Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu, Maxwell And More To Perform At Kavanaugh D.C. Protest

The protest will take place Thursday, Oct. 4 in Washington, D.C.

 

Alicia Keys, Maxwell, Erykah Badu and more have joined an A-List line up to perform at Thursday's (Oct. 4) "Protest Kavanaugh” event in Washington, D.C.

The potential lifetime appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has caused a divide in the country ever since allegations of sexual misconduct have been made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. The event, which has the hashtag 'Bravery Is Contagious' urges citizens to call their senators expressing their disapproval of Kavanaugh before the confirmation.

"If there was ever a moment when the voice of the people can come together in concert to change the fate of our nation, this is it. Arm in arm, organized and ready, every child, woman, and man, must take to the streets to protest this nomination. The legitimacy of the nation's highest court is at stake as-is the future of our country," the invite for the event reads.

The gathering comes on the heels of a nationwide walk out, which was staged last Monday in support of Dr. Ford. (Sept. 24)

"We anticipate a vote on the Senate floor to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as early as Friday,” organizers write on the event’s official website. “It is critical we make our voices heard on the ground in Washington.”

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
