Technically, the 30th anniversary of Cyndi Lauper’s iconic hit “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” isn’t until September 6th. That’s when the single was officially released thirty years ago. Fans of the pop classic decided to get a jump on things and film a lip dub, most likely to celebrate Lauper’s first Tony Award nomination for Kinky Boots. The musical’s signature boots prominently pop up in the homage as famous and not-so-famous individuals lip sync to the track.
A few of the notable people appearing in the video are Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, Kelly Ripa, Katie Couric, Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford. In other words, pretty much any woman who’s had a daytime talk show. Other “girls” having fun include the cast of Kinky Boots, Chicago, Annie, The Lion King and other Broadway hits. The most surprising cameo is from RHONY’s Luann De Lesseps. How in the world did she snag a spot in the clip. Check out the video below.
