Manchester set to welcome Ocean in June
Meanwhile, Frank Ocean has also been announced for US festival Sasquatch! 2017, taking place on Memorial Day Weekend (May 26-28) in George, Washington. MGMT and Chance the Rapper have also been confirmed.
The actress and screen icon was picking up the prestigious Cecil B Demille Award, when she slammed Trump for his ‘instinct to humiliate’. Trump has since replied in a Twitter rant, calling Streep ‘one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood’.
Streep had said: “There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good, there was nothing good about it, but it was effective and it did its job. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it and I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie, it was real life.”
R&B singer Ocean has since taken to Tumblr to write: “Say it Meryl!”, seemingly showing his support for Streep’s stance. He also posted a new photo of himself in what are his first social media posts of 2017.
