Cyndi Lauper- A bit of negative press

cynd.jpgIt is not often I see anything negative about Cyndi so I thought Id post this. It is from Express Gay News. I really think that Dish should give her a break! Here is the quote:

“Also in attendance and dancing happily was gay icon CYNDI LAUPER. Although she bopped in the DJ booth, she wasn’t quite so nice when she was out in the crowd.

When Dish came by, bowing and scraping and expressing endless love, Lauper told us that she “didn’t want to be bothered.” Oh, excuse Dish. How ridiculous of us to expect that a gay icon attending a gay dance party might find herself the subject of some queer adoration.

We’ll remember that you don’t want to be bothered the next time we’re asked to shell out big bucks for one of your concert tours, Cyndi.”

Cyndi Lauper Re-issues campaign

c41lbbcaah8zeicam80dm0caqf5hpnca5fi97qcaxz3zofcaszgyx8casrwe8tcaif2zfoca8sffcaca94og9scaqc8h8ycatx1e1nca8ceq0pcakryfnacafoyvebcawslmkvcafm2ktrcacma03rca21mpot.jpgCyndi Lauper UK have launched a fabulous re-issue campaign. Please read below and sign the petition. It would be great to have these works re-issued!

“Throughout the years Cyndi Lauper has released many wonderful singles, albums and videos. In 2008 Cyndi Lauper will release a brand new album - Savoir Faire. It is also Cyndi Lauper’s 25th Anniversary in the music industry as a solo artist. To help celebrate this anniversary we are starting a Re-Issues Campaign.

Cyndi still has a huge fanbase all over the world and now it is time for her classic albums to receive the re-issue treatment. A complete DVD of all Cyndi Lauper’s videos is also long over due.

Many fans source these long lost gems through the internet paying huge amounts of money for bad bootleg copies. Profits do not go to Cyndi Lauper or her team.

The Cyndi Lauper Re-Issue Campaign is an effort to have the first 3 recordings that Cyndi Lauper released on the Portrait & Epic labels re-issued in CD format with extra tracks internationally. Many fans feel that this period was the peak of Lauper’s career and abilities. In addition to re-issuing Cyndi Lauper’s CDs, we are campaigning for the release of a DVD Collection containing all her videos including those that have never been released before on any format.

Unfortunately, Portrait / Epic (now a member of the Sony / BMG family) have left most of their Cyndi Lauper library to gather dust in the vaults. We hope to show that there is still a great demand for these works.

Please show your support for the re-issues campaign by signing the petition or by adding your comments below. Come on, do it now!”
