Catch the pre-stardom Demi Moore in Nu-Kates 'It's Not a Rumor'



Demi Moore made her mark in the ‘80s with movies like About Last Night and St. Elmos Fire, but it's a fact, not a rumor that her Hollywood roots were in music and a band called the Nu-Kats.

In 1979, Demi Guynes was a 16-year-old high school student when she met and fell in love with 29-year old singer Freddy Moore. By 1980, Demi Guynes married and became Demi Moore and was a defacto member of the Moore's power pop band Nu-Kats that was signed to Rhino Records. It's Not A Rumor was co-written by Demi and the 17-year-old appears throughout the video in a song that I would label as "surprisingly not bad."  The video was also filmed by Jan de Bont who would go on to direct two of the ‘90s biggest blockbusters with Speed and Twister.

By 1981, the Nu-Kats broke up and the marriage between Freddy and Demi did too in 1984 as Demi had already started on General Hospital and was starting to land roles in movies such as Blame It On Rio. In 1987, she married Bruce Willis in 1987 and became one of Hollywood's leading ladies in the ‘90s.
