She hit it BIG in the 80s when she was just a teen and she’s still singing, dancing and touring today!
But it was after photos from her latest concert series were released that Debbie Gibson decided to share with the world that she suffers from lyme disease!
Her announcement comes after fans began to speculate about her weight and appearance. It was all due to the disorder but many people began spreading rumors that Gibson had an eating disorder!
Debbie opened up about just how bad the comments got, saying:
Damn! At 40-years-old, Debbie Gibson STILL has a rockin' bod!
The singer showed off her tight tummy while performing alongside Tiffany at Chicago's House of Blues on Saturday night.
Both of the bubblegum pop princesses are in great shape as they continue their Journey Through the '80s national tour.
While discussing her overwhelming success at such a young age, Debbie said she "grew up in reverse" and shared:
"When you’re really young, you have no concept of what pressure or stress is. What do you have to lose at 16 if your song is not a hit? You’re not paying your own rent. There’s really nothing at stake in a way. It’s like a glorified hobby. On one hand, I had adult responsibilities, especially with touring where I was employing a hundred people by the time I was 18, but I didn’t know how to cook a meal or do laundry until I was like 25. I kind of grew up in reverse.”
We're glad you finally learned how to cook, gurl! It looks like you're making healthy food too because your body is AMAZING!

Debbie Gibson is looking fierce!
And she has her new boyfriend, Dr. Rutledge Taylor, to thank for her bod.
"I did my man's BTL diet, which stands for Better Than Lipo. It taught me to be mindful of what I eat and why and focuses on limiting sugar intake while eating lots of healthy fats and protein and veggies."
Sounds like a good plan!
"I've worked out and danced my entire life but often all that hard work's been covered up by layers of fat. The way we eat is the most important thing for weight loss and weight maintenance."
You're looking great Debbie. Keep it up!
