Kyle Meredith With...
Debbie Gibson sits down with Kyle Meredith to talk about The Body Remembers, her first album of new material in twenty years. The legendary pop star tells us of her penchant for flipping the script on her career, having spent years on in musicals and movies, and discusses the differences and similarities of pop music between the 80s and today. Gibson also dives into her friendship with New Kids On the Block’s Joey McEntire, who she’s currently performing with in a Las Vegas residency, and their duet on a new version of her classic "Lost In Your Eyes" that is also featured on the new record, how she balances her past nostalgia with pushing toward something new, and the importance of of imperfections within her art.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Lori and I were chatting about how it feels like Tiffany was seen by many as the better "artist" because she was more 'adult" when Debbie was just seen as a kid . This is our defense of Debbie. No shade to Tiffany at all. We like them both.
The Body Remembers - First Impressions - Debbie Gibson
Time To Talk
Gibson announced the release of the album on June 4, 2021. In an interview with Billboard magazine, she stated, "This album very much feels like Electric Youth 2021 in a lot of ways." Gibson also said, "The variety of styles, the way it encapsulates my life right now -- I really wanted to let it hang out on this album. The goal was to make an undeniably special, authentic, well-crafted and yet still raw album. I feel great about the fact we found that. I feel like I've made an undeniable album." Gibson came up with the album title while writing the songs during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. "I was writing both upbeats and ballads, but I was gravitating toward the upbeats just because everybody needs that energy shift now. Pop music does that — it shifts energy. That's where the title comes from — the body remembers all the visceral moments tied to your favorite pop songs." The song "Legendary" was written in memory of Kobe Bryant. Gibson describes "One Step Closer" as a "throwback style of Dua Lipa and Kylie Minogue." "Strings" focuses on "putting self-love above everything." Among the album's 15 tracks is "Lost in Your Eyes, the Duet" a new recording of Gibson's 1989 hit single with Joey McIntyre. The duo first performed the song together during New Kids on the Block's Mixtape Tour in 2019. The single was released on streaming services on June 4 while the official music video was uploaded on Gibson's YouTube channel on July 1. On July 12, Gibson announced "One Step Closer" as the album's second single. The official track listing was revealed on July 16.

TIFFANY (on New Music, New Tour, The 80s, Debbie Gibson, Madonna & More!)
BEHIND THE VELVET ROPE
Tiffany steps Behind The Rope. Yes, Tiffany. No last name needed Tiffany. Checking in from the road from the North American Leg of her “Shadows” Tour, one thing is clear. Tiffany is thrilled to be back on the road performing songs from her 11th full length studio album “Shadows” as well as all her retro hits we have come to know and love so much. .Tiffany chats about what it was like to larger than life famous at the young age of 16, thanks, in large part to her catchy hit “I Think We’re Alone Now” as well as a ground breaking, now infamous, mall tour that took her across America. Tiffany chats about her almost four decade long music career which has included every genre of music - pop, punk, country, ballads, rock and the ups and downs she has faced in the music business along the way. We chat about some of those other Female Icons that ruled the charts at the time Tiffany came into her own - Madonna, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, Paula Abdul, and Cyndi Lauper. We chat about her best celeb experiences - she really has met everyone - and how music has changed over the years. Tiffany discuses those other aspects of her career such as acting and reality TV - shows she has been involved in, the good, the bad, the other. Of course, we had to chat about her ties to Debbie Gibson, their friendship, their starring roles together in the SyFy classic “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (yes, it is as good as it sounds), and why the public always has associated and does and will associate each with the other. We talk about some of Tiffany’s recent tours with other acts we just can’t get enough of like NKOTB, Salt-N-Pepa, and Naughty By Nature. Tiffany reveals the current crop of musical chart topers she puts her stamp of approval on and how different being famous at a young age in the social media world of today is to her epic breakthrough in the 80’s. Finally, seeing as Music Biopics are all the rage (Elton John, Freddy Mercury, Cher), Tiffany reveals who she would love to play her in her very own life story and just what can we expect from a potential Tiffany “tell-all” book. Have we mentioned just how thrilled we are that Tiffany is back live with new music touring the states for the remainder of the year!@tiffany_tunes@behindvelvetrope@davidyontef@glitterbgirls** Our chat with Tiffany is preceded by a musical breakdown of some of our fav rocking ladies of the 80’s (joined by our fav 80s ladies from the @glitterbgirls Podcast)BONUS EPISODES at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetropeBrought to you by BETTER HELP - https://www.betterhelp.com/velvetrope (10% Off First Month - Use Code “Velvet Rope")MERCH AVAILABLE at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.
