'F**k you': 80s star Tiffany loses it with audience during 'I Think We're Alone Now'
Tiffany was captured on camera angrily abusing concertgoers in the middle of performing her song, 'I Think We're Alone Now'
Tiffany started screaming obscenities at a group of spectators on Saturday. The 50-year-old singing sensation was captured on camera angrily abusing concertgoers at her gig in Lake Park, Florida, in the 1980s. The former teen star was in the middle of performing her greatest song, 1987's "I Think We're Alone Now," when she screamed at the audience for no apparent reason.
Tiffany, whose full name is Tiffany Renee Darwish, gained prominence as a teenager with her version of Tommy James and the Shondells' song I Think We're Alone Now in 1987. For two weeks in a row, the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Tiffany said into her microphone as she stood barefoot on stage, "F–k you, folks." The singer then slurred something inaudible before dropping another F-bomb. "This is my hit!" she said to the audience. "I'm going to sing it correctly!"
Tiffany then went into an ear-splitting and off-key chorus of the popular song. After being obtained by TMZ, video of the event has gone viral online, with viewers concerned by the performance. “When this song pops in my head it takes me back to a happy surrounding. Now WTF am I supposed to do?” one person said in the comments section of TMZ's YouTube video. “Wait, she had to been doing that on purpose….it was too weird to be real,” another commented.
Some viewers, on the other hand, sympathized with Tiffany. One user wrote, "I don't know how many times she's had to perform that blasted song...", while another one said, "She must despise it to the point of night terrors!" Tiffany's representative informed TMZ that the singer "lost her voice and became unhappy with her performance." "She failed to reach numerous notes during the concert," according to the website, "so it's possible that the crowd were heckling."
Saturday's performance was the final stop on her "Shadows" tour in the United States. In the last month, the singer has performed more than a dozen gigs around the country. Tiffany didn't openly address the topic on Instagram, but in a photo uploaded on Sunday, she hinted at some mischief. "Happy Sunday…” She added alongside a selfie, "hope you're all behaving."
She remarked of her early climb to prominence with Closer in 2020, 'Fame is a journey, and the highs and lows affect you no matter what age you enter it,'
