Music Stars Gear Up For 60th Annual Grammy Awards

Numerous music industry stars donned white roses to show their support for the Time's Up movement and bring awareness to sexual harassment in the entertainment industry and beyond.

While on the red carpet, Sting spoke about Time's Up and MeToo, saying it was "an important conversation" and "a time of learning and hopefully, eventually, a time of healing". They encouraged, they helped, they guided me, and scared me away from chokeholds.

The decision to wear a white rose according to the mail sent out was because "white rose historically stands for hope, peace, sympathy and resistance".

"Love So Soft" nominee Kelly Clarkson carries a symbolic white rose on the red carpet. Stars also tweeted their support for the movement ahead of the ceremony.

Lady Antebellum was without the lady as Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood walked the carpet sans Hillary Scott. He says he believes every voice should be heard and that's why he wore the roses.

British singer Sam Smith, who wore on a rose on his lapel, said he was supporting the Time's Up initiative because he believes it'll have a positive impact on the gay community.

"We can pretend we don't care, but we really care", he said of Grammy recognition. Cardi B made a big statement in white with a short tiered dress and train. He is not nominated for any awards tonight as the album wasn't released in time to hit the eligibility cut-off date.

The host of the 60th annual Grammy Awards said he and his wife wanted to have another child so they could have "bigger dinner parties" when they got older. "It's very exciting to be living in a time where people feel fearless enough to speak up and not feel threatened".
