As an admirer of Ms Lauper's since her ground breaking 80's "She's So Unusual", I was excited to see her Memoir come into existence. It seems there are few celebrities in our world like she. A person, who did her thing, and has done what she was called to do, and made a living doing so. The brillance of Ms Lauper, unlike Madonna, who I am a fan of for other reasons, is she is a more "human" celebrity. Instead of going with a "universal" trend, she did, and is doing her thing. I beleive she understands we are all celebrities, and are in this Universe to do what we are called to do.
I recently received her Memoir, and with the first couple of chapters, I am hooked. Especially with the "crazy" things she said or did in her younger years, and her response of "I think it scared" people, showing understanding herself, and not wanting to upset her fellow human beings. Or a classic line like "wow, look what God did to his son, Jesus, Now imagine what he's doing to do to me. I'm not even related."
She get's she is human, a celebrity, but nothing, and everything, special. I beleive she understands we all are. If only we could all think the same way!
I thoroughy recommend her Memoir.
