Today’s episode of MTV’s Made featured the incomparable Cyndi Lauper as she mentored troubled gay teen Eli Medina who wants to become a singer. On the show Eli claims to be “openly fabulous” but had to move out of his parents house after his mother disowned him for being gay.
I’m not a fan of the show (or MTV in general), but I thought this was cute and deserves a gander. I love, love, love Cyndi Lauper and her overflowing of support of the lgbt community. If you don’t all of what this woman has done for us then I behoove you to take some time to type “Cyndi Lauper” and “lgbt” into Google. The wonderment of her soul will amaze you.
A clip from Cyndi and Eli mentoring session is below. If you missed it, the full episode should be available at MTV.com starting tomorrow.
