Chats with
Singer/Songwriter Deborah Gibson

On her appearance on NBC's Weekend Today and her new album "M.Y.O.B"




April 6, 2001

MSNBC-Will: Ok, I have singer/songwriter Deborah Gibson here with me. Welcome Deborah.

Question from Tommy Huelsman: Deb, the new CD is outstanding. What are your hopes for it?

Deborah Gibson: Basically my biggest hope it to tour with it because I have big ideas for performing live. And basically, as with everything I release, I just hope that this music reaches the people its meant to reach and to affect in a positive way.

MSNBC-Will: Are you going the Mtv route?

Deborah Gibson: I am going the Mtv route in terms of wanting to reach the younger audience who may not know me from my past recordings. But at the same time I always acknowledge that I am 30 years old, so I won't adjust who I am or what I do to fit the Mtv format. It would be great to reach so many people that they basically force Mtv into not being able to ignore me. LOL!

Question from Donna: Will you be doing a concert tour of MYOB? I love the new album!!

Deborah Gibson: Thank you for the compliment. :) I am planning on promoting through the summer, and at that point I'd like to think about touring. But I will be doing one-off performances in conjunction with radio stations around the country and TV performances such as the Weekend Today show which is tomorrow.

MSNBC-Will: Any idea of where you'll be touring? We'll be here all day if we take all the "come to my town" questions.

Deborah Gibson: No definite tour plans yet. To keep updated on appearances, concerts, etc log onto

Question from larry_barr1: can you ask deborah what is it like being in cinderella?
Question from NJTheater: my fav was Beauty - would love to see her do Cabaret

Deborah Gibson: There were actually inquiries from the Cabaret camp, and I would love to play Sally Bowles some day. Touring with Cinderella was a blast. Ertha Kit is an amazing woman to work with. Thank you for the compliment on Beauty and the Beast. :)

Question from Michael Chow: A lot of people have made and are still making a big deal of calling you Deborah instead of Debbie. Why do you think people get fixated on your name?

Deborah Gibson: That's a good question LOL! But I plan on spending more time in this business as Deborah then I did as Debbie, so eventually that fixation will have to wear off.

Question from Lauren Messinger: Dear Deborah: I have followed your career and absolutely love your voice. My family & I saw you in Beauty & the Beast on Broadway and we all thought you were magnificent. I'm 15 years old and last week I finished 8 hours of recording sessions and am in the process of mixing my first demo. I have performed the National Anthem at many large area venues in the NY/NJ/PA area and have been very well received. Would you have any advice for a determined & dedicated young singer like myself? I honestly believe I was born to sing. Thank you and keep up all the great work that I admire.

Deborah Gibson: Well, you don't seem to need my advice because you have the key ingredient which is determination. You are definitely on the right track as far as recording a demo is concerned. But realize that it took me 4 years of demo-ing over 100 songs to get my first deal. Good luck to you :)

Question from Ivanaldo Pereira: Hi Deborah! I'm Brasilian and I want to know: - What you think about Brazil, and when you come to here? ..Ivanaldo Pereira - Recife - Pernambuco - Brazil

MSNBC-Will: We have others from Canada and Australia...any thoughts on the international scene?

Deborah Gibson: I love traveling overseas and find it amazing that music transcends language barriers, time changes, etc. Some of my favorite places to tour have been Japan and Australia. I have only been to Australia once, so I would put that high on my list of places I would like to re-visit.

MSNBC-Will: Is your album available all over the world?

Deborah Gibson: No, not yet.

Question from Yasmin: You're older now, how do you define 'sexy' ??

Deborah Gibson: I think that being sexy means being comfortable in your own skin and carrying yourself with confidence. I definitely don't think it's about clothing or showing skin.

Question from Tom_K_: I would also like to know why she has not pushed her last few albums as much as this one? I think all have been great albums! And they did not get enough recognition.

Deborah Gibson: I put the same amount of energy into everything I release, but sometimes the public is simply not ready to embrace a particular style of music at any given time. It seems as if the kind of music I'm making right now truly fits in with what's going on in the current pop scene.

MSNBC-Will: Any thoughts on the current pop scene?

