James Corden and Cyndi Lauper Join Forces for Awesome Spoof

80s pop star Cyndi Lauper recently made her late night talk show rounds by appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden. This comes in the nick of time because the songstress is in full promo mode for the release of her brand new album Detour. During her visit to the show, Lauper performed an educational yet entertaining duet with the show’s host James Corden. A remixed rendition of her popular anthem, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” which was everyone’s jam back in the day! (C’mon, you definitely can’t deny this).

However, the dynamic duo sang an awesome spoof of the original hit with a unique twist called, “Girls Just Want Equal Funds.” Boom! Both celebs donned pink wigs, all black attire, and belted out meaningful lyrics such as “Guys, if she’s mad, it’s not PMS / It’s ’cause you do the same job and she’s makin’ less / Don’t need more Midol, [just] more income / ‘Cause girls, they want equal funds / Oh, girls they want equal funds.”

Now that’s how you make a comeback, way to go Cyndi Lauper! She joins the growing list of Hollywood A-listers who have also voiced their concerns about gender equality including Jada Pinkett-Smith, Jennifer Lawrence, Patricia Arquette, Lupita Nyong’o, and Charlize Theron.
