Is Tiffany a teen queen or '80s icon? After all this time, can't she be both?



While most of us are 25-30 years removed from our high school prom, for those lucky enough to go on The '80s Cruise with Steve and Brad will have the opportunity to go to the second-chance prom with Tiffany.  Will it be worth it after All This Time?

On the recent SIT80's podcast 351, Steve has an upbeat interview with the '80s Cruise director Dane Butcher in which he glows about the upcoming appearance of Tiffany during the cruise's prom night. For girls who grew up in the late '80s, Tiffany is an icon, symbolic of the late '80s. For us a little older, Tiffany was a looked upon as teen queen that was after our time.

Hailing from the suburbs of Los Angeles County, Tiffany Darwish burst on the scene and just after turning 16 she scored a No. 1 hit with the remake I Think We're Alone Now and followed it up with a second No. 1 hit, Could've Been. In late 1988, Tiffany tried to avoid the sophomore slump with the new single All This Time.  While All This Time reached the Top 10, peaking at No. 6, the song has faded from most retro playlists, but I'm sure you'll be able to slow dance to it on the '80s Cruise.

The video for All This Time finds a maturing denim-clad 18-year-old Tiffany visiting The Boardwalk at Knott's Berry Farm taking a Big-like chance on Madame Estrella's Prophecies and a watching a creepy Charlie Chaplin marionette that looks more like Hitler than Chaplin.

While chart success faded after the '80s, Tiffany has kept busy releasing music (her seventh and last album Rose Tattoo was released in2011), acting, a Playboy pictorial, reality TV and yes, even performing on cruise ships.
