Tiffany is the self-titled debut album by Tiffany, released in May, 1987 (see 1987 in music). Tiffany had begun working with manager/producer George Tobin several years earlier, with some of the tracks recorded as early as when she was 12 years old, in 1984; the album was released early in 1987. Her "shopping mall tour" was called "The Beautiful You: Celebrating The Good Life Shopping Mall Tour '87". Tiffany's tour included performances in various malls across the United States, at first to small, indifferent audiences, but by the end to large crowds as her fame grew. [1] The first single released from this album was "Danny", but radio stations decided instead to play Tiffany's cover of the Tommy James & the Shondells hit from 20 years earlier, "I Think We're Alone Now", and this was soon released as a single and became Tiffany's first #1 pop hit (U.S./U.K.). It was followed up by "Could've Been", which also reached #1 and was popular on the adult contemporary format as well. On the strength of these hit singles, the album went to the top spot of the Billboard album chart, (replacing Michael Jackson's "Bad"). Tiffany's rendition of the Lennon/McCartney standard 'I Saw Her Standing There' as "I Saw Him Standing There", provided a final hit from the album. Over 4.1 million copies have been sold in the U.S. alone. [2] Image File history File links Tiffany_-_Tiffany. ... A Studio Album is an album of regular studio recordings. ...

Later single releases from this album did not do as well, however, and critics, who called Tiffany a "manufactured pop star" from the beginning, already began to say that her newly-begun career was faltering, though it would be another year before her popularity underwent a complete collapse, and her platinum selling second album yielded some pop hits of its own before that.


Tiffany's life and career also hit some rough spots in the spring of 1988 due to a much-publicized battle between Tiffany, her mother, her stepfather, and her manager/producer, with many accusations made on all sides. Tiffany's mother, who had approved Tiffany's contract with George Tobin (as required because Tiffany was a minor at the time), had some regrets about doing so without consulting an entertainment attorney (she had only run the contract by a family attorney who was not an expert in entertainment law), and felt that Tobin was exploiting Tiffany through contract terms that gave him complete control of her career and 50% of the proceeds. Tiffany, on the other hand, was at the time siding with Tobin and felt her mother and stepfather were the ones acting in an exploitative manner. Ultimately, she asked a court to grant her emancipated minor status, but this was denied.[3][4][5][6] Emancipation of minors is a process that occurs when a court (or another body given that authority) declares that someone who is still a minor is nevertheless to have the legal rights of an adult, and to be free of any authority from their parent or other legal guardian. ...


In her 1988 summer concert tour, she gave a break to struggling pop group New Kids on the Block by letting them be her opening act, which helped them become a major teen craze, ultimately eclipsing Tiffany herself in popularity. New Kids On The Block (later NKOTB) was a successful boy band of the late 1980s and early 1990s. ...
