Direct from the deepest, darkest recesses of the Pop Culture Institute's 'Whatever Happened To' file, it's birthday baby Stacey Q, with her monster hit from 1986, Two of Hearts...
True, she had more success portraying Cinnamon on the sitcom The Facts of Life than she did as a recording artist, but in this instance we must always remember the maxim, first postulated by George Burns: show business is a hideous bitch goddess.
Still, the lady herself seemed sweet enough; if only her career hadn't gotten caught in the cross-fire of recording industry politics - a proposed sitcom deal following her highly successful appearances opposite Mrs. Garrett's gang was nixed by the label, citing the negative effect it could have on her career. Shortly thereafter, she faded from the public eye, and was never heard from again...
Another victory for the record executives!
