Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Sir John Major (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Chanel Iman and Tomáš Tatar. In that special week of December people in US were listening to I'm Your Baby Tonight by Whitney Houston. In UK Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice was in the top 5 hits. Edward Scissorhands, directed by Tim Burton, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Under Siege by Stephen Coonts was one of the best selling books.
