Olivia Rodrigo made a statement at her inaugural Glastonbury Festival on Saturday when she brought surprise guest Lily Allen to sing her 2009 hit “F—You,” and dedicated the anthem to the Supreme Court justices responsible for the Fall voted by Roe v Wade just the day before.
Introducing the “incredible songwriter and artist” Allen on stage, Rodrigo, 19, said: “Today is a very, very special day. This is actually my first Glastonbury and I’m sharing the stage with Lily which is the biggest dream come true ever. But I’m also just as heartbroken by what happened in America yesterday.”
The decision made by SCOTUS on Friday has effectively ended recognition of a fundamental right Abortion, in effect since 1973, giving individual states the power to allow, restrict, or ban the practice of health altogether.
“The Supreme Court has ruled to overturn Roe v Wade, a law guaranteeing a woman’s right to a safe abortion, another fundamental human right,” Rodrigo said to the thousands of fans who made their debut appearance at the huge open air -watched the show.

“I’m devastated and scared, and so many women and so many girls are going to die because of it, and I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who, at the end of the day, showed us that they really don’t give a fuck about freedom.”
Thunderous applause thundered through the audience as Rodrigo addressed the crowd just before sunset at Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England.
“This song goes to judges Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh,” the Sour singer said. “We hate you!”
Lily Allen enthusiastically added before throwing up her middle finger, “We hate you!”
Allen jumped into a version of her popular anthem as she strutted around the stage, microphone in hand, to sing the dance-pop hit she wrote in 2009 about former President George W. Bush.

Lyrics included: “Do you, do you get a little kick from being petty? You want to be like your father, it’s recognition you’re looking for/ Well, you don’t find it that way.”
“Do you really like living a life that’s so hateful? ‘Cause where your soul should be, there’s a hole.
“F— you (F— you), f— you very very much/ Because we hate what you do/ And we hate your whole crew/ So please don’t keep in touch.”
She later reflected on the show the following day with an Instagram post featuring footage from the performance.
“So overwhelmed to see this stuff in the car home,” she wrote in a story shared with her millions of followers. “So many emotions. My babies saw their mama hit Glastonbury with their favorite pop star today.”
Allen shares daughters Marnie Rose and Ethel Mary with ex Sam Cooper. She married Stranger Things star David Harbor in September 2020.

Billie Eilish, who became the festival’s youngest solo headliner during her Friday night performance in Glastonbury, never directly referenced the landmark SCOTUS decision by name, instead dedicating her anthem ‘Your Power’ to those affected. The song describes abusive relationships by older men who take advantage of their positions of power.
“Today is a really, really dark day for women in the United States,” Eilish, 20, told the crowd. “I’m only going to say this because I can’t bear to think about it any longer.”
Another American actress, Phoebe Bridgers, expressed her anger at the verdict: “Honestly, [the festival is] how super surreal and funny but i’m having such a shitty day.”
Bridgers then began a chant during their show: “Who wanna say ‘f— the Supreme Court’ on three?”
The longtime public health advocate continued, “F— that shit. “F— America. Like, f— you. All these irrelevant old moms trying to tell us what to do with our damn bodies.”
