German Company: Lauper's a Real Deutschbag

5/29/2009 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A German company is saying they got the über-shaften from singer Cyndi Lauper -- so much so they're suing her for the equivalent of a hundred thousand six-packs of Becks. ($800,000)

Moderne Welt claims Lauper and her agent at William Morris agreed to do seven concerts in Germany that were to start in July of this year.

Welt claims in his Federal lawsuit -- nine days after Lauper's agent gave them the go-ahead, they were informed the deal was off "due to film and television commitments."

The company is going after Lauper for the 800 g's -- which includes the cost of publicizing the shows, plane tickets and a bunch of other stuff.

The word über-shaften does not exist in the German language.

"Moderne Welt" is referred to as a person. What idiot 12 year old wrote this piece? For that matter, what idiot 12 year old writes all of this? Moderne Welt means Modern World and is clearly not an individual but that is almost certainly too complicated for corpulent, stupid Americans. A perfect case in point of a stupid and monophone nation.

Cyndi is a talented singer and musician, which is more than anyone can say for many self-proclaimed 'artists'.
I've got a proposal for this promoter. In exchange for us keeping Cyndi over here, he can take the talentless Heidi Klum back to Germany.
If I have to listen to her butcher the English language for much longer, I'll scream.

NJ Girl what up then?    

Hey Biff! She's a loser you say? Yeah, look at your own winner of a family! Should you really be calling someone a loser who has made more money then you and your whole degenerate lifeline can even dream about? What do you do for a living? Ah, right pizza delivery or something of that nature. As for the rest of you with negative things to say about Cyndi Lauper which includes you "bye bitch" keep living your broke ass, pathetic, bitter lives and go back to your Mc Donald's lifestyle because your're just a bunch of sh** talking trash that will never amount to anything.

Hey comment #1 People named Biff have no room to make fun of anyone.
Hey comment #6 She's straight, marrried to the same man for the past 18 years, and has an 11 year old son.
Hey comment #11 More people care about Cyndi than will ever care about you. Do the world a favor and dig your own grave.(Don't forget to jump in and take Biff and the hater from comment #6 with you)

Cyndi Lauper is one of the most gifted musicians of the last 30 years. Those of you bashing her won't know that because you're not meant to know that or experience the deepness she radiates. She's a beacon for home and love for millions of people and actually quite the opposite of all of the horrible things that have been said about her. What she possesses on the inside and what she has given back to the world is on so great of a scale that the idiots who bash her aren't ever going to know, or be lucky and deep enough to understand it. Not just with Cyndi, but on any scale in life.

So search yourself and make sure you're soul is beautiful and deep before you bash another (Cyndi) who actually possesses those qualities and gifts of life.

Peace Always,

J. Star ;-)
