The 60th Annual Grammy Awards have just about wrapped up, with your favourite musicians including Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, and Childish Gambino scoring awards for their work in the past year.
While the night's most-talked about moments are sure to include Kendrick's killer opening performance, and Pink's raw delivery of her song Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken, some fans have been left wondering why many of the stars walked the red carpet with white roses.
Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora, Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, Pink, Cardi B, Trevor Noah, Anna Kendrick and more all either wore or carried white roses as they arrived at the Grammys. The reason? The stars were showing their continued support for the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements against sexual misconduct in the industry.
The protest was organised by Voices in Entertainment, a group of 15 women from the music industry.
"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," the group wrote in a letter to Grammy attendees. "We choose the white rose because historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy and resistance."
Time's Up supported the move, tweeting out their love for the white rose.
"A white rose symbolizes respect, pays homage to new beginnings and expresses hope for the future. We like the sound of that."
