(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - Cyndi Lauper , the Grammy-winning singer and LGBT rights activist, swears her book will show her true colors.

The "Time After Time" performer has a memoir coming out this fall, Atria Books announced Monday.

Titled "Cyndi Lauper," it will cover the 58-year-old, New York-born singer's story from her troubled childhood to superstardom in the 1980s to the "ups and downs" that followed.

In a statement issued by Atria, the one-time "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant said: "Sometimes I come off good, sometimes not so good.''

Lauper's hits include "True Colors," "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "Time After Time."

Atria is an imprint of Simon & Schuster, which has the same parent company as CBS.
