Cyndi Lauper Wrote a Memoir

Cyndi Lauper stopped by to share stories from her new book, 'Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir': On Jeff Goldblum's rude 'Vibes' behavior: "I [usually] don't care if you don't like me. Who cares? On a movie set, It sucks. It hurt my feelings no matter what." On leaving her (abusive) childhood home at 17: "I was packing since I was 14." On Tommy Mottola: "He's very nice unless you're in a business [of], like, who's going to be the most powerful." ...and music industry professionals in general: "To them, it's disposable art. To you, it's living art." On dancing topless to support her passion: "My band would always be like, 'You know, you can do this and make a lot of money.'" Before she left, Cyndi said she didn't feel any animosity toward those who'd stood in her way--they've only helped her connect with audiences: "I have a real understanding of what people go through. … Life punishes you." Howard thanked her, saying he that knew all too well: "Look at my face."
