Pop star Katy Perry was consoled by Cyndi Lauper after breaking down in tears watching the singer's Broadway hit "Kinky Boots," on Wednesday.
The singer wept during the finale of the musical, and needed a moment to regain her composure before she went backstage to meet her idol Lauper.
A source tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "She was crying so hard she thought she lost an eyelash."
According to the publication, Lauper later handed Perry a tissue and told her, "Honey, I keep these on me at all times. I've been crying non-stop all week."
Lauper, who wrote the music and lyrics for Kinky Boots, shed tears of joy on Tuesday after the production was nominated for 13 Tony Awards.
