In Her Own Timeless-80’s Words: Cyndi Lauper on people’s initial opinions of her
Cyndi Lauper is available on iTunes.
“They’ve always laughed at me. People have always said I couldn’t sing, always tried to label me. I ain’t worried about them, because the minute I open my mouth and sing, I can blow them right offa their chairs. They can’t take your talent away from ya. I am not a Broadway singer, and I am not a movie-TV person. I ain’t into that shit. I’m no dummy. I’m not a puppet And all the people that make fun of me, or call me a cartoon….They’re talkin’ outta their ass.”
Quote comes from the Kurt Loder interview for Rolling Stone (1984).
