Debbie Gibson, the American singer-songwriter and actress, turns 40-years-old today. Gibson's career in entertainment took of when, at just 17, she became the youngest artist to write, produce, and perform a number-one single - she entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 1988 for her song 'Foolish Beat'. As well as being a record-breaking musician, Gibson has also appeared in a number of Broadway musicals, and a variety of independent films.
Despite recording the duet 'Say Goodbye' with Jordan Knight in 2006 - a song that peaked at number 24 in the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart - Gibson's most prominent recent work amounts to co-starring with LORENZO LAMAS in the low-budget adventure film 'Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus'. After the film's trailer became an Internet sensation in 2009 - getting over one-million hits - the movie was officially released in May of the same year.
Following on from the success of 'Megashark', Gibson is set to appear in a forthcoming original movie entitled, 'Mega Python vs Gatoroid', which is due to be released in 2011. The film - which also stars American singer Tiffany - will echo the action/sci-fi themes of 'Megashark'.
