Cyndi Lauper memoir due out this fall

The AP reports: Cyndi Lauper says her book will show her true colors.

The award-winning performer has a memoir coming out this fall, Atria Books announced Monday.

Cyndi Lauper will cover the singer's story from her troubled childhood to superstardom in the 1980s to the "ups and downs" that followed.

In a statement issued by Atria, the 58-year-old Lauper said: "Sometimes I come off good, sometimes not so good."

Lauper's hits include "True Colors," "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "Time After Time."

--> In Lauper-related news: A pal of mine gave me the DVD of her Memphis show a few months ago and I can report that it's pretty terrific.

I don't think it got a lot of buzz because it's not what she's used to doing.

It's called To Memphis With Love and it's Cyndi as we've never seen her. Turns out, her slightly raspy voice is perfectly suited for the blues and that's exactly what she does here. That, coupled with her earthy sassiness make this a great addition to any ones concert collection.
