Cyndi Lauper is no fan of the music industry — that is when it comes to allegedly forcing artists to produce music that only focuses on sex and violence.

Appearing on Sirius XM recently, Lauper made her thoughts public when discussing some of her favorite Hip Hop acts, including Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne.

"I like Nicki Minaj a lot. My son went through all the hip hop stuff with me and he showed me that 50's voice is kind of butter smooth. I still like Snoop because he makes me laugh. I think that Lil Wayne has written some very powerful things about his life," Lauper said before getting very candid about her views on music…

"I think though the industry itself makes you not be able to write about issues. They don't want issues out there so they make the kids write about sex and violence and that impacts the young African American women in a way that they feel is a little negative."

While that is how she feels about the issue, Cyndi Lauper is optimistic that things will change…

"Everything changes so it'll turn around," she says…

Do you agree with Cyndi Lauper?
