Stars Will Wear White Roses at the Grammys In Support of #TimesUp


Artists including Halsey, Rapsody, Kelly Clarkson, Cyndi Lauper, Dua Lipa, Rita Ora, and Tom Morello have all already confirmed their support.

Hollywood isn't the only field planning a visual support of the #TimesUp movement--the music industry will lend its solidarity to the cause by encouraging artists to wear white roses on the red carpet of this Sunday's Grammys as a nod to the cause.

The demonstration concept was created by Roc Nation's senior VP Meg Harkins and Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records' Karen Rait, who both took action after noting that no plan had been put in place for "music's biggest night."

After meeting with a dozen women in music this past week in New York City, the organizers decided upon white in a nod to the color chosen by the suffragettes, and because Hillary Clinton wore white on the day of Donald Trump's inauguration.

"It is an important conversation politically in our country and it's also a conversation we need to have internally with our artists and our companies," Harkins told Billboard. "We need to say if anyone is feeling like they're being discriminated against and they don't feel safe in their workplace, they have people who will support them."

Artists including Halsey, Rapsody, Kelly Clarkson, Cyndi Lauper, Dua Lipa, Rita Ora, and Tom Morello have all already confirmed their support by agreeing to wear the flower or by signing on in support of the demonstration.
