Cyndi Lauper will get to hear the 80’s superstar’s story in the new documentary ‘Let the Canary Sing.’ Lauper said she let her collaborators do most of the big work, saying she's not a control freak.
Cyndi told the Hollywood Reporter, "Let me tell you, if you are really involved in your documentary, it’s no longer a documentary. Yeah, it’s not. All they wanted from me was, I had to go in and get pictures and pull up old things and show them different work. Or if I had this on film or that."
She did get more involved in one aspect of the production. Cyndi said, "The only thing I got involved with, you know me, sitting in front of the camera, I’m looking at the lighting... And the camera angle, 'Why do you want that camera angle when it’s just about the worst camera angle on me I have ever seen? Why do you want to do that? Is it a documentary or is it a— never mind.'"
