** Cyndi has said she was furious when the Parents Music Resource Council named the song to their "Filthy Fifteen" list, as she felt she had written the song cleverly enough that kids wouldn't be able to guess its subject. Judging from the song's #3 placing on the Billboard charts, she was probably right, as the backlash came ''after'' the fact (and after she had - sort of - admitted the song's true meaning during a TV interview with Dr. RuthWestheimer).

Cyndi has always remained in the public eye to a certain extent thanks to 80s nostalgia, but she's also branched out into acting, with a recurring role on ''Series/MadAboutYou'', cameos on ''Series/QueerAsFolk'', ''Series/GossipGirl'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. She wrote the music to the musical ''Kinky Boots'', which earned her a Tony Award for Best Score, the first woman to earn this award.
