Today’s singer has sold over 50 million records worldwide. She has won awards at the Grammys, Emmys, Tonys, the New York's Outer Critics Circle, MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), Billboard Awards, and American Music Awards (AMAs). She is one of the few singers to win three of the four major American entertainment awards (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony).
Her quirky sense of style led to classmates bullying and throwing stones at her throughout high school, and she was eventually expelled, although she later earned her GED. Things took a turn for the worse when she left home at 17, to escape her abusive stepfather. Her journey took her to Canada, where she spent two weeks in the woods with her dog Sparkle, trying to find herself, all of which makes all of her later success all that much more impressive.
Today’s song is a love story brimming with the excitement of a new romance, and was the fourth single from her debut album, She's So Unusual.
What was SO unusual about the song was that it didn't have a music video; She was already huge on MTV thanks to her hit "Girls Just Want To Have Fun”, but even without a video, today’s song went to #5 in the US, proving that she was more than just a video star.
When the song reached #5 in the Hot 100, today’s singer became the first woman in the history of the chart to take four singles from the same album to the Top 5.
"Girls Just Want To Have Fun" - #2
"Time After Time" - #1
"She Bop" - #3
