Cyndi Lauper became famous long ago for telling us that “girls just wanna have fun.”

But that was a just a song.

When Cyndi gets serious, which she did with Live! Starring … You!’s Gabi Hartman on the red carpet at the Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards in New York City, her advice applies to guys and girls. And it’s about a whole lot more than simply having fun.

Gabi asked Cyndi, who wrote the music for the Tony-winning Broadway show Kinky Boots, what insight she would offer to teens who want to break out big in show business.

Here’s Cyndi’s answer: “If you can picture yourself there, you can be there. And don’t really listen if somebody tells you that you can’t. Because you don’t want to grow older and feel like you shoulda, coulda, woulda. Because you oughta. Just do it, you know?”

Just do it.

If it’s good enough for Nike, and it’s good enough for Cyndi Lauper, then that motto definitely works for the rest of us too. Don’t you think?
