Tiffany, the singing sensation many remember from the hit 'I Think We're Alone Now,' is appearing at Circuit Nightclub for Chix Mix Productions on Friday,
July 20th. I caught up to Tiffany on the road to her next gig.
NS: Hey Tiffany! So, where are you right now?
Tiffany ( on the phone ) : I just left Texas and I am on my way to Alabama, so not a lot out here right now. I am doing a show there.
NS: I want to talk about your singing career and how it all got started.
T: When I was 14, I met George Tobin and signed a production deal. I started going into the recording studio and it took us about a year to do the first record. It was really MCA that we decided to go with. My manager came to me with the idea of singing in malls and I thought it was a great idea because I would always hang out there with my friends.
NS: Well, they did call you the 'Mall Madonna.'
T: Yes, they did. 'Mall Girl,' 'Teen Queen,' I have heard it all!
NS: Was the Celebrity Fit Club experience a good one?
T: It was an amazing experience. have never really had a weight problem, but when I am disciplined it shows and when I am not, it shows as well. When I am on tour I want to eat and enjoy the good ol' southern cooking when I am in the South. And at the end of the road, I was 30 pounds overweight. When I got back to LA, people were like, 'Girrrl, what happened to you?' When they called me for Celebrity Fit Club, I said yes.
NS: Who was your favorite person on the show?
T: Well, I have the utmost respect for Harvey. I bonded with Maureen and Ross. Dustin worked my nerves, here and there. Sometimes I wished he would just shut up, because there was a lot of drama.
NS: Do you think he was playing up to the cameras?
T: I think it was some of that when the cameras were rolling. I was Kimberley's friend and I didn't think he was funny when he would say really mean things.
NS: So on that note, let's get back to the music. You have a new CD called Just Me. How is that going?
T: I am on tour supporting the CD and it is the singer/ songwriter stuff that I love. Stevie Nicks is my idol.
NS: I just saw her in concert! She put on an incredible show.
T: I know. I love getting out there and doing all the songs, new and old. I am really thankful that my fans allow me to do that.
NS: Is everything covered on your Web site?
T: Yes, it is www.tiffanymusicsite.com and it has all my tour dates are on there.
NS: Well, we are excited that you are coming to Chicago.
T: I love it there! It is one of my favorite places to play.
NS: Well, I don't want to distract you from driving, so see you soon!
T: Take care.
