This modern remake of ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ is painfully on-point

One of Cyndi Lauper’s biggest hits is getting a modern-day upgrade encompassing some of the things that women crave today.

With some help from James Corden, who’s wearing in a bright pink wig that matches Lauper’s hair, the duo launch into “Girls Just Want Equal Funds,” an anthem for the modern woman who wants to be paid the same as men and see fewer stereotypes in movies and TV.

No, they don’t have PMS if they’re angry, they want comfy shoes, and they’d pay for dates when they make the same amount of money.

Sure, girls want to have fun. But they’d also like to be able to afford that fun. It’s all they really want.
