Debbie Gibson Launches Cattle Call for Acting Camp/Reality Show
Remember Debbie Gibson? You know, the one whose many hits include "Only in my Dreams" and "Electric Youth"?
We do, but just barely.
Here is an update on Debbie Gibson. To start with, you now have to call her "Deborah."
Anyway, Debbie Gibson is conducting scholarship auditions and a reality show taping for her pet project Camp Electric Youth (keep your volume down unless you want an electric deja vu attack). This is her performing arts summer camp for kids between seven and 17.
"I was the Hannah Montana of the '80s and I have a lot of experience and knowledge to offer today's aspiring performers," Debbie says. (Yeah. Like "you're never too young to start a career in reality TV.")
We were pretty young in the '80s, but we wouldn't call Debbie the Hannah Montana of the decade. What does that make Tiffany -- Hillary Duff?
Debbie muses, "It seems like yesterday that 'Foolish Beat' was at the top of the charts worldwide."
No. It was years ago. Many, many years ago. Safely two decades behind us, along with hairstyles and outfits whose potential association with us will forever forbid us a career in politics.
If for some odd reason you'd like to put your child's hands into Debbie Gibson's care, email the audition guy Patrick at ElectricYouth08@aol.com. Don't forget to ask for an autograph -- but try to get her to use "Debbie" and dot her I with a heart. It's more retro that way.
