Former Teen Star Tiffany Defends Miley Cyrus’ “Sexy” Image

In her 80s heyday as a teen pop sensation, singer Tiffany favored acid-washed jeans, sneakers, long-sleeved shirts and not too much makeup.

But that doesn't mean that she disapproves of today's much less modest generation of singing teen stars — especially Miley Cyrus, 17, who has worn cleavage-bearing dresses and skin-tight bodysuits, danced on stripper poles and simulated lesbian kisses on stage.

"Miley Cyrus is on a great track," Tiffany, now 38, told UsMagazine.com at Saturday's EW Comic-Con party at Hotel Solamar in San Diego.

"I know that there are a lot of people that say well when you are so young you shouldn't be sexy," the "I Think We're Alone Now" singer conceded. 

"I think that in today's world you kind of have to be [sexy]– to be competitive in the market," Tiffany told Us.  "I think that she is doing  it appropriately.  And it's always a fine line there."

"But I'm a huge fan of hers. I think she's gonna have a long career," she gushed, adding praise to Cyrus' mom and dad, too. "Her parents are guiding her right, and it really matters what base you have around you.  Very much so."

Although Tiffany stayed buttoned up during her teenage fame, she did pose nude for Playboy in 2002. She has a 17-year-old son, Elijah, from her first marriage, and has been married to second husband Benn George since 2004.

The 80s icon is attending Comic Con to help promote Mega Python vs. Gatoroid — the campy scifi flick in which she costars with her former rival Debbie Gibson.

"It was awesome!" she said. "We were always planning on doing something but I think people were expecting more of a musical… and it's not."

Although she and Gibson achieved pop success around the same time, the flick was their first time to bond. "I knew her, but we never really hung out…we have a fond respect for each other but I didn't know if we would end up being buddies."

"It's really nice to be able to say we are really good friends.  Of course we always play up the cheeky side…we had the little catfight — we were loving it!"

档案:
In addition to scoring several big bubblegum pop hits in the late 80s, teen queen Tiffany also helped pave the way for the decades ultimate (and most successful) teenybopper band, the New Kids on the Block. Born Tiffany Renee Darwish on October 2, 1971, in Oklahoma, Tiffany began singing at an early age, but it wasnt the light pop style that she would eventually become known for. The young singer started off performing country & western songs, eventually getting discovered by country music veterans Hoyt and Mae Axton during the early 80s, while performing at a country nightclub in Los Angeles. For the next few years, Tiffany appeared on TV (including an appearance on Ed McMahons Star Search), continued to perform concerts (including opening a show for Jerry Lee Lewis and George Jones in Texas), and recorded several demos, in hope of landing a recording contract. In early 1986, Tiffany signed on with manager George Tobin, which would lead to problems later when it became known in that Tobin had absolute control over her career (since she was a minor at the time, Tiffanys mother signed for her, and later regretted having a divorce lawyer examine the papers instead of an entertainment lawyer). But Tobin did get the still-teenaged singer a recording contract with MCA, which issued Tiffanys self-titled debut in early 1987.
The album was promoted initially by a concert tour of U.S. malls, but it wasnt until later in the year that the album began to catch on with the young pop audience, when MTV and radio latched on to a cover of I Think Were Alone Now, which soon pushed the album to the number one spot on the Billboard album charts (and in less than year, was certified quadruple platinum). A follow-up single, Couldve Been, proved to be just as successful, as it peaked at the top spot of the Billboard singles chart. But despite Tiffanys runaway success, this period proved to be troubling personally, as her mother filed a missing persons report for the singer, while Tiffany in return filed for legal emancipation (although Tiffanys mother claimed to be concerned about Tobins exploitative treatment of Tiffany, Tiffany decided to stand by Tobins side). A cover of the Beatles I Saw Her Standing There (reworked as I Saw Him Standing There) proved to be Tiffanys last major hit, peaking at number seven in the spring of 1988, as the singer gave the opening spot on a U.S. tour to a then-unknown teeny band, the New Kids on the Block (supposedly after the group auditioned for Tiffany backstage one night prior to a show).
Tiffanys sophomore effort, 1988s Hold an Old Friends Hand, was another hit (earning platinum certification), but didnt match the success of its predecessor, as it signaled that her audience was shifting their focus to other similarly styled bands (namely the New Kids on the Block). When her third release, New Inside, sunk from sight almost immediately after its release in 1990, it was clear that Tiffanys 15 minutes were up, as she faded from the publics view. Despite her much lower profile, Tiffany continued to issue albums on a sporadic basis, including 1993s Dreams Never Die, 2000s The Color of Silence, and 2007s Just Me (while a collection, Greatest Hits, was released in 1996). Tiffanys public profile increased slightly around the dawn of the 21st century, as the singer was the subject of an episode of VH1s Behind the Music series (in which she disclosed a reconciliation with her mother) and, probably biggest of all, she posed for a 2002 issue of Playboy magazine.
