Debbie Gibson Opens Up About Being A Teen Star, And One Fan's "Dying Wish"

Debbie Gibson first came into our lives in the mid 80s with her song "Only In My Dreams." The singer/songwriter released the single in 1986, and was signed immediately. She recorded her first album in only four weeks, and managed to make her way onto the Top 40 charts. Gibson would later become the youngest artist to write, produce, and perform a Billboard number-one single, which she earned for her song "Foolish Beat." She was one of the biggest names in pop music in the 80s, and her bowler hats and rolled up jeans made her the style icon

The Original 'Transformers' Movie Is Coming Back To Theaters And We're Ready To Roll Out

How many times have you watched the classic 1986 Transformers movie? Probably a lot right? The classic story about our favorite robots in disguise is the only one that matters to a lot of us. Sorry Shia LaBeouf, but the only Optimus Prime we really want to see is the cartoon one. Okay, sure, a lot of people seem to love the live-action movies, otherwise why else would they be making a sixth one? But I think we can all admit that the cartoon is where true fans go when they want to watch some quality Transformers content. The movie

80s Icon Kathleen Turner Opens Up About Hollywood Drama And Her 'Bad Reputation'

If there is one voice out there that could make you feel like you are stepping into the 80s, it is the raspy voice of Kathleen Turner. Turner starred in iconic 80s movies like Body Heat, Peggy Sue Got Married, Romancing the Stone, and many others, but her long career hasn't always been easy going. In a new interview with Vulture, she was very blunt about her time in Hollywood, especially when it comes to her opinions of other actors.

First Look At The New 'Terminator' Sequel Shows Sarah Connor Is Back And Ready To Fight

The Terminator movies were some of the most influential action movies of our time. They made us think twice about having AI robots, and honestly, they freaked a lot of us out completely when we were young. Should we have been watching Terminator as kids? Probably not. Did that stop us? Nope! Instead we all just developed what I'll call a 'healthy concern' for super-mega corporations that we think could be turning into the next Skynet. Sarah Connor became our hero. The way she transformed from damsel to badass lady really stood out as something different, and even though her

'Alf' Is Getting A Reboot, So You'd Better Keep An Eye On Your Cats

When you look back on the 80s, one of the most beloved shows that people still reminisce about is definitely a weird one. ALF was released in 1986, and starred an extraterrestrial named ALF. It was an acronym for "Alien Life Form,"  and somehow this weird little creature ended up living in a suburban home with a family. Even though I watched most of this series, I don't know that I could explain the reasoning behind any of this, but the fact of the matter was puppets were pretty popular and it managed to become a huge hit.

Libraries Have Started Hosting Bob Ross Paint-Alongs, But You Might Wait Months To Get In

If there is one person that we can all agree is a genuinely delightful person, it would be Bob Ross. Every single word out of his mouth feels like it's designed specifically to relax you, and every single piece of art he created was unbelievably amazing. Everyone who has watched his show on PBS knows that he would start by slapping down a layer of liquid white, and then start applying paint in seemingly random areas. A little here, a little there, and then suddenly he's got this gorgeous landscape scene with a mountain, some fluffy clouds, and of course
