Cyndi Lauper to sing on As the World Turns

Cyndi LauperCount Grammy and Emmy-winner Cyndi Lauper as a fan of As the World Turns' gay couple Noah and Luke. Like the dedicated "Nuke" lovers out there, Cyndi's been anxious for the duo's romance to move more swiftly on the soap. She's decided to do something about it -- and promote her new album at the same time. Cyndi Lauper will appear as herself on the July 3 episode of As the World Turns, sing a couple of songs and subtly let Luke and Noah know that she supports their relationship.

The controversy surrounding Nuke's soap story
-- that their romance is moving too slowly because they're not heterosexual, but homosexual -- has vexed fans. Lauper told Entertainment Weekly, "I think they're young, these guys, and they're sweet. They're taking their time and struggling with the heart issues, which is even more endearing than just being like the straight couples, half-naked and having sex all over the place. The best way to people is through the heart, and that's why I think it's kind of interesting the way they've done it. It's about love.''


On the episode, Luke gets to know Cyndi when he interviews her for the Oakdale University newspaper about her appearance at Yo's. Based on their talk, Cyndi dedicates one of her biggest hits, and one symbolic of diversity, "True Colors," to Luke. "True Colors" is also the name of Cyndi's tour in support of her new dance CD Bring Ya to the Brink.

Musical guests are popping up all over the soaps of late; if Cyndi's goes as well as Snoop Dogg's visit to One Life to Live, that's fine by me.

Maybe it's because I'm open-minded, but come on. Luke and Noah have been together for ages and still havent had sex. If they were straight, this couple would have had sex in about 2 mins. They have the right chemistry and with the exception of a few narrow-minded religious crazy folk, everybody seems ready for them to "do it". I saw a recent poll in one of the soap rags while standing in line at Wal-mart. 97% said they were ready for Nuke to take their next step. It's time ppl. Let's get this show on the road.
