In what universe does Cyndi Lauper duet with Marilyn Manson and Henry Rollins? This one, apparently.

This past Tuesday (December 10), Cyndi Lauper held her annual Home for the Holidays benefit for homeless youth and was joined onstage by a couple of special guests. VERY special.

First came Marilyn Manson for a duet on his song, “The Beautiful People.”

Then came Henry Rollins for this version of the Black Flag song, “Rise Above.” With a keytar.

Other attendees included Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction and Dexter Holland of The Offspring, but no video has surfaced of them singing with Cyndi–although I betcha she could do a wild version of “Bad Habit.”
