There's no one quite like Cyndi Lauper , that's for sure. The pop icon turned the eighties on its head with her anthems of feminine empowerment, one of the first pillars of an MTV generation that would come to be defined by bright colors, loud music, and a “we're not gonna take it” attitude, Twisted Sister -related or otherwise. She became a music legend exactly for those ideals, and even after forty years in the business, she isn't going anywhere any time soon, continuing to be the bombastic sensation that proved that “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” Now, forty years after her debut album hit the charts, she's headed to the silver screen for Prime Video's newest project, The Horror of Dolores Roach . A Sweeney Todd -inspired tale of love, revenge, and accidental cannibalism, the series is one of a number that Lauper's participated in over the years, on a resume that also includes The Simpsons , Bones , and Magnum P.I. Lauper is one of a host of zany characters that populate the series, a private investigator who moonlights as a Broadway usher because it's her “passion”. (Do I smell a Kinky Boots reference? Or is that just the empanadas?) She's easily the highlight of the series, alongside star Justina Machado , and never loses her unique, iconic spark for a second. In this interview, we broke down how she got involved in The Horror of Dolores Roach , and what motivates her to take the various acting roles she's dabbled in over the years. She also explained her process for writing original music for the show, and lavished immense praise on the show's creative team, including showrunner Aaron Mark .
