It was on this very day in history that Tiffany first performed at a mall — the Paramus Park Mall in New Jersey, to be exact — skyrocketing her into the same pop music universe Debbie Gibson was on a mission to. The two celestial bodies collided, creating a fan-fueled rivalry that echoed the disdain between the Bloods and the Crips.
So who won the crown of the ultimate pop princess? Fast-forward nearly 30 years, and the two not only perform at ’80s-themed cruises, but they starred together in the SyFy original “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid” in 2011. I say that’s a tie, although back in the day, I would have taken a Sharpie to your Cabbage Patch Doll if you weren’t with Team Debbie.
