Four For Friday - Changing Room

Last week I got a chance to reminisce with someone from my past. She was an A list singer. Not a one hit wonder, but probably a one album wonder for sure. Hey, it is what it is and she has made a comfortable living off that album ever since. When she launched her career, there was a very unique way of doing so that had never been previously done but has been copied many times since. Basically it was go to your buyers. Go to your audience. It worked really well for record sales, but has kept this singer basically out of changing rooms since those days. Why? Because every single day she was forced into one by the person who groomed her from a very early age. Tween years. Each day he would tell her she needed to thank him for making her dreams coming true and making her a star. She knows exactly how many days the tour was and how many times she was forced to thank him and is permanently damaged by what he did to her. Her parents trusted him and their trust was misplaced. He still sends her emails reminding her that she owes her career to him and she should never forget it. She doesn't.

Tiffany? I don't think this is someone like Entys known friends like Lisa Loeb or the go-gos.

Krab said...

I was thinking Debbie Gibson or Tiffany.

Tiffany in the malls for sure

Misskitty said...

Tiffany. Giveaway was “go to your BUYERS”. She started out by touring shopping malls across the US

Remember, Tiffany got her start by travelling to malls and performing. So when Enty says "going to your audience", that lines up with exactly how she broke in to the industry.

Yup and “changing rooms”

Krab, MissKitty ++ Yes, Debbie Gibson was who I thought of first too as she toured Malls, like Robin Sparkles did. But the Gibber had 2-3 albums, I thought... so maybe it's Tiffany?

Puts a darker spin on:

I think we're alone now
There doesn't seem to be anyone around

BasiljH said...

CuriousTex... that letter she let him post on her fan site is all the more disturbing if he molested her and forced her to 'thank' him... I keep throwing up in my mouth, a lot.

cebii said...

I vote Enty tells someone like Daniel Cormier how many times, and he punches Tobin once for each time. It won't help Tiffany, I know.

I saw Tiffany perform at Epcot center about a year ago. She had a terrible cold and fought through for her fans. Class act all around.

Sucks if this is her.

Taylor Dayne? ALso, is Taylor Dayne Fergie's mom?

Poor Tiffany, was everything from the 80's completely rotten at the core?

Sad. I remember as a little kid thinking that child stars and young people in the entertainment industry must’ve had the perfect life. When in reality most of them were just prey for the swarming monsters :(

Tiffany. It was a big deal that she did mall tours. Scummy man and still reminding her? Horrific. I hope she has a great support system now

Jon said...

Tiffany still sounds AMAZING. Somebody write her a comeback hit.

Sara, Making It Work said...

This is Tiffany, but honestly, the scenario probably applies to Debbie too, and many others. Maybe a few details changed.

shakey said...

CuriousTex, did you click on the link to his long sob story?

https://www.tiffany.org/forum/tobin.html

I didn't read the whole thing. Such a turnoff.

Gator said...

Tiffany. I can't imagine Debbie Gibson & her people allowing this even when she was younger.

Nascent Plane said...

Does she have approval control on her fansite? I highly doubt Tiffany would let him submit that long screed if this story is meant to be her, and also true. Note that those are two separate things. I'm noticing a bias in Enty toward believing these kinds of blinds, perhaps because of the gossip market in 2018.

VDOVault said...

Hmmm I was thinking of Jill Sobule & her model for selling music but the changing room part does not seem to fit her.

VRWC said...

Alanis Morriset (sp?)

zerooptions said...

Texas Terry, just to be different

MichiganMama59 said...

She should bite his dick off and watch him bleed to death..

Anony said...

Same here. Made my stomach turn how self-serving it sounded.

So if you're an ugly pervert and got some money and contacts, show business is the way to go to get your rocks off, not real estate? CDAN is a real eye-opener. Behind every record and movie there's a dirty story or two to be told.
