Rita Ora and Dua Lipa will wear white roses at the Grammys in support of Time's Up

It comes after stars wore black to the Golden Globes in protest of sexual misconduct within the industry.

CELEBRITIES ATTENDING THIS year’s Grammy Awards ceremony have been asked to wear a white rose in support of the Time’s Up campaign.

It comes after actors and actresses wore black at the Golden Globes, standing in solidarity with victims of sexual assault and harassment.

So far, Halsey, Rapsody, Kelly Clarkson, Cyndi Lauper, Dua Lipa, Rita Ora, and Tom Morello have agreed to participate in the wearing of white roses.

The encouragement comes from a letter penned by a group calling itself Voices in Entertainment, consisting of women in the music industry, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Addressed to its “brothers and sisters in music,” the letter explained the group “is inspired by the #timesup campaign” and is 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.
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.”

#TimesUp was launched by 300 women across the entertainment industry, which not only aims to raise awareness of sexual harassment and assault, but also provide emotional and legal support to victims of sexual misconduct.
