An upcoming Bones episode promises to be so unusual, and not just because it marks the return of Cyndi Lauper‘s recurring psychic Avalon Harmonia.
Executive producer Stephen Nathan confirms that the ’80s pop icon has signed on to reprise her kooky clairvoyant in one of the show’s Season 7 standalone bonus episodes.
“It’s a departure for us,” says Nathan. “We’re doing the entire episode from the point of view of the victim. It’s a stylistic challenge but one we’ve been thinking about tackling for quite a while. Since these four episodes are sort of free floating, this seemed to be the right time to do it.”
Bones creator Hart Hanson broke the news of Lauper’s comeback on Twitter Monday. “Writing dialogue for the incomparable Cyndi Lauper AKA Avalon Harmonia is a BLAST,” he wrote.

(DE) Die 1953 in Queens, New York, geborene Cynthia "Cyndi" Lauper ist eine der Pop-Ikonen der 1980er Jahre. Mit Hits wie "Girls Just Want to Have Fun", "Time After Time" und "True Colors" wird sie zum Weltstar. Als Heranwachsende kommt sie nur schlecht in der Schule zurecht, verlässt früh ihr Elternhaus, interessiert sich für extravagante Kleidung und tingelt in den 1970er Jahren als Sängerin einer Cover-Band durch die New Yorker Clubszene. 1979 prägt die Sängerin Pat Benatar das neue Bild der selbstbewussten Künstlerin. Das hilft auch Cyndi Lauper, die ihr Debütalbum "She's So Unusual" 1983 weltweit 15 Millionen Mal verkauft. Mit der Ballade "True Colors" schafft sie es 1986 auf Platz 1 der US-Hitparade und gibt 1988 ihr Hollywood-Debüt als Schauspielerin in dem Film "Vibes - Die übersinnliche Jagd nach der glühenden Pyramide". 1990 ist sie bei Roger Waters "The Wall"-Inszenierung in Berlin dabei, dreht im gleichen Jahr ihren nächsten Spielfilm und setzt sich für die Rechte von Schwulen und Lesben ein. 1996 erscheint ihr Album "Sisters of Avalon", auf dem sie Oberflächlichkeit und Heuchelei anprangert. 2003 veröffentlicht sie die Liedersammlung "At Last", die sie als den "Soundtrack ihres Lebens" bezeichnet, und beweist ihre Vielseitigkeit, als sie im Frühjahr 2006 in der Musical-Fassung von Bertolt Brechts "Dreigroschenoper" am Broadway auftritt. 2010 veröffentlicht Cyndi Lauper ihr bisher letztes Album: "Memphis Blues". 3sat präsentiert Cyndi Lauper in einem Konzert aus dem Jahr 2004 in New York mit den großen Hits ihrer Karriere.
(EN) Danish TV station dk4 will be showing a Cyndi Lauper concert on the 15th April 2012 @ 8:30 pm showcasing all of her hits.
(DK) Har man været ung/ barn i 80'erne er Cyndi Lauper ikke til at komme uden om. Med hits som "Time After Time", "True Colours" og "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" sad hun tungt på hitlisterne.
Da Cyndi Lauper desuden havde gennemskuet MTV og lod ethvert singleudspil ledsage af en musikvideo havde hun virkelig hul igennem til sit publikum.
Cyndi Lauper er blevet voksne, hendes hits er dog stadig absolut værd at synge med på. At hun desuden er en af de kunstnere, der også klarer sig fint live, er koncerten her et godt bevis på. Kender man ikke hende eller hendes hits, er det absolut på tide, at man får ørene slået ud, når dk4 sender Koncert med Cyndi Lauper.

ATRIA BOOKS INKS DEAL FOR CYNDI LAUPER MEMOIR
(NEW YORK) – April 9, 2012. Grammy Award winner, activist and actress Cyndi Lauper has signed a deal for Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir to be published this coming fall by Atria Books. Written with journalist Jancee Dunn, the book will detail for the first time Cyndi’s tumultuous years growing up in Queens, the ups and downs of a career that has spanned over three decades, her conflicted feelings on fame and her advocacy of equality for all that led to the creation of her foundation, the True Colors Fund.
At 17, Cyndi left her chaotic home life with no prospects and no money. While taking jobs at the racetrack, as an I-Hop waitress and gal Friday, music was her refuge. She moved from band to band, playing small gigs and finally landed a solo deal. In 1983 she broke out with “She’s So Unusual” which earned her a Grammy for Best New Artist and made her the first female artist in history to have five top 10 singles on a debut album.
“Most of us think of Cyndi as the free-spirited girl who just wants to have fun and her many die-hard fans will be surprised to know her real life story,” says Judith Curr, Executive Vice President and Publisher, Atria Books.
“Sometimes I come off good, sometimes not so good,” says Lauper. “But I never wanted this book to be anything but my truth. It’s not about what people think of me, but what I learned along the way. And if telling the story of what I went through can help someone else, then it’s worth it.”
The deal, for world rights including audio, was negotiated by Atria editor Amy Tannenbaum who initially approached Cyndi to write her memoir.
Atria Books is an imprint of Simon & Schuster, a part of CBS Corporation. Simon & Schuster is a global leader in the field of general interest publishing, dedicated to providing the best in fiction and nonfiction for consumers of all ages, across all printed, electronic, and audio formats. Its divisions include Simon & Schuster Adult Publishing, Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, Simon & Schuster Audio, Simon & Schuster Online, and international companies in Australia, Canada, India, and the United Kingdom.
