Debbie Gibson On Being A Teen Star
Marc Gordon - August 19, 2018

Debbie Gibson first entered our lives during the 80s with her hit song Only In My Dreams.  The single was released in 1986 and was signed right away. Her first album for recorded in a mere month, and made it’s way onto the Top 40 charts.

 

She became the youngest artist to both write, produce and perform a Billboard number-one single, for her song Foolish Beat.  Gibson was one of the biggest pop stars of her time, and she also became a style icon with her rolled up jeans and bowler hats.

 

To some people however, she was so much more. At the young age of 18, she was already a role model to girls across the globe, and was a special impact on a girl named Meghan.

 

Meghan got to meet Gibson as her Make A Wish trip. She wasn’t supposed to live more than 6 months, but Meghan survived and credits it to the healing power of music.  Meghan is still alive today, and is in touch with Debbie.

 

While Gibson loves keeping the connection with her fans today, she’s thankful that she didn’t have to have the constant contact that stars are expected to keep up with now. She reveals that all the constant feedback can be hard for people psychologically, and she’s grateful not have had that element as kid.

 

Back in the day when she was touring, cell phones didn’t even exist. She was on a bus living in a bubble by herself, and she wouldn’t have had it any other way.
