So 30 Rock, right?
Last night, TV’s best comedy went out in style with an all-star tribute to Jack’s dad — singing a We Are the World-like song to get him a kidney. There was some surprising star power (Elvis Costello to Clay Aiken to Mary J. Blige) along with some people who were probably just happy to be invited (Rhett Miller and Rachael Yamagata).
The highlight of the entire song, though, was Cyndi Lauper’s admission that she was one of the drunk artists. The fact is, she’s always seemed a bit drunk. Her accent is a little hazy — does she talk like that because she’s from Queens or because she’s been stealing sips of Absolute Pear from her purse all night? But now, with that moment, she’s cemented her status as a camp icon. As if headlining the True Colors Tour weren’t bad enough, Cyndi has guaranteed that there will be drag queens dressed up like her decades from now.
