* TroubledProduction: The "Rock Me Tonite" video turned out the way it did because of this. According to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_Me_Tonite#History the Wikipedia article]], he had come up on his own with a concept whereby he and some fans would be shown, in grainy film and subdued colors like ''AmericanGigolo'', getting ready for a concert and then going to it. The first director he approached, the guy who'd done "Beat It", was willing to do it but only if he got a bigger budget, and as he knew Squier's label, Capitol, would likely not give him that much money, he turned it down. The second director had his own concept which Squier didn't like. So, with two weeks to go till the World Premiere Video date they promised MTV, and his tour coming up, they were receptive when Kenny Ortega offered to do it. Squier was too nice a guy to refuse to do the video when he saw the set, or tell MTV to wait, or reject the whole thing and do another video. But if he had been, we'd have been spared the spectacle of him prancing around the bedroom set, rolling around on the satin sheets and tearing off a pink tank top. [[MistakenForGay Everyone thought he was gay]], and he stopped selling out shows.
