Cyndi Lauper rewards her son in a bid to help him become a budding musician – the star pays him for every song he masters.
The True Colors hitmaker is hoping to pass on her musical talents to her 13-year-old son, Declyn, and is using his recent leg injury as a way of making him focus on learning to play guitar.
And the star has an extra trick to ensure the teen concentrates on his lessons – she offers him cash.
Lauper tells Britain’s Hello! magazine, “I’m teaching him how to play guitar – he hurt his knee playing soccer and has his leg in a cast, so he’s home more than usual, which is great. I’m paying him for every song he masters.
“He’s already a really good drummer. When he was a kid he came on stage in cut-off shorts, no shirt, with long hair. And in front of 10,000 people he walked to the front of the stage and held his sticks up in the air like a real rocker.”
