ABSTRACT
The article profiles American singer Cyndi Lauper. Cyndi Lauper was often compared to her contemporary singer Madonna in 1983 and 1984, the years Lauper made her solo debut with "She's So Unusual" and Madonna released her first two discs. Lauper and Madonna presented two highly different versions of the female pop icon: one, a street-savvy Catholic-girl-gone-bad for whom sex and ambition went hand in hand; the other, a quirky, day-glo-haired rebel who combined pop divahood with a punky, new wave sensibility.
