Regardless of what they were each shilling, the best bit happened as Cyndi sat down beside Adam and he declared, “I love you. I think you’re so awesome. You’re just an amazing, interesting, brilliant human being and I’ve always wanted to tell you that. So I waited till national television.”
Lauper clutched Levine’s hand, patted him on the shoulder and gave a classic “Cyndi” response: “Hey, you’re not too shabby yourself, buddy.”
The pop icon proceeded to chatter on about performing at the White House in a manner that once again proves she always has been and always will be living on Planet Cyndi. Then she offered up a custom-made pair of kinky boots to Leno, which she suggested he wear when he goes zipping around the L.A. ‘burbs on his motorcycle.
Still so unusual, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
