When “True Colors” came out, it was very hard to perform, because I’d be standing there in front of all these people who were keyed up, and I was keyed up too, and I’d have to sing from that place of emotion. When I did get to that place though, this radiance would come from my heart and travel to my arms and hands. It made a bow that encompassed me, like a hug, and it would go out in the world and do the same thing to the audience. Happy 33RD #TrueColors (link in story above) ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
During their conversation Lauper shocked Clarkson when she revealed that she was a fan of her song "Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)." Excited by the news, Clarkson responded:
"You know that song? I’m so cool right now!"
"I do. Whenever I was feeling really downtrodden, I would sing along with you," Lauper responded back to Clarkson.
Clarkson admits that she loves the fact that Lauper had heard her music. Reminding the "American Idol Alum" of her own star power, Lauper says:
"Are you kidding? It was a huge hit."
