‘True Colors’ Cyndi Lauper had considered suicide before the release of her first album. She indeed almost took her own life by jumping of a hotel balcony, because she was so depressed just before her stardom in the 1980‘s.

”I nearly killed myself… It was such a dark time for me. I thought the sadness would never go away.”
