Today is the official release date of Cyndi Lauper's two-disc She's So Unusual: A 30th Anniversary Celebration — and that's no joke. The new release of the album includes demos, rehearsals, B-sides, live tracks, and remixes. We couldn't be more excited.

Except now we are: See this special interview below in which the songstress explains how some of those lyrics. You may be too young to remember, but when "She Bop" hit the radio, it caused a stir since it was about female masturbation. And it turns out, Cyndi used a copy of Blue Boy, a gay porn mag, to get inspired. Check it out below, then if you're feeling especially nostalgic, watch the original video for "She Bop".
