Wow. This is powerful.
"I too, waited anxiously for a prescription to be filled for the opiate I was secretly addicted to. I too, took too many at once. I too, sought to kill emotional and physical pain with pain killers. Kill it. Make it stop.
Too many of our fellow humans, famous, infamous, and not famous at all, have sought the same relief. The symbolism of James Taylor's Fire and Rain,an anthem of addiction, seems more poignant as now it is a purple rain, another loss to drug addiction."
The Scream Queens star — who has been in recovery from her addiction for 17 years — continued:
Cyndi Lauper Explains Why She's Performing In North Carolina Despite Anti-LGBT Laws — Does She Have A Point??
Trans people just wanna have access to the bathroom. They just wanna.
Cyndi Lauper is without a doubt one of the most influential gay icons of the 1980s, which is why some fans questioned her decision to not cancel her shows in North Carolina despite the state's anti-transgender bathroom laws.
The pink lady already explained that she was going to donate all proceeds from her concerts to local LGBT-friendly charities, and now she's speaking out again!
Cyndi stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday to share her take on the controversy, and she actually made some really good points!
For one thing, she believes it's more supportive to physically be in North Carolina and to rally against resident bigot Gov. Pat McCrory than to voice your concerns from the sidelines.
In fact, the True Colors singer even shared a touching story about how deciding to play shows in Florida when Trayvon Martin was murdered actually helped the community!
We still think musicians cancelling their gigs sends a strong message, but we're glad artists like Cyndi are willing to slum it down South for the betterment of our transgender peers!
Ch-ch-check out Cyndi's politically charged Late Night appearance (above)!!!

We can't say we're surprised.
Of course, this sudden change in style sent Directioners into a tizzy online. We mean, the British cutie essentially taunted his loyal fans by teasing the new cut with a picture of his snipped ponytail — but not the shorter look. Oh, you think we're kidding?
In fact, many took to Twitter to comment on the A-lister's charitable donation (below).

Beige is anything but dull when it's worn by Sophie Turner!
At an X-Men: Apocalypse presser for BBC Radio in London Friday, the actress was an absolute hottie in an off-white sweater tucked into a short beige leather skirt.
For once black pumps didn't bore us to death, because they offered the proper contrast to the light neutrals of her outfit.
Also, as per usual, we were ridiculously enthralled by the Game of Thrones star's gorgeous head of red hair.
Never dye it, girl! Promise us!
