Cyndi Lauper Explains the Sexual Inspiration Behind 'She Bop': VIDEOS

Beefcake

In September 1984, Cyndi Lauper’s single “She Bop” reached number three on the U.S. Billboard’s Hot 100 — not bad for a song about female masturbation.

In a recent interview to promote her new two-disc release of She's So Unusual: A 30th Anniversary Celebration Lauper revealed that she actually got the idea for the song from a drunken associate and by fingering through the pages of a Blueboy gay porn mag. Hence the lyrics:

Well I see them every night in tight blue jeans
In the pages of a Blueboy magazine
Hey I've been thinkin' of a new sensation
I'm pickin' up good vibrations
Oop she bop she bop

Do I wanna go out with a lion's roar?
Huh, yea, I wanna go south and get me some more
Hey, they say that a stitch in time saves nine
They say I better stop or I'll go blind
Oop she bop she bop

Lauper has also said she recorded the “She Bop” vocals while nude and “tickling herself” in the studio. The late 80s era Parents Music Resource Center included the song in their "Filthy Fifteen" list of songs they found most objectionable. PMRC went on to create the parental guidance warning sticker system placed on albums with “objectionable” content — you know, songs about sex, drugs, violence, or the occult (the things that make music awesome).

Los Angeles actor Adrian Anchondo has teamed up with former RuPaul Drag Racer Honey Mahogany, Dulce De Leche, Adrian Anchondo and Reggie White to make a fast-foodtastic video parody of Beyonce’s ‘Partition.’ It's called "In-N-Out Mission" and it serves up the fries with a whole lotta shake.

'Our Gay Wedding: The Musical' to Hit British TV Tonight: VIDEO

Gayweddingmusical

In early March we reported that Stephen Fry was set to narrate a television special called Our Gay Wedding: The Musical on the UK's Channel 4 shortly after marriage equality went into effect in Britain.

The show is airing tonight, with mysic and lyrics written by the couple being wed, composer Benjamin Till and actor Nathan Taylor, and group numbers to be performed by the couples' guests (and with several special appearances).

GaymuseThe wedding took place on Saturday at London's Alexandra Palace, Metro reports:

They tied the knot on Saturday with The Feeling singing The Beach Boys’ God Only Knows as they walked up the aisle. Then Erasure’s Andy Bell sang Respect. And Stephen Fry introduced the proceedings.

They add:

The mothers, meanwhile, sing a beautiful duet about their emotions as their sons came out. It’s enough to melt the iciest of hearts. The songs are ridiculously catchy, too. The show’s commissioning editor, John Hay, said he just can’t get the tunes out of his head. ‘They’re real earworms,’ he told Metro.co.uk.

The only part of the ceremony that had to be spoken were the declarations.

The law simply doesn’t allow these to be sung. So, had the grooms said something wrong, or even just mumbled slightly, the registrar (who also sang, of course), would have had to put them right.

Afterwards Mr Till described the experience as ‘beautiful and surreal’ while Mr Taylor, who met his other half 12 years ago, told Metro.co.uk it was ‘the most magical, intense, enjoyable, moving, emotional event anyone could ever wish for’.
