This week 60 Minutes has some unbelievable stories this weekend.
Chances are you will find this story incredibly hard to believe. It’s confronting and confounding, but it really happened. Raised in middle-class Sydney, Katie Lang’s future was almost assured – exciting and prosperous. But her big mistake was to fall in love with the wrong man. Katie thought Damion Baston wanted to be her boyfriend. What he really wanted was to be her pimp. He used violence to control her, turning her into a sex slave and trafficking her around the world. But what this monster didn’t anticipate was Katie’s strength, and when she was finally able to escape his abuse, she set about plotting her revenge.

If you didn’t know better you’d swear the word quirky was invented to describe singer Cyndi Lauper. Everything about her is unique, from her highly distinctive voice to her individual fashion sense. But thank goodness for Cyndi Lauper. Her catchy hits – some of them silly, all of them heartfelt – helped us get through the 1980s. The songs continue to get airplay around the world, but today Cyndi’s enjoying a career renaissance with her Broadway musical, Kinky Boots. She is also raising her considerable voice for those without a voice, the alienated and the less well-off, and she wants Australian politicians to start listening.
