Cyndi Lauper on "Girls Just Want to Have Fun": "I'm proud to be part of it ... I'm proud for all the things that I fought for"

Coming up this evening at 9, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" studio takes on a decidedly clinical feel, as television's Dr. Oz trades his stethoscope for a microphone, filling in as guest host.

Anchoring a show dedicated to health and aging, the man born Mehmet Cengiz Oz will welcome a trio of sensational women.

Staring her sixtieth birthday in the face, Cyndi Lauper is the eldest of tonight's guest, and nearly three decades remove from her Grammy-nominated single, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun."

Seated across from Oz, Lauper reflected on the song that became an anthem for young ladies everywhere:

"I'm very proud. I'm proud to be part of it. I'm proud for all the things that I fought for, to have all different races of women with me," says the woman that VH1 ranked No. 58 of the 100 Greatest Women of Rock & Roll. "So that every little girl, no matter who she was or what color she was, would look in at that screen and realize that she, too, was entitled to have fun, because a joyful existence is in - everyone is entitled, not just some."

Despite the title and theme of the song, Lauper admits that she could have lived it's message a little more completely:

"I was so busy working then that I couldn't think. I was just trying to get it done and get the artistic part of it," she tells the "Piers Morgan Tonight" guest host. "Life is going to be a roller coaster. You're going to be up, you're going to be down. You're going to be up, you're going to be [down.] It's really the ride. And I was down so long that when I went up, I was like, whoa, it's going to always be like this. Not always."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in at 9 for more insight from the woman who describes her life philosophy by saying in part, "you dig your heels in and you stand and you endure. And you keep going."
