Cyndi Lauper was the 80’s golden girl with her biggest hit “Girls just want to have fun”. But recently Cyndi was spotted looking like she just had a cosmetic procdure and was in the healing phase. But according to her publicist, recent pictures of Cyndi Lauper looking like a burn victim are not evidence of a chemical peel, but an allergic reaction to a spa treatment. The singer, whose face in the photos is blotched and swollen pink, rushed off into a limo quickly after arriving at LAX.
In the age of high definition cameras and video, the pressure to look younger weighs heavy, only surmounted by the pressure to deny one’s own vanity. People will go to great lengths to look young and greater lengths to lie about it. They will douse their face in acid and tell you it’s a sunburn. Or in the case of Cyndi Lauper, a spa treatment.
The before picture is from Cyndi from a few days before she was spotted with the burns at an opening for a double decker bus with her likeness on it. At the opening she spoke about young pop star Lady Gaga, who she collaborated with for an advertising campaign for make-up giants MAC. Cyndi, who has been nominated for her 14th Grammy this year, said: ‘I think she’s done a lot of great stuff and I wish her a lot of luck. I think the new artists; the work hard. It’s the same like everybody.I’m glad to see that people care and are passionate about their work and she combines art and music. I always like that.’
For Cyndi’s sake we hope her face heals soon and she looks better than ever. Do you believe it was a spa mistake, or do you think she had a peel done?
