The Time’s Up initiative will proceed to empower on the 2018 Grammy Awards this Sunday.
Just like the 2018 Golden Globes, throughout which stars wore all black to protest sexual harassment and inequality, celebrities who attend the Grammy Awards are actually being inspired to put on white roses to proceed spreading the message.
A gaggle dubbed the Voices in Leisure joined collectively to pen a letter to their “brothers and sisters in music,” writing, “As we are inspired by the #timesup campaign, we are encouraging the artists that we work with and our colleagues attending the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in New York City to wear a white rose to the ceremony on Sunday, January 28th. We choose the white rose because historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy and resistance.”
The letter, which was led by Meg Harkins of Roc Nation and Karen Rait of Rhymthmic Promotion, Interscope/Geffen/A&M Data, continued, “Please join us in support of equal representation in the workplace, for leadership that reflects the diversity of our society, workplaces free of sexual harassment and a heightened awareness of accountability that our sisters started on January 1st and continued through the Golden Globes and onward.”
Grammy nominated artist Rapsody—who’s the one feminine artist with nods for Greatest Rap Album and Greatest Rap Tune—is already confirmed to put on the rose in help of the motion.
The letter concluded, “The world is listening. Wear a white rose.”
The motion may even be supported on social media by the hashtags, #timesup, #whiterose and #hope.
