Cyndi Lauper, Wrestling to live down that image
In this corner, sleekly clad in sparkles, spandex or tough-cookie leather - your typical Top-40 female. And in the opposite corner, chaotically coifed and dressed in the overflow of the nearest dumpster - Cyndi Lauper. One merely cuffs the ears with programmed punches, a synthesized songbird. The other aims for the heart, with an animal sound that suggests she's the real macaw.
What's the worst career move Cyndi Lauper ever made? Far worse than the lengthy delays between albums.
