Backstage at Billboard Women in Music, we asked the stars of the night how they felt about the #metoo movement. Here is what they said.
R&B star Ciara spoke backstage at Billboard’s Women in Music event last week about the the importance of women standing up for each other during the explosive #metoo movement.
“There are so many women that stand up for what they believe in and aren’t afraid to fight for what they believe in and fight for their rights,” she said. “I just want to say I salute you and keep on being courageous.”
Ciara’s comments come amid a slew of sexual assault allegations levied at powerful men, particularly in the music and film industries. The singer acknowledged the need for solidarity now more than ever, saying, “Let’s all continue to come together and unite because we are stronger together.”
