TIFFANY ALL GROWN UP

FROM BAT T L ING GIANT PY THONS TO POSING FOR P LAYBOY, THERE’S BEEN MUCH MOR E TO TI FFANY’S CAREER THAN THE CHART-TOPPER, I THINK WE’RE ALONE NOW. THE CAL I FORNIAN SINGER TALKS TO CLASSI C POP ABOUT H ER NEW ROCK SOUND AND EVOLUT ION FROM TEENAGE SENSAT ION TO AN ENTERTAINER WHO IS COMFORTABL E IN HER OWN SKIN.

Iknow there are people who only know me for I Think We’re Alone Now,” says Tiffany, the bubbly Californian who topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic with the song as a teenager. “I’m not offended by that, but there’s so much more that I’ve accomplished and I just want the opportunity to show that.”

I spend most of my time on the road and we extend songs anyway. We really take them to the next level. So why not do that on an album?” Tiffany’s new album, which is currently untitled but due for release this summer, is the latest in a series of projects that has seen her explore a wide range of musical styles. In 2000, she released the distinctly darker and more grownup- sounding album The Color Of Silence, which Billboard called: “Tiffany’s equivalent of Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill.”
