Last night was the fourth annual Cyndi Lauper & Friends Home for the Holidays concert to benefit her True Colors Fund. The lineup was so eclectic as to almost be off-putting; we're so used to compartmentalized music it seemed jarring to consider hearing Cyndi, Metric, Sufjan Stevens, 50 Cent, Nataline Maines and Salt-N-Pepa all on one bill.

But the diversity of artists led to a long, fun, interesting show, one spiked with equal parts good cheer and defiance.

Cyndi-Lauper

Emcees Rosie O'Donnell and Laverne Cox were a curious yin and yang, with O'Donnell condemning Woody Allen and Bill Cosby while Cox preferred “happy thoughts” and red-carpet posing.

RosieOf her fellow comic, O'Donnell said:

“Twenty-three women in their seventies just woke up and thought, 'What should I do today? Go to Target, or fuck up Bill Cosby's life?' I say he's guilty, and it's sad because it's like a death: We lost Joan, we lost Robin, and we lost Bill Cosby. That's what it feels like to me.”

The crowd approved. But there was a mixed response when she invoked the Hands Up, Don't Shoot! and I Can't Breathe populist outrage that protesters not far away were expressing—some boos, some oohs, some cheers. O'Donnell was perplexed.

The Right Stuff? Comments (0)

Nicolle (sic) Wallace has been announced as the conservative voice on the next season of The View. Considering she was instrumental in the McCain/Palin campaign, you might think she's a total idiot. However, she also supports marriage equality, so she's a big improvement over some of the right-wingers The View has tried out along the way.

She'll be joined by actress Rosie Perez and by the previously-signed Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell. Sounds like sparks will be flying...left and right!

Differing Points Of VIEW Comments (0)

Joy Behar hits the nail on the head in her response to Elisabeth Hasselbeck's meltdown over Rosie O'Donnell negotiating a return to The View. I just wish she'd hit Hasselbeck on the head instead, don't you?

Whoopi

Whoopi's response (prior to the O'Donnell confirmation) was reminsicent of “Elaine Benes” complaining about everyone's excitement over catfights.
