The past few weeks have been extremely good for pop music divas and it's been hard to keep up! Cher has returned, Madonna is releasing a new documentary, and Cyndi Lauper won a Tony for writing music in the Broadway smash, Kinky Boots.
Though Lauper had a relatively brief period as pop hitmaker, she has lead a diverse and interesting career that includes her experimentation with many musical genres and performance projects. Not to mention, her Tony is yet another statue she can place next to her Grammy and Emmy. She has been an individual following her own creative bliss and remained interesting as a singer/songwriter, gay rights activist, and actress.
To praise her accomplishments, here are some music videos to celebrate her diverse career, which has also included forays into pop, standards, dance music, and the blues.
