President Obama interrupted the Grammys to make a statement more remarkable than any award or dress.
President Obama just dropped into the Grammys out of nowhere with an important message that nearly anyone could cheer for. That's why we think he's the real winner here.
President Obama had a pre-filmed message to share during this year's Grammys, and he won the hearts and respect of viewers everywhere when he put the plight of rape and abuse victims front and center.
He started by stating that almost 1 in 5 women in the U.S. have experienced rape or attempted rape, and that at least 1 in 4 have experienced domestic violence.
"Artists have a unique power to change minds and attitudes, and get us thinking and talking about what matters," Obama said. "And all of us, in our own lives, have the power to set an example. Join our campaign to stop this violence."
