80’s Pop singers Debbie Gibson and Tiffany say that they can relate to young stars like Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears, because just like their teen-pop counterparts, they too have had their fair share of meltdowns, and still have them (privately, of course) to this day!
“I had my meltdowns then and still have them now, but I just do them in private,” Debbie says. Tiffany wholeheartedly agrees, saying if she would have done something like shave her head or smoke out of a bong during the height of her career, there wouldn’t have been paparazzi or camera phones waiting to capture her every stumble.
“In LA, the difference now is that everything is right out in the open,” Tiffany explains. “The barometer is different now. Before, if we would have started having all of our meltdowns in public, it probably would have ruined our careers. It wasn’t entertainment at that point.”
