Lorde Wears Jenny Holzer Poem On Back of Dress at Grammys Instead of White Rose

While most chose to wear or carry a white rose to the 2018 Grammy Awards tonight, Lorde showed her support for the #TimesUp movement with a poem.

The 21-year-old singer-songwriter revealed that she wore a quote attached to the back of her Valentino gown, and showed it off on Instagram.

The quote is from Jenny Holzer‘s “Inflammatory Essays”: “Rejoice! Our times are intolerable. Take coverage for the worst is a harbinger of the best. Only dire circumstance can precipitate the overthrow of oppressors. The old and corrupt must be laid to waste before the just can triumph. Contradiction will be heightened. The reckoning will be hastened by the staging of seed disturbances. The apocalypse will blossom.”

“My version of a white rose – THE APOCALYPSE WILL BLOSSOM – an excerpt from the greatest of all time, jenny holzer,” Lorde captioned her post. See it below!
