This just in from Daddy Yankee, courtesy of the Mexico City newspaper El Universal: Reggaetón isn't sexist toward women. In fact, las mujeres are among the music genre's biggest consumers.

In the interview with El Universal, published earlier this week, the Puerto Rican reggaetón star also defended reggaetoneros against the charge that their music stirred up trouble in Mexico City last July in connection with a canceled reggaetón concert.

"It's unjust to put the blame on the movement, on the music, when it has more to do with poor business logistics," Daddy Yankee told the newspaper in Spanish.