Deborah Gibson: I'm very happy to see that pop music is getting a lot of recognition and respect at the Grammies. That's something that wasn't really happening when I first started recording. I really enjoy a lot of the younger solo female artists like Britney, Christina, Jessica, etc.
Probably my favorite, vocally, is Lee Ann Rimes. I must say, however, I am a bit over the exposure that fabricated pop groups are getting. I think it gives kids a false sense of what the business really is like, and it makes it seem as if it's all as easy as showing up for an audition. 99% of the time it is a lot harder than that.

Question from cambell muirhead: hi deborah. usually just when your on the brink of big success again another musical comes along and all focus for promotion and tv interviews etc seem to take back stage. what are your plans as in world domination again for your music

Deborah Gibson: Yes, it seems as if there's a point at which for several different reasons I do shift my focus. One reason is my sanity. LOL! because theater gives me some consistency in my life and I feel that that has to take precedence over promoting and album. That is a personal decision I stand by. But... I never say never in terms of going back into a musical if it is a dream role that I can't resist or if it compliments what I am doing as a recording artist.

Question from Andrew S.: What are some of the advnatages and disadvantages of recording under your own label, Golden Egg Records? Also, whatever happened to Espiritu Records?

Question from Renee: I also wanna ask why she went from Espiritu to golden Egg

Question from musicgirl23: Was it just a name change, or a totally new company?

Deborah Gibson: It simply is a name change and it happened for business/political reasons. I came up with the name "Golden Egg" because it is a feeling shared by both my mom and myself that we are "sitting on the golden egg, waiting for it to hatch." I really feel that when people are exposed to this music, it will have a strong effect on them.
In terms of advantages and disadvantages of having your own label, the biggest advantage is creative control, and not getting lost in the shuffle of a big machine.
The disadvantages are things like not being able to trade favors to get radio play, not being able to piggy-back promotion with other known artists, etc.

Question from Dave from Daytona Beach, FL: Deborah: Your songwriting skills are amazing. Each album you release contains many tunes that can be considered "the hit that never was." Would you or do you write songs for other artists? I surely hope that M.Y.O.B. re-establishes you on the pop scene, not only as an entertainer, but as a songwriter.

Deborah Gibson: Yes I do, and I would, but currently I'm focused on re-establishing myself.

Question from Angie_P: anyone know what song she will sing tomorrow?

Deborah Gibson: I will be singing MYOB with 6 dancers and 11 children including 4 double-dutch jumpropers and certain markets will air a performance of "Down That Road." Depending on the size of the crowd, I will be performing a third song, which has yet to be decided, so please come on down in person to show your love! LOL!!!

MSNBC-Will: That's Rockefeller Center... 8:30am ET

Deborah Gibson: The pre-taped interview piece will be airing at 7:30am

Question from larry_barr: can you ask deborah what does she do in her free time?

Deborah Gibson: This is actually kind of funny. I am sitting here right now during my free half hour of the day getting a manicure while chatting with all of you. LOL! Basically I do like to do those girly things that involve pampering myself. Also, I have 2 dogs and a cat who take up a lot of my time and, I'm a big movie and theater buff. The last theatrical production I saw was just last week. I saw the show "Bat Boy" at the Union Square theater, and it was a blast. I would have to say that that is my favorite thing to do in my free time, see musicals.

Question from Lillian: Where or on what albums would I be able to find songs like "The Most Beautiful Love Songs" and "Without You"?? I really love those songs!!

Deborah Gibson: Those are B sides. “Without You” was an extra track on a Japanese import.

Question from musicgirl23: Can you just tell her thank you for me? She inspired me to stay in music, and I am on the way to being signed by a company? Please?

Deborah Gibson: Excellent! Look forward to hearing your music. :)

MSNBC-Will: Thank you very much Deborah for chatting with us in your free half hour :)

Deborah Gibson: Thank you all for the great questions. Sorry we couldn't get to answer all of them. I will see you all tomorrow either live at Rockefeller Plaza, or in your living room. :)
If anyone gives you unsolicited opinions. remember to tell them to "MYOB" :)

Pendragon-guest: don't forget about the BtL newsletters.. i liked it better than DGIF, except no pics..
MikeyMike97-guest: when i chatted with deborah over the radio, i gave her a hard time about not going to my wedding.
mscasper-guest: People are so evil.
DraedenWitch-guest: 6I have buttloads of stuff.. the perfume, the mags, cassette singles. My ex threw it all out.. :(

MikeyMike97-guest: i told deborah that the only other celebs i invited were the pope and bill and least they had the decency to show up! :D the djs gave her a hard time too
