Cyndi Lauper

Trivia and Quotes

Quotes (6)

  • Cyndi: It is not a dirty word, "feminism." I just think that women belong in the human population with the same rights as everybody else. ... The problem is, "A feminist looks like this, or is like that." We are taught not to like ourselves as women, we are taught what we're supposed to look like, what our measurements are supposed to be. I never hear what measurements men are supposed to be. Just women.

  • Cyndi: Sometimes my mind boggles. It's so deep my mind actually boggles.

  • Cyndi: Humour is a great vehicle for getting a message across. If you get too serious, you could die of starch.

  • Cyndi: I get the greatest feeling when I'm singing. It's other-worldly. Your feet are anchored into the Earth and into this energy force that comes up through your feet and goes up the top of your head and maybe you're holding hands with the angels or the stars, I have no idea.

  • Cyndi: When I sing I don't feel like it's me. I feel I am fabulous, like I'm 10 feet tall. I am the greatest. I am the strongest. I am Samson. I'm whoever I want to be.

  • Cyndi: Somebody did complain to me and tell me that my clothes were so loud they couldn't hear me sing.
