In an interview with Parade, Lauper was quizzed on why she believes her music has continued to influence singer-songwriters through the decades.

"I don't think it's a secret: I never stopped [recording]," Lauper explained. "When people told me you can't do this or that, I would just do it. I didn't think there was another choice for me."

Lauper also reflected on her unique fashion sense, which has included dying her hair a variety of colours and championing cutting-edge fashions.

"I always liked that salmon-pink hair colour; I still use it," the musician said. "And I loved the retro-glam look, but I wanted to make it my own, so I wore high heels and pedal pushers, which nobody was really wearing at the time. I'm obsessed with fashion."

Her new reality series Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual airs on Saturdays at 9/8c on WE TV.
