This award season celebrities are focused on supporting the Time’s Up movement. At the Golden Globes attendee’s wore black and Time’s Up pins. A handful of female attendees brought activists as their date and let them speak and spread their message during red carpet interviews.
The Grammys are this weekend and even though the Me Too reckoning hasn’t quite shaken the music industry like it has to the film industry attendees will still be supporting the movements. Celebrities at the Grammys will be wearing white roses to signify support of Time’s Up.
According to Billboard, the demonstration of solidarity was organized by Roc Nation senior VP Meg Harkins and rhythmic promotion at Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records Karen Rait. They created a group of women in the industry calling themselves Voices in Entertainment.
“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”
Voices in Entertainment demonstration spread like wildfire in the music industry. Supposedly Halsey, Kelly Clarkson, Due Lipa, Rita Ora and much more are going to be donning white roses this Sunday.
The group decided on white roses because roses are wildly accessible and the color white holds significance. Harkins said that white was the suffragettes wore while protesting and it’s what Hillary Clinton wore at Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Rait told Billboard, “Music artists have a lot of impact… So it’s only fitting that that music’s biggest night show the support for equality and safety in the workplace and that people need to be cognizant of their fellow employees.”
