’80s Pop Star Tiffany Returns to Country Music With ‘Rose Tattoo’
’80s pop singer Tiffany, who you may remember touring malls at the age of 16 in support of her hit cover of ‘I Think We’re Alone Now,’ is venturing back into the country music realm with her twangy new album, ‘Rose Tattoo.’
Yes, we said “back.” Tiffany, who recently made headlines recently by accidentally and apologetically outing her former boyfriend, NKOTB member Jonathan Knight, is in fact making a return to country music. ‘Rose Tattoo’ isn’t a left turn for the singer, whose roots are firmly planted in country music. In fact, she made her debut as a vocalist in 1981 at the age of 10 by singing with country star Jack Reeves in California.
Tiffany told OK Magazine that ‘Rose Tattoo’ sounds like “Bonnie Raitt with a Stevie Ray Vaughan vibe. Musically, I’m diverse now from the group. I’ve winged off into something I’ve wanted to do for 15 years. I’m a rocker at heart. I love country music, started in country music. I’m really just going back to my roots.”
Those roots she speaks of include a performance as a pre-teen on the ‘Ralph Emery Show,’ where she sang ‘Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad’ by Tammy Wynette. The new album, which certainly nods deftly to Tiff’s past, was recorded in Nashville, where she currently resides along with her son and husband.
Currently, Tiffany is traveling down many different creative roads career-wise. She recently starred in an original SyFy Channel monster movie, the gloriously titled and hilariously campy ‘Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid’ alongside fellow ’80s diva Debbie Gibson.
