Cyndi Lauper, the vocalist of “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” was the rock-pop star of the 1980s. Before she got famous, she spent years singing and writing songs for a band named Blue Angel, which never became well-known. After the band disbanded, she had to file for bankruptcy, Lauper had to work in shops and restaurants to make ends meet. Fortunately, her big break came only two years later, and the rest, as they say, is history. In 2019, Forbes estimated her net worth to be $30 million.
