Cyndi Lauper On Madonna's Women's March Speech: 'I Don't Think It Served Our Purpose'

What did Cyndi Lauper think of Madonna's somewhat controversial speech at the Women's March? (Madge stated that she thought “an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”)

Lauper visited Watch What Happens Live and gave Andy Cohen the tea on that as well as her alleged rivalry with Madonna.

Cyndi shared:

“I was glad that she went. I think that it happens a lot when you are really jacked up and feeling your emotions. I don’t think that it served our purpose because anger is not better than clarity and humanity. That is what opens people’s minds. When you want to change people’s minds, you have to share your real story…Yelling doesn’t. It just jacks people up but it doesn’t communicate any kind of humanity or any kind of story that would open another person’s mind.”

What do you think??

I don't think Cyndi listened to the whole speech because most of Madonna's speech was about love and how violence solves nothing and we must turn from that.

I think Madonna's speech was enough to wake people up and even if she stated that she contemplated,  "blowing up the white house" she ended it with violence is not the answer. Love is and nobody said anything about that!
