Olivia Rodrigo, Lily Allen and other musicians have expressed shock at the recent ruling revoking Roe v. Wade.
The crowd at the Glastonbury Festival went wild when Rodrigo performed a flaming version of Allen’s 2009 famed “F— You” with Allen herself.
“I’m devastated and terrified that so many women and so many girls are going to die because of this,” the hit singer stated. “I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have showed us that at the end of the day, they truly don’t give a s— about freedom.”
The camera captured Allen pointing her middle finger while Rodrigo mentioned the justices’ names – Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, and Brett Kavanaugh.
“We hate you!” she shouted ahead of her, and Allen started her song.
Rodrigo presented Allen to the crowd in amazing terms, naming her “the most incredible songwriter, the most incredible artist, the most incredible person.”
The two singers were not alone in their criticism of the Supreme Court’s recent decision to drop federal protections for abortion rights that have been installed since the 1970s. Phoebe Bridgers ushered the crowd during her performance on Friday to chant “f— the Supreme Court.”
Lizzo revealed on Friday that she and Live Nation would team up to donate $500,000 each towards Planned Parenthood and the National Network of Abortion Funds’ mission of providing healthcare services for women across America.
Rage Against the Machine vowed to allocate its earnings from two concerts in Wisconsin and Illinois – they have raised $475,000 thus far – to reproductive health care in those states.
Many more have expressed their protest against the decision.
