Music's Biggest Night to Demonstrate Support for Time's Up Movement
In a recent report from ET, it appears the biggest stars in the entertainment industry will show their support for the Time's Up movement by wearing a white rose at the 90th Annual Grammy Awards. Music stars such as Kelly Clarkson, Cyndi Lauper, Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora and Bebe Rexha have already confirmed their support of this decision and are expected to display the symbol of unity at the presentation on Sunday, January 28th.
It is no surprise that the biggest night in music is also showing support for the Time's Up movement after the great success of the demonstration at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month. Meg Harkins, senior vice president at Roc Nation, told The Hollywood Reporter "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 stated. "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." The choice of the white rose symbolizes unity while also paying homage to the Suffragettes who wore all white to their protests.
James Cordon (The Late Show) will host the 90th Annual Grammy Awards which will be broadcast live from Madison Square Garden on Sunday, January 28th at 7:30 p.m. ET on CBS. This is the first time the award show will take the stage in New York City for the first time in 15 years.
