Deborah Gibson has Jumped the Shark, Long Live Debbie Gibson

Every time I tell a secret I remember how it used to be And I realized how much I miss you And I realize how it feels to be free Couldnt see how much I missed you (now I do) Couldnt see how much it meant Now I see my world come tumbling down (tumbling down my world) Now I see the road is bent
No, no, no, no, only in my dreams As real as it may seem It was only in my dreams

Hands down this was one of my favorite songs when I came out in the 80s' My dreams were shattered when punk came along and my Debbie Gibson disappeard from the pop scene. Years later when she made a comeback of sorts, but she was no longer Debbie Gibson, but Deborah Gibson and performing Broadway rather successfully, but I believe changing her name to Deborah was the death knell of her pop princess status, well it was for me.

What happened to our little Debbie, where did she go? She didn't become a drug addict, a drunk she never shaved her head, and she's never been to rehab, no no no, but she seemed to morph into a snotty diva who wanted to be called Deborah, and turn her back on Debbie. It's not too late to save your rightful place on the pop princess throne, bring back Debbie or you could end up doing infomorcials !!Damn too Late!! Frankie Avalon and Deborah Gibson will host an infomercial to promote the "American Bandstand" boxed set starting today, August 24, 2007 on a TV near you. Had she only read my fan letters in the nineties and listen to my advice. Why is it when people have a good thing going, they do something stupid like leave a hit TV series ala Shelly Long, David Curuso, John Travolta, er scratch that last one. Bring Back Debbie Gibson!! Nonetheless, after checking out all these YouTube songs in the process of doing this entry, I will be in the audience to see Debbie Gibson will be back in New York to do an "intimate and exciting" show at BB Kings on October 7, 2007. Tickets are on sale now.

OMG, Little Debbie!

It's too hard for me to believe that 20 years ago, over half of my life on this earth, I was jammin' to little her! It's great to see that divinely cringeful 80s outfit shot too. ;)

Deborah sang "I'm the Greatest Star" at the Broadway for Medicine Benefit back in March. It was so embarrassing! I don't know what she was thinking...especially since the GREAT Mimi Hines was there to blow the roof off that dump City Center with "The Music That Makes Me Dance". Both songs are from FUNNY GIRL and Barbra Streisand originally sang "I'm the Greatest Star" and Mimi replaced Barbra in FUNNY GIRL. Debbie should have done herself and us a favor and just stayed home.
