Interesting Quotes By and About Tiffany
Various Tiffany-related quotes, including the good, the bad, and the ugly.
"Dave Henson of Bloomington, Ill., among the demographics being hit, said he
was listening to the music 'because it was so loud.' Henson, 24, in the mall
to replace a pair of shorts lost in Yellowstone National Park, inclines
musically to U2. He noted that Tiffany was cute and he was vaguely intrigued,
though he added, 'After 20 minutes in the mall my brain turns to mush.'"
"She's sincere and seems to have great love for the people... And it was very
clean, not low-cut and trashy like Madonna."
"She's the next Barbra Streisand. I'm serious."
"It was a great idea. After the shows I'd talk with people. When I left, I
felt as if we were friends. I also got to shop a lot, which is my favorite
thing in the whole world."
"My contract with Tiffany is a perfectly normal agreement. Ask any
entertainment attorney. It's a production deal. I absolutely do not want a
bigger share of her money. I'm entitled to what my contract calls for. It
was approved by a judge, by attorneys, by everyone down the line as fair and
"She's going to be around for a long, long time. She's going to have a long
career. The whole trip with Tiffany is that she's real. It's going to last.
We've built a fan base of support, and now that we're solidifying it, I'm sure
that you'll be writing about her many, many times in the future."
"I was enthralled by her voice. It was like taffy-- you could pull it
anywhere. In under ten minutes, I decided to sign her. I had a dream of
where she could go. When I do a project, I get totally immersed in it. I got
really obsessed with her. I just kept thinking that I had to do something
"It could be confusing to her audience. What's a thirteen-year-old girl going
to think of Tiffany if she's playing a psycho? Besides, there's a lot more
money in being a recording star."
"When I was about two, they even started making Tiffany lamps and even Tiffany
rugs. They even started making Tiffany jewelry. I guess it's just a name
that got really popular."
"It was embarrassing at first. People were laughing and giving me weird
"Tiffany is convincing in the role of a solid kid who knows the location of
her heart and her vagina."
"She's a trend setter, not a trend follower. She wears black in August and
there'll be 15,000 girls who decide: 'You know what? Black ain't so bad in
"Hey, listen, there's some guys singing a Tiffany song!"
"And while it's not saying a lot to say that [Candy Pennella, of the Canadian
group Candi] has more soul than Tiffany or Debbie [Gibson]-- Margaret Thatcher
has more soul than Tiffany or Debbie-- Pennella shows a beyond-her-years
understanding of rhythmic subtleties."
"The new record is full of the same brand of synthesizer-heavy teen pop, with
all hands trying to fill in the massive holes left by The Tiff's weak
warble.... The little girls may understand, but once they grow up a little,
they're going to drop their old friend's hand and run."
"Do I look like a bimbo to you?... Can I put words together? Am I a wind-up
doll? Am I stupid? So I come from Norwalk? OK, so it's not Beverly Hills,
but it's not the slums, either. Does that make me a bimbo? Of course not.
It's important that people don't see me as this stupid, shallow person."
"The problem was that Tiffany's punch knocked the wind out of her
predominantly pre-teen audience. Instead of whooping it up while she rolled
through 'Oh Jackie' and 'We're Both Thinking Of Her' from the second of her
two platinum albums, most of the fans remained inert in their seats.
Averaging little more than half the singer's age, Tiffany's core crowd is
probably not ready for rough and tough stuff yet.... Tiffany as bar rocker
might not be such a bad idea, especially because those opening songs showed
that she has some instinct for it. The 9-year-olds may not be able to get
through a gin-mill door, but the singer just might learn things about
performing that she never will in a gilded cage... How about it, Tiff: Go to
college, start a pick-up band. It's a time-honored tradition, and you'll get
a nice respite from being picked on by old-fogy pop critics."
"Sure, you're a cynic; but you still can't help feeling a little thrilled by
it all. She doesn't write her own songs? So what! Her answers to your
questions sound suspiciously, well, canned? Big deal! There don't seem to be
any interesting little nooks and crannies left in her prepackaged persona?
