Olivia Rodrigo and Lily Allen have stood together with other musicians in their outcry over the recent Court ruling that repealed Roe v. Wade.
Rodrigo performed a fiery version of his hit single “F— You” at the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday, calling Allen on stage to join her.
“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.”
Rodrigo said the names of five supreme court justices – Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, and Brett Kavanaugh, while Allen pointed her middle finger in an act that could be seen as resistance against the decision.
“We hate you!” she shouted ahead of her, and Allen started her song.
Rodrigo presented Allen to the crowd in amazing terms, describing her as “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 judgment, which has dropped federal protections for abortion rights that have been installed for 50 years. 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! The money will go towards Planned Parenthood as well as the National Network of Abortion Funds.
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.
