Lauper wins $20k for Gay rights foundation + profits from "Blue Sky" song go to TRUE COLORS charity!
"Trace Adkins returned to "The Celebrity Apprentice" on April 18, and he brought new artists Emily West and Luke Bryan with him. Apparently they need makeovers, though we think they've been doing just fine on their own. Emily's song "Blue Sky" features superstar Keith Urban, and Luke Bryan took home the Best New Artist award at tonight's Academy of Country Music Awards.

Cyndi Lauper and Goldberg were named project managers, though Goldberg understandably let Bret Michaels take over. After all, who better knows how to sell a musician than an 80s icon?

There was some serious tension going on with the women's team. Cyndi Lauper was a very demanding project manager (and won!). She took control and didn't delegate at all. Maria and Holly were visibly frustrated throughout the entire task, but we think they can suck it up. Last week, the other women didn't listen to Cyndi at all - they literally put the phone down while Cyndi was pitching ideas. So they can dish it out, but they can't take it?

Emily West's performance of "Blue Sky" blew us away. We hit iTunes in search of the song before she'd finished her first verse - and that was before we found out that all proceeds from both "Blue Sky" and "Rain is a Good Thing" will benefit Cyndi's True Colors fund for the next month."

COULD BE BIG CASH!

1. Good. My wife is a huge fan of hers.
We've seen her perform a few times. The last time was in a very small venue. She was about 20 feet from us.

My wife had the DJ play 'Feels like Christmas' at our wedding for her song to me.

it was abfab! I told her I'd warm her up (it was soooo cold) and she smiled that sweet smile of her and lowered her head playfully.

we need more humans like this CHAMPION of rights! she's building treasures in heaven miles high... I can't wait to see a story on the GLBT homeless youth shelter she's funding, also.




"And I said we are inter-dependent
And the effects on each other never ending
And that the air has no boundaries
I think this water that surrounds me
Is the same water soaking' through to you"

3. I love Cyndi so much
and while I don't watch this show at all, the others should tremble in the face of Lauper's acumen and experience in business. She's talented in more ways than one, that Cyndi.

her music. :) Way to go, Cyndi!

6. Yes, as a matter of fact, the Burnett production team filmed her at that signing, and
it was on Celebrity last week. :) (She had to take some time away from the show in order to attend the signing.)
