Despite attending quite a few of them in Los Angeles, I haven’t had the chance to spot any famous faces! However, a growing number of artists and musicians are spotted at Black Lives Matter protests, and here are a few pics and videos I have been able to find on Twitter and Instagram.

There is Paramore’s Haylee Williams, Fiona Apple, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Madonna, Harry Styles, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Jamie Foxx, Miguel, Paris Jackson, Chance the Rapper, YG who even filmed a video in the middle of a gigantic protest on Hollywood boulevard. Also seen at protests: Janelle Monáe, Michael B. Jordan, Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Pink, Ellen Page, John Cusack, and probably many others…

I don’t doubt many of them are sincere, especially since many of them are black, but showing up at a protest when you are as famous as some of these people is always double-edged. Do you want to be seen there? Are you doing this for your image? And if you are not black, are you taking advantage of the protests to show how woke you are? Again, I am not saying all these people are showing up at the Black Lives Matter marches for these reasons, I have no doubt people like Chance the Rapper, Kendrick Lamar, Janelle Monáe or Miguel’s engagement in the Black Lives Matter protests are utterly sincere, but it’s something that will always come to mind for plenty of other ones.

At one of these Los Angeles protests, pop star Harry Styles interacted with a protester who thanked him and told him how much his presence meant to her, this ended in a hug (in these scary coronavirus times) and, at least, the scene looked quite genuine.
