80’s nostalgia is big business. That’s why it comes as no surprise that former teen idol Tiffany is still touring. The singer is best known for her hit tune “I Think We’re Alone Now,” a cover of a 1967 song by Tommy James and the Shondells.
In 1987, the song was inescapable as then-fifteen-year-old Tiffany embarked on a nationwide shopping mall tour to promote the track and her album. At a recent gig in Melbourne, Florida, Tiffany struggled to nail her famous hit. TMZ reported that she was forgetting words and having trouble with pitch.
After flubbing some lyrics near the end of the song, Tiffany addressed the audience. It’s unknown why she lashed out at them. It’s possible they were heckling her because of her poor performance.
“F*ck you guys… [Unintelligible]. This is my hit. I’m the singer, right.”
She then tried to sing several high notes that she failed to hit as the song continued. Tiffany’s voice sounded raspy and strained throughout. The concert ended shortly after as her vocal issues wore on.
The crowd tried to encourage Tiffany, singing along to the words she was missing. She gave it her all, but frustration won the day. Hopefully everything is alright, as she was acting quite strange during the performance.
Tiffany’s version of “I Think We’re Alone Now” spent two weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100. It was the biggest hit of her career. Her camp has not responded to requests for comment on the incident.
