If you plan to tune into this Sunday’s GRAMMY Awards, expect to see a lot of artists donning a white rose, as a symbol of solidarity for the #TimesUp movement.
In case you missed it, so far artists like Halsey, Kelly Clarkson, Cyndi Lauper, Dua Lipa, Rita Ora, Tom Morello and others have confirmed that they will be showing their support with the rose, which was chosen for several reasons, including white being the color the suffragettes wore during protests, and also the color Hillary Clinton wore during Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The idea for the rose came from music execs Meg Harkins and Karen Raitt, after they realized the GRAMMYs needed a way to show their support for the movement against sexual harassment. "Music artists have a lot of impact,” Raitt says. “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."
