unplugged concert, however, the band with Kulick and Singerreturned to the studio for the first time in three years to record a follow-up to Revenge.
The Final Sessions was completed in Februarybut its release was delayed for almost two years. Bootleg copies of the album circulated widely among fans. These efforts culminated with a public event as dramatic as any the band had staged since their unmasking on MTV. With the following statements, Tupac Shakur introduced the original Kiss lineup, in full makeup and Love Gun-era stage outfits, to a rousing ovation at the 38th Annual Grammy Awards: We tired of that.

According to unused dialogue, she and Mandy were once friends. Zoe is one of the more down to earth people in the game.
She and Jimmy seem to have a lot in common; they both come from tough home lives and tend to be credited as being troublemakers, but are both feisty, gutsy kids who enjoy fighting and are prepared to stand up to corruption. She seems to be intelligent and likes to read, though she claims this is strictly out of boredom.
She complains about how everyone in Bullworth is "fake", and has personal grudges against Mr. Burton and Tad Spencer. She states that she prefers to date older men and junkies, thinking that they're more "romantic" but dates Jimmy in the end.
Although she's not a full-fledged tomboy, Zoe has several likes and interests that aren't stereotypically girly. Her idea of a good date is smashing up the inventory of Spencer Shipping, she laughs when someone throws a dead rat, and her dialogue when threatening and fighting indicate that she enjoys it.
However, she isn't tougher than any other girl in the game. This is due to game mechanics. Role in game Edit Zoe can be seen as early as Chapter 2as she participates in the street Go-Kart Racesbut she can't be interacted with.
Jimmy first meets Zoe while wandering around Blue Skies Industrial Parkwhere they almost get in a fight when Zoe aggressively asks Jimmy what he's looking at. They hit it off pretty well after discovering their mutual dislike of Mr.

Crabblesnitch that she was unfairly expelled. Jimmy and Zoe kiss as the credits roll. Players have alternately reported her being hostile to Jimmy, and willing to kiss and make out with Jimmy. The exact mechanics behind this are unknown. However, various unknown mechanics in the game can combine to get friendly reactions from girls with whose cliques Jimmy does not have good faction. This was likely done to prevent programming errors, as classifying Zoe as a Townie would cause her to automatically attack other students much like other Townies.
