I have never been one to care about celebrity news, gossip or the like.
I didn't/don't care who is dating whom or even keep up on who's who.
If you mention a celebrity...chances are I have no clue who they are nor do I care.
I've always been this way...odd? Maybe.
I haven't watched T.V. in nearly 5 years because well honestly I find it obnoxious.
Today I watched T.V. (I think The Hot Guy is still in shock)
What caught my attention and actually made me sit on the sofa for nearly an hour?
An interview (and a few live songs) with Cyndi Lauper.
I swear I am not one of those star struck people but I will admit that in the 5th grade when I
saw Cyndi Lauper's first video on Mtv (they used to actually have music on there) I was awe struck!
This flame red haired, loudly dressed, wild makeup wearing woman with a voice that either annoyed or beckoned to humans. I thought she was as fabulous as the few other female musical rolemodels us 80's girls had. (Joan Jet, Anne & Nancy of Heart, Pat Benatar, Annie Lennox, Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders,
and Siouxsie Sioux of Siouxsie and the Banshees) But Cyndi was and is my I want to be like her when I grow up!
Beautiful in her way!
Never giving up on her dreams. Not even when they told her that her vocal cords were destroyed and she'd never sing again.
Cyndi Lauper is 57 years old now....I am 37 and while watching that show today I said to my Husband....I want to be like her when I grow up!
I guess in some ways I am a bit like her and I'm quite proud of that!
