What Happened To Tiffany And Did She Ever Get Her Alone Time?

- Page 1

In 1985, the life of a 14-year-old aspiring singer by the name of Tiffany Renee Darwish changed forever when she finished second place on Star Search with Ed McMahon.

She went on to sign a contract with MCA and recorded her first studio album, Tiffany, which was released in 1987. Unfortunately, her first single, "Danny," failed to chart, so her manager, George Tobin, sent her on a nationwide shopping mall tour called "The Beautiful You: Celebrating The Good Life Shopping Mall Tour '87."

Tiffany started to build up a fan base as the shows progressed, and by the time she released her second single, a cover of Tommy James & the Shondells' hit "I Think We're Alone Now," she was popular enough to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Tiffany became a household name, and forever cemented herself as one of the decade's icons.

People Magazine described her in the title of a story as "Tiffany, the Teenage Mall Flower Who Serenades the Shoppers of America." Her shot to stardom was further fueled by her second single, “Could've Been," and for the remainder of the 80s she held her position as a pop princess competing with the likes of Debbie Gibson. She's also to thank for giving New Kids on the Block the national exposure they needed by having them open up for her U.S leg of her concert tour.

She appeared on magazine covers, MTV programs, and even provided the voice of Judy Jetson on Jetsons: The Movie, which was released in 1990.  

But as new artists began to emerge, Tiffany's star power started to diminish in the early 90s. As people's musical tastes started to shift, the pop star's career started to suffer, and before long, she was forgottten.

So where has she been this whole time?

12 Things That Only Make Sense If You Grew Up In The '80s

Kids today probably couldn't handle growing up in the '80s. You had to walk everywhere, there were corded phones, we had slow video games, we watched a lot of commercials, and had "basic" toys. Things have really improved since then, but at least we had a young Patrick Swayze. I've been feeling very nostalgic about the '80s. It honestly was a great time to grow up. Here are 12 things that only makes sense if you grew up in the best decade ever! 1. Constantly having to give your opinion on who was better, Madonna or Cyndi Lauper. Madonna seems

9 Times 80s Movies Taught Us Important Life Lessons

The 80s were the best decade for movies ever, and we all knew that. But 80s movies did more than just provide entertainment. I could just be speaking for myself, but I learned some of the greatest life lessons from my favorite 80s movies.1. Life is too short to not have fun. Ferris Bueller taught us that sometimes you have to let loose a bit and have fun. Throughout the movie he shows this by doing irresponsible and spontaneous things, which in the end shows his anxious friend, Cameron, it was exactly what he needed. When I was growing

10 Things You Miss From Your Childhood, Even Though You Pretend Not To

Y'know those things we all loved in the 90s but pretend to hate? We don't really hate them. It just seems like something we have to say when we're talking to everyone else about "how lame" everything was and how things are better now. Well LISTEN UP. They are not better. Things now are dumb and confusing and all around not cool. Do I sound like a cranky old lady when I say this? Yes. Do I care? Not even a little bit. Maybe it's because all the things we do or have now relate to being an adult, but
