Bebe Rexha modeled a tight-fitting dress to Cyndi Lauper‘s hand- and footprint ceremony at Hollywood’s TCL Chinese Theatre on Tuesday.

Cyndi, 70, received glowing testimonials from Bebe, 34, and Cher, 78, before placing her prints in cement in front of the iconic showbiz landmark.

In a few stunning star-studded group shots, Cyndi posed while flanked by her two fellow pop stars in front of a backdrop splashed with her name.

For her latest public appearance, Bebe opted for a clinging black ensemble that showed off her curves as she strode across the stage.

‘It is such an incredible honor to be here today to celebrate the illustrious career of a true icon, Cyndi Lauper,’ she gushed, via NBC.

‘Her legacy as an artist, singer, songwriter, actress and activist will now forever be enshrined in Hollywood history, right here in front of the Chinese Theatre,’ she said.

‘To say that Cyndi is someone that I’ve idolized my entire life is an understatement, you guys. I remember growing up as a little girl in New York City, and I remember dancing around to one of my mother’s favorite artists – who was Cyndi – and she quickly became one of my favorite artists,’ Bebe recalled.

‘And not only was I drawn to her infectious melodies and her edgy style, but it was most importantly her unapologetic nature to be her true self, her true authentic self. She helped to empower me, not only as an artist, but most importantly, as a woman.’

Bebe marveled: ‘And now to be able to call her a friend is so awesome, you guys. I can’t believe I’m here! So this is so amazing, so thank you.’ 

Her touching speech came just days after she posted a TikTok video baring her soul about the various symptoms she has suffered as a result of her polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), including weight gain.

The first symptom she experienced was ‘super, super irregular’ periods, to the point that she once menstruated for 20 days in a single month.

She also noted that she gained ‘a lot’ of weight in the past four years, despite at one point consuming 1,400 daily calories and burning off half of those with exercise.

‘My doctor once told me that a woman with PCOS can eat a bowl of blueberries and it would be equivalent to like a normal person eating a whole pie of pizza,’ she said.

Bebe has also had to contend with ‘bad cysts,’ including one that burst last month, prompting her to rush to Urgent Care.

‘I was in so much pain,’ she remembered. ‘My doctor thought it was an appendicitis, it was so bad. It was actually a cyst that had burst. Tylenol didn’t work, Advil didn’t work. I was sick to my stomach the pain was so bad.’

Bebe held forth about having to weigh her food, adding that her condition also causes her to develop acne and ‘get super bloated.’

She previously discussed her polycystic ovarian syndrome last year, telling Gayle King on SiriusXM how ‘tough’ her battle with the illness has been.

‘I think for me, I’ve been definitely struggling with my weight, and I’ve been struggling with food forever,’ she explained.

‘I definitely struggle with my weight, and I struggle with the way that I look, and it’s been tough for me. I just found out recently that I have PCOS, and a lot of women have it. And a lot of women have it and don’t know.’
