Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Lorde Show Solidarity with Time's Up on the Grammys Red Carpet
Published Jan 28, 2018As anticipated, many of music's biggest stars pledged their solidarity with the Time's Up movement by wearing white roses on the red carpet at tonight's 60th Grammy Awards.
Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Lana Del Rey, Alessia Cara, Kelly Clarkson and Camila Cabello all sported the white flower as they made their ways down the red carpet at New York's Madison Square Garden.
Other stars like Sam Smith, Khalid, Anna Kendrick, Nick Jonas, Sarah Silverman, Eve, Jack and Rachel Antonoff, Reba McEntire, Andra Day, Rita Ora, Little Big Town, Ne-Yo, and the Chainsmokers also showed their support by wearing white roses.
Lorde showed solidarity with her own "version of a white rose," pinning a powerful message to the back of her red dress.
Presenter Janelle Monáe vocalized the message onstage, calling out the ongoing abuse of power — outside of just Hollywood and Washington. Sporting a "Time's Up" pin, she declared: "We come in peace, but we mean business."
Monáe went on to demand equal access and pay for women, before introducing a powerful performance by Kesha, alongside Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Andra Day and Bebe Rexha.
As previously reported, the white rose initiative was launched last week by music industry executives Meg Harkin (Roc Nation) and Karen Rait (Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records).
"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," Harkin said. "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."
