Known for changing her hair color ‘time after time,’ Cyndi Lauper is now also changing up her beauty routine. “I am 97 and I look fantastic!” joked Lauper, 57, to PEOPLE in N.Y.C. on Monday while raising AIDS awareness at God’s Love We Deliver, an organization that helps feed and improve the lives of people with serious illnesses like AIDS. Lauper, a spokesperson for the M.A.C AIDS Fund who appeared alongside Lady Gaga in M.A.C’s From Our Lips campaign, said that when she’s not sporting M.A.C’s bright red Viva Glam Cyndi LipGlass, she lives for beauty expert Tracie Martyn’s Firming Serum. “It heals your skin. It makes it soft. It makes it healthy,” said the singer. And what does Lauper do when she “just wants to have fun?” Yoga, of course. “Let me tell you how good yoga is. It is drop-dead good. It creates interior strength,” said the singer, who complements her yoga workouts with an all-organic diet and glasses of alkaline water. When in doubt, Lauper suggests heading to the drug store for one beauty product that never fails—cocoa butter. –Michael Gioia

im a long time fan and supporter of cyndi lauper, not just for her brilliance in music,but for her heart of of gold that spans around the world. yes,if possible that one can literally wrap their heart around the world and cradle it until all are healed,cyndi lauper can do it.
i’ve met her many times,the last at a meet and greet in miami,i’ve lost all 3 brothers,3 lovers,and recently in 2 months & 2 days i lost my grandma,dad and my so beloved & supportive ma. i had planned to kill myself after the meet and greet; all planned out. cyndi felt something deep within me,she hit it on the head. we spoke for a long while.made me look right into her eyes,at times grabbing my chin and said to me “no, you are not going to do this,things seem bleak now,but tomorrow will be better, you hold on and your going to promise me terence!”
cyndi saved my life and i will forever be great full to her,yes,life has gotten better in so many way. she made so much sense,i’ve lived 26+ years hiv+/a.i.d.s A symptomatic (rare case) and she said ya gonna throw that all the way,terence i met your ma before she died of lung cancer a kind woman what would that do to her if she new.
be strong and i want a follow up with you, she has reached out. cyndi genuinely cares about people, not just because of their fans because she has a great amount of respect for humanity.
i know cyndi will one day win the nobel peace prize for all the work she has,is doing and will do. she has worked endlessly on so many areas of a.i.d.s (benefits,research and fund raising) she has her true colors fund, she is currently building a residence for gay youths that have been tossed out on their butts because of the sexual orientation or gender, she has supported gay marriage, equal rights, human rights,womens rights and so many others too list.
cyndi has always been overlooked, underestimated and yet she doesnt thrive to have her great doing spot lighted. cyndi is one grade A classy broad. i love her and i thank her for sharing her musical, acting and humanitarian plights. she has made a better world with her word and step she takes forward.
sincerely,
terence torres

Thanks for your comment, Bert. I’m sorry if my post wasn’t clear I cneiatrly wasn’t assuming that all students under a certain age are comfortable with computers. As I mentioned at the beginning of my post, I teach technology, so most of my students are coming into my classes with some sort of predisposition to computers. That could be influencing my opinion to a certain extent but it’s been my experience that by and large (there are always exceptions) my students are now coming in armed with a certain level of knowledge and experience that simply wasn’t there a few years ago. This does change the way I need to approach teaching and while there are many things still to be taught in relationship to emerging technologies, like privacy issues, and business communications, there are many others that may need to be re-thought.