Deep down, do you really care? Fact is, Tiffany's nice, with a shy, gentle
smile, great Irish-setter colored hair and warm brown eyes... someone, you
think, you might have been friends with in high school... She's so, like,
symbolic. In a way, she's the American girl's answer to Princess Di-- only,
you can't help thinking, just a little bit sweeter."
"George Tobin is what we musicians refer to as a 'weasel.' It is in the
weasel's genetic makeup to pounce on as many mice as it can eat, and I guess
Tiffany was the juiciest mouse out there."
"She's like a sister to us. We all think she's really pretty and talented,
and we love her like she's a memeber of our family. I think she feel that way
about us too."
"I adore them, too! They are just the nicest guys. We're all about the same
age, so we'd have fun just talking about kid things. I know a lot of girls
would love to have been in my shoes."
"I was scared. We got out of Hong Kong the day before they had all the
rioting, so had we left any later we wouldn't have been able to get out of the
airport. We would have been stuck there. Some people were really cool about
it but some people who came to interview me kept bringing it up. That's all
they wanted to ask, 'How do you feel about what's happening? Are you
supporting the students? Are you against them?' My remark was that I'm a
student and I sympathize with them, but I'm not a politician. I'm here to
make music. It was a pretty frightening time. We were constantly in touch
with the American Embassy asking them what the situation was."
"If you agree with the corporate wisdom that dictated that longtime Judy
Jetson voice Janet Waldo be replaced by a teenybopper singer, then THE JETSONS
MOVIE is the film for you."
"Talk about Tiffany should be moved to alt.trash. Singers like her are a dime
a dozen at any studio with decent backing musicians."
"I hope that Tiffany would not be involved with those punks. I love her music
and can not imagine her with those punks."
"Needless to say, such an American looks forward to a long and happy life of
scarfing down Gummi Bears and bopping along with Tiffany albums, but if little
Jason next door... comes through the bedroom window with a spear gun, this is
all for naught. Even worse, this isn't FAIR."
"On another note, as much as I hate to say it, I have the dread feeling that
Tiffany (*GAG* again) is going to with us for a long time. Even I have to
admit she has a strong voice. (Somebody just needs to slap the 'Perkyness' out
"Tiff's a great girl, but we are not dating. We're friends, so I don't know
how that rumor started."
"There is one fascinating fantasy sequence set to a pop tune sung by pop star
Tiffany; a kaleidoscopic series of images that include flash-by allusions to
Picasso, Klee, Warhol and O'Keefe, among other artists. The sequence stands
out partly because it is so imaginative compared with the usual prosaic Hanna-
"Teen diva shrugs off dated sound of former svengali George Tobin and dons
an astonishingly potent funk-pop dress, tailored with assured and assertive
vocals. Bodes well for the forthcoming album of the same name."
"...she now sounds tough and street smart; she can wail with a vocal strength
she never demonstrated before. But the plaintive, even troubled undercurrent
in her voice, which was the best thing about her teen pop, mostly gets buried
under a barrage of synthesizer effects. The result is an album without much
personality -- except when Tiffany pours on the passion and nearly goes
through the emotional roof, stopping just short of frenzy. It's nice to know
she can do that. But she'd be much more impressive if she did it in classier
"Tiffany has a knack for attracting weirdos."
"My real tragedy in life was not getting hired to do Jetsons,
The Movie. Because I've wanted to work with Tiffany
for so many years...and wouldn't you know it, Hollywood
can't come up with a project for both of us.
Because God knows, the public has been screaming
for a Gottfried/Tiffany project for the longest time
"I'm not searching any longer. It's not manufactured. I hope the album
surprises those who didn't necessarily care for my music before --
pleasantly surprises them, that is."
"We played 'Open Your Eyes,' and the response was incredible. While none of
our listeners guessed that it was Tiffany, they did want to know who it was
so they could go and purchase it."
