While the President-elect’s Inaugural Committee continues to scramble to find performers, the Women’s March on Washington has secured a star-studded lineup.
Maxwell will headline performances at Saturday’s march along with Janelle Monáe and African icon Angelique Kidjo. There’s also a long list of others who plan to support the cause and the Beyhive is buzzing that Beyonce, who endorsed the march, could join the peaceful protest.
Maxwell, known for his legion of loyal female fans, explained his reason for participating with one perfect sentence about the women of this world. “Were it not for the limitless depths of their love we would not be the men that we are.”
The March is a women-led grassroots movement that will bring people of all genders and backgrounds together to take a stand on social justice and human rights issues ranging from race, ethnicity and gender to religion, immigration and health care. Over 200 sister marches are also being planned across the country. “We are here because women are every bit as capable if not more able to pursue any goal they set forth for themselves,” the R&B singer added.
It has quickly become clear that the peaceful protest will be the biggest event of inaugural weekend. Early estimates predicted a crowd in the range of 200,000 but now the city is bracing for perhaps double that many. And when you include marchers in other cities around the globe, the number is expected to swell to more than one million.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
