DJ Ron Slomowicz: The first time I saw you was at the Billboard Dance Music Summit when you were speaking on the divas panel with Gloria Gaynor, Claudja Barry, Yoko Ono and Nona Hendryx. You made a funny crack when Gloria was going on about seeing God and saying that her music was sanctified. You said something like, 'are you sure that was God you saw? '
Cyndi Lauper: She was saying that she thought that the music she was singing wasn't about God or for God, and I said are you sure that was God? Of course it might as well been a spitball she threw at the back of my head because I felt her, saying what are you doing, Shut Up! The only reason I said that is because, for me, every part of music is about empowerment and God. Personally I hope God is a drag queen, so we have a lot to discuss about fashion, makeup and cleavage Honestly, whatever it is: a higher consciousness, an energy from within, whatever makes us run without batteries or plugs, that why we sing. I think when you're singing a song about empowerment, like I Will Survive, it's not not about God. The strength to get up and say I will survive, that's about God, to me. Because music can give you the strength to do something, to transcend how you feel into a better place, to lift you up, to give you energy, and to change the energy,
Scientifically, music is an immediate medium that changes the vibration of anything, because it's a vibrational medium. So when you're playing music you're changing the vibration of that moment, because music is always in a vibration. And with us being vibrational creatures, we're the nano-vibrational word, because even the Earth has kind of a pulse and a tone. One of my teachers told me he dated an archeologist and told me that the Earth vibrates in D-flat, which is not the saddest of all keys, but a really nice key. So anything that you are playing is going to change the vibration, move the vibration, change the energy, or move the energy. Anything on that vibrational plane is godlike, because that's something that we don't own, that energy transforms and changes all the time. Now that's on the scientific tip, who would have thought that I would have been a rocket scientist, but instead I took the liberal arts course. Do you understand?
