Madonna addressed the crowd by opening with, "Welcome to the revolution of love, to the rebellion and our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny."

About 1 million people participated in the Women's March last weekend, making it a record-breaking movement across the nation, with the core march taking place in Washington, D.C.

Madonna was one of the speakers at the Washington gathering who expressed her views. The outspoken artist addressed the crowd by opening with, "Welcome to the revolution of love, to the rebellion and our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny." She further addressed Donald Trump, who was inaugurated the day before — and the Rebel Heart singer dropped a few F-bombs in the process. 

Last night on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Cyndi Lauper made an appearance and gave feedback on Madonna's controversial speech.

"I don't think it served our purpose because anger is not better than clarity and humanity," said Lauper, who believes sharing personal stories helps change people's minds. Lauper then used Scarlett Johansson's speech as an example, saying, "She shared her story. It was clear. It was eloquent."

Lauper did mention that she was glad Madonna came out to the march.
