What else should I know?
The music industry hasn't been rocked with as many public allegations of sexual misconduct as Hollywood, but insiders are still seeking to show solidarity with the #MeToo movement.
Music mogul Russell Simmons is perhaps the biggest artist in the industry to be named: 15 women have accused Simmons of sexual misconduct, though the producer has denied all claims, People reported.
Key executives have called on artists and employees to wear a white rose on Sunday in support of 'Time's Up,' the anti-harassment group.
Among those artists who have already confirmed they will wear the rose include Dua Lipa and Halsey, who recently read an emotional poem detailing sexual abuse at a Women's March rally.
