LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Girl power is proving to have an incredibly long shelf life. That was made clear at Thursday's Cheetah Girls show at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles.
The pop music concept of empowering young females was popularized in the early '80s, when Cyndi Lauper had a monster hit with the feel-good anthem "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." The song might be older than the Cheetahs' members, but that didn't stop them from wheeling out an updated cover toward the close of their set, in a triumphant moment in which the trio was joined onstage by opening act Everlife.
