Olivia Rodrigo did not tarnish her words when addressing the Supreme Court’s vote to overturn Roe v Wade via Dobbs v Jackson on Friday at the Glastonbury Music Festival in England.
She said, “I’m devastated and horrified that so many women and so many girls are going to die because of this,” and directed Lily Allen to sing “F-You,” which they dedicated to each of the judges who voted in favor of the decision.
She continued, “I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who showed us that in the end they do nothing about freedom.” “This song goes to the judges: Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Connie Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh. We Hate You.”
Rodrygo has often been outspoken about equal rights on stage. In May, after a draft Supreme Court decision on Dobbs v. Jackson was leaked, she spoke about abortion during a concert in Washington, D.C.
“Because we’re in Washington, I couldn’t miss the opportunity to express how sad I am about the potential Supreme Court decision,” she said. Our bodies should not be in the hands of politicians. I hope we can raise our voices to protect our right, to a safe abortion, a right that so many people before us have worked so hard to obtain.”
The “Good 4 U” singer wasn’t the only one to take up the Glastonbury Supreme Court’s decision. Phoebe Bridgers led hymn From the “P-Supreme Court” during her group.
“In all honesty, it just sounds so surreal and fun. But I’m having, like, the dirtiest day,” she told the audience. “Are there any Americans here?” I continued. “Who wants to say ‘P-Supreme Court’ about three?”
Billie Eilish also performed her song “Your Power” with a comment about the decision saying, “Today is really a really dark day for women in the States, I’m just going to say it because I can’t stand thinking about it anymore.”
