To Support The Time's Up Movement, Stars Are Encouraged To Wear White Roses To The 60th Grammy Awards

Date January 31, 2018 11:28

A few weeks ago, it was the Golden Globes, and celebrities wore all-black to show their support to the fight against sexual harassment and inequality.

On January 28, music stars will be walking the red carpet wearing white roses for the same cause.

The Grammy Awards

The annual award ceremony organized by the Recording Academy is quite old. Dubbed the most prestigious recognition in the music industry, it aims to honor the best artists in several categories.

The 60th Grammy Awards ceremony is slated to hold at Madison Square Garden, New York with James Corden as its host. It will also be broadcasted live on The CBS Network.

This year’s dress code and the Time’s Up movement

Earlier this year, a group of Hollywood celebrities, including actresses, writers, agents, producers, and directors, founded the Time’s Up initiative. The aim is to finally take a stand against sexual harassment and inequality in the movie industry.

The message of the movement influenced the all-black dress code at the Golden Globes this year, and now, it appears that the 2018 Grammys will continue the initiative.

A group of women led by Meg Harkins expressed their support to the Time’s Up movement and encouraged singers as well as attendees to wear white roses to the event.

2018 Grammy Awards nominations

Just a few days ago, the list of nominees for this year's event was released. Jay-Z takes the lead with a total of 8 nominations. He is followed closely by Kendrick Lamar who has 7 nominations and Bruno Mars with 6 nominations.

R&B singer and songwriter, SZA, emerged as the only female with 5 nominations.

We can't wait for the big day to see who goes home with the award. One thing for sure is that it is going to be an awesome event on Sunday.
