Cyndi Lauper on Madonna’s Women’s March Speech: ‘Anger is Not Better Than Clarity’

One of the most talked about celebrity speeches from the Women’s March over the weekend is Madonna‘s. It was passionate, and it was fiery, and she mentioned she’s thought about “blowing up the White House” metaphorically. On last night’s Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen asked Cyndi Lauper what she thought of the speech.

Lauper said, “I was glad that she went. I think it happens a lot, when you are really jacked up on your feelings, your emotions- I don’t think that it served our purpose because anger is not better than clarity and humanity.”

Scarlett Johansson‘s speech, on the other hand, was “clear, and eloquent,” she said. “Yelling,” she said, “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.”
