She began playing the ukulele and taking piano lessons soon after, especially with the American pianist Morton Estrin. Gibson said her house was probably the only one where you would hear the children compete at the piano time.
In 1987, while running through the U.S. sites nightclub, Gibson was recording what would become her debut album “Out Of The Blue”. The album was recorded in four weeks. Four singles from Out Of The Blue reached the Top 5 of Billboard Top 100 “only in my dreams,” “Shake Your Love,” “Out Of The Blue,” and the # 1 hit “Foolish Beat” and “Staying Together, which has performed more modestly, reaching # 22. “Foolish Beat” set a record for Gibson, making her (17), the youngest artist to write, produce and perform a Billboard # 1 single, such that ‘appears in the Guinness Book of Records World 1988, and remains the youngest female artist to compose, record, and perform a No. 1 single to date.

After separation from the company EMI, Gibson formed her own label, Espiritu, the release of her original material. His sixth album, Deborah, marked her full return to the dance-pop. Deborah understands the words “only”. First single “Only Words” (Dance Edition) became a Top 40 Hot Dance Music / Club Play hit. The album is the only other ballad, “Naturally.” Deborah has been well received and remains respected, even if it only sold 20,000 in the United States.
In 2001, Gibson released her seventh album on her label, so new, the golden eggs, called MYOB (Mind Your Own Business AKA). He has three singles, the sensual pop song “What You Want”, the song-infused Latin Dance-pop “Your Secret” and the bass heavy “MYOB” Highlights of the album include the sultry Latin flavored song Smooth Jazz “In Blue”, her vintage style ballad “Wishing You Were Here”, “Jaded” and a remix of “MYOB” His only MYOB had the chorus of her two nieces.
In 2005, Gibson co-wrote and recorded a song called “Someone You Love” with brothers O’Neill. With the brothers O’Neill, Gibson has released an update; acoustic version of her former No. 1 hit “Lost in Your Eyes.” There was a PBS special in late 2005 and has been nominated for Emmy February 2006.
Over the years, Gibson has been the subject of stalkers. Robert Bardo, who was convicted for the murder of actress Rebecca Schaeffer in 1989, was a wall in her house decorated with photos of Gibson and Tiffany. In May 1998, Michael Falkner, a fan unhappy with Eau Claire, Wis., was arrested outside Manhattan’s Palace Theater, where Gibson played in the musical adaptation of the live Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. This was after Gibson received threatening letters, emails and faxes Falkner, who used “Starcade” Alias. On April 15, 2008, Gibson filed an injunction against puigdollers Bassas Jorge, a member of the club Fans of Spain who had been stalking him have since 2002. However, the court did not issue a temporary order and a hearing date has been set to determine whether a prohibition order was appropriate in the matter. The proceeding was dismissed when Gibson failed to appear at the courthouse for the hearing to present her case.
Gibson has dated actor Chris Bruno, Jonathan Kanterman, and is currently in a relationship with Dr. Rutledge Taylor.
There was a time when Debbie Gibson was the squeaky-clean version of the 80 Miley Cyrus today, but today’s young people know her best for her 2005 Play boy Pictorial. Oops? If there is a way of trying to restore an almost nonexistent public opinion is … Saturday night a weird science fiction movie. We guess.
On Saturday, Gibson appeared alongside pop star rival by 80 Tiffany in the TV movie “Mega Gatoroid vs. Python” on SyFy. Gibson was an animal rights activist and sxy Tiffany has played a park ranger sxy … yes, they both looked like they were headed for the Halloween party in “Mean Girls”.
While movies of the week SyFy tend to fall into the “so bad it’s good, it can only have been bad. The unsubtle nod to the rivalry of twenty-five years, would could be cute one or two decades ago, but now it’s really, really, really old news.
