Time’s Up: Stars To Wear White Roses To The Grammys

By Billy Praise 26 January 2018   |   7:48 am

The Time’s Up initiative will spread its wings into the Grammy Awards coming up this Sunday as a group called Voices In Entertainment have come together to encourage people to wear white roses to the event in support of the movement.

Championed by Meg Harkins, SVP of Marketing at Roc Nation and Karen Rait, Rhythmic Promotion, Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records, the group of 15 women sent a letter to their fellow industry members.

The letter reads:

“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.

In addition, it says:

“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.”

According to reports via The Los Angeles Times, Halsey, Fergie, Kelly Clarkson, Bebe Rexha, Cyndi Lauper and Rapsody are among stars who have pledged their support.
