no title

This is some powerful stuff.

If you've been paying attention to national news lately, then you're aware that America is currently suffering from an increase in black deaths at the hands of police.

While victims like Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and Trayvon Martin may never get justice at this rate, Alicia Keys is done with seeing her brothers and sisters gunned down by people who are supposed to be there to help.

But Alicia couldn't just do this alone… she recruited help from Beyoncé, Rihanna, Chris Rock, Taraji P. Henson, Pink, Janelle Monáe, Pharrell, Common, Rosario Dawson, Queen Latifah, Kevin Hart, Lenny Kravitz, Zoë Kravitz, Jada Pinkett Smith, Bono, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine, A$AP Rocky, Chance the Rapper, Talib Kweli, Swizz Beatz, Van Jones, and Tracee Ellis Ross to make this the most star-powered PSA possible!

However, the Pretend singer one-upped Taraji's outfit by rocking a particularly seXXXy Philipp Plein ensemble. We mean, Tinashe was nearly naked on the red carpet as she showed off her butt (below)!
