Badge Friday: Tiffany

Tiffany Badge - 1988
Okay - maybe I should be slightly embarrassed about this badge - a freebie if I remember rightly from Smash Hits magazine.

Tiffany scored with a British Number One in 1988 with I Think We're Alone Now and promptly followed that up with several chart hits including Could've Been  and a cover of The Beatles' I Saw Her Standing There but with the "Her" replaced subtly with a "Him".

Tiff frequently battled for the pop princess crown with fellow American girl Debbie Gibson between 1989 and 1991, their records often timed to coincide each others release dates. Debbie was  regarded the superior as she wrote her own songs but when it came down to it did anyone really care?

Twenty odd years on, both Tiffany (now an actress) and Debbie Gibson (also an actress!) seem to have kissed and made up over their chart wars and have teamed up for a ScyFy B Movie entitled Mega Python V Gatoroid which also features a guest appearance from Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees. In a strange sort of way, I'm looking forward to that one!
