Bring On Deborah Gibson's Second Coming!

Just when you thought Deborah Gibson could never achieve artistic heights higher than her 2006 duet with Jordan Knight, along comes Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus, a straight-to-DVD flick starring the foxy popstress that's out on Tuesday!

Totally buying it!

Wouldn't it be great if the shark tried to bite of Debzy's nose, but out of the blue she got all Don Corleone on it and pulled out her Walther p22 and blew its eyes out? (Must mentally tuck that away for self-touch material later...)

Anyway, for those out there commenting that this isn't real, here's the IMBD entry for it. (I mean the movie. Not Debbie's boobs. Those are questionable.)

But while we're on the subject—and I literally had this conversation with two different people in the past week, kid you not—why has this broad never done a Cathy Dennis and started writing/producing hits for today's wet-behind-the-ears pop stars? Seriously, none of these young ho's can write a hook like Deborah was doing at 17 all on her own back in the day!

    Fuck me! Is this shit for real? Bad acting, bad F/X, bad everything!

    If I were Paul, I would hide in shame and never show my face again!

    hahahaha anon are you referring to me?! I never abandon my long time idols just because they made a few questionable acting decisions! Actually i watched the movie today - it was a lot of fun if you take it for what it is, a shlocky tongue in cheek campy horror. AMAZING! Why Deb hasn't taken off as a writer is beyond me - her unreleased tracks like Until You're All Mine and Some People are freaking gorgeous.

    Anonymous, I think they were going for camp, not an Academy Award.

    Paul, it's already queued at the top in my Netflix account! Hopefully this does for Debz what Muriel's Wedding did for ABBA!

    Debz's work as the Giant Octopus is her biggest triumph yet!

    omg this hilarious!! well to be honest, deborah's more recent material sounds rather dated. i don't think she has quite evolved with the pop sensibility that cathy dennis has.

    Paul, don't kill me!!! :p
