Cyndi Lauper turns 60 on June 22, 2013, but the rock legend clearly isn't slowing down any time soon. You know her because of her incredible hits like "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "True Colors," but she's stayed in our minds through the years because she is constantly present in the music scene and has become involved in societal issues like LGBT rights.

Never one to be shy about her feelings, her music, or her style, she used to really keep us guessing. Debuting new hair styles -- and colors! -- on a regular basis, she tended to take risks with fashion, too. Lately, she's worn a lot of black, black, and some more black, but she always keeps it interesting with a pop of leather, lace, or lots of layers.

One of our favorite rockers and a frequent music festival powerhouse, Lauper has left her mark on rock and roll forever. Most recently, she won the Tony Award for Best Original Score for the new hit Broadway Musical 'Kinky Boots,' and we can't wait to see what is still to come for her!
