Cyndi Lauper has come out with the harshest rebuke yet of Miley Cyrus.

Asked by Australian radio station Gold 104.3 for her thoughts on Miley's VMA performance, the singer at first labeled it as a "sad" example of a "girl gone wild."

But the Tony nominee then zeroed on the tracks to which Cyrus Twerked alongside Robin Thicke and picked apart the lyrics of "Blurred Lines."

"She's in a song that literally says that the blurred lines allowed you to - when a woman says no, she means yes - and that's frightful because that's date rape," said Lauper, adding: "I just felt like that was so beneath her and raunchy, really raunchy. It wasn't even art."

Cyndi Lauper struck it huge in the 1980s by singing that Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

But in her new autobiography, the singer writes about how her childhood was filled with anything but carefree enjoyment.

Faced with an abusive stepfather who threatened to rape her and her sister, Lauper grew up in poverty and in deep depression.

“I had no television, no stereo, nothing. I was still a kid and I was alone," the artist recalls in Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir. “A lot of times I couldn’t take it anymore, so I just lay in bed all the time. When I really couldn’t deal with anything, I used to get the shakes, just ­complete anxiety attacks.

“I’d empty out the cupboard under the sink and crawl under there. I’d stay in there ­because it was enclosed, and slowly I would begin to feel better.”

Even when she achieved professional success, Lauper couldn't relax and bask in the glory of a career than eventually resulted in 50 million records sold.

"I had come so far but felt like I had failed," Lauper says of her time living in a NYC hotel. "I disappointed the record company because I didn’t come home with an armful of awards like they expected. It was always like that; it was never enough."

Poor Cyndi Lauper. The former hit singer chose a really bad weekend to botch the National Anthem.

Singing America's favorite song prior to the U.S. Open semifinals on Saturday, Lauper didn't mess it up as badly as Christina Aguilera did at the Super Bowl. But "“O’er the ramparts, we watched as our flag was still streaming?" Sorry, but no.

Tweeted Lauper after the rendition:

"Whew, I just did the anthem for the US open. It was an awesome experience.I got choked up in the middle remembering 9/11. I hope I didn’t mess up too bad. I wanted it to be comforting.”

As the singer performed "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" over the PA system, everyone joined in. If only this happened every time your flight got delayed ...
