Olivia Rodrigo is “devastated and terrified” after the Supreme Court struck down the constitutional right to abortion in the US.
The 19-year-old pop star appeared at the Glastonbury music festival on Saturday, welcoming fellow singer Lily Allen to the stage for a duet of their 2008 hit ‘F*** You’ as a reaction to the ouster of the historic Roe. Wade sentence.
Olivia said: “I am devastated and terrified. So many women and so many girls are going to die for this. I wanted to dedicate the following song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have shown us that at the end of the day, they really don’t give a shit about freedom. The song is for the judges: Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh. We hate you! We hate you.”
However, the ‘driver’s license’ hitmaker, who rose to global fame in 2020 after her music went viral on Instagram, was thrilled to be at the annual music festival at Worthy Farm sharing the stage with Lily, who could be seen swearing with her. middle fingers as Olivia rhymed the names of the judges.
She told the crowd: “This is actually my first Glastonbury and I am sharing this stage with Lily, this is the biggest dream come true. But I am also equally heartbroken by what happened in America yesterday!”
The song, which was written by Lily in 2008 and included on her second album ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’, was initially inspired by then-President George W. Bush, whom Lily described as a “f***** * a********.”
Some of the lyrics include: “F*** you, f*** you very much
We hate what you and we hate your whole team so please don’t keep in touch.”
