The singer and actress wore all black in support of the #TimesUp movement, saying, "Today is the Golden Globes in Los Angeles, and a lot of the women, with hashtag Times Up, are standing up for equality — to be treated equally and for sexual harassment. And I stand here in black today doing the same from far away. And it's the same thing here in Puerto Rico, we want to be treated equally."

At least 300 actresses, directors, agents, writers, producers and other powerful women in Hollywood signed the Times Up initiative, which includes a legal defense fund to support victims of sexual harassment that's already raised $15 million.

At tonight's 2018 Golden Globes, many attendees are expected to wear black to show solidarity with the women and men who've experienced sexual assault, with stars like Rosario Dawson, Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria calling on viewers to do the same.
