The artist invited Lily Allen to the stage to perform her popular song “F*** you,” which she then dedicated to the five Supreme Court justices who on Friday voted to overturn Roe v. Wade. The 19-year-old singer said, “So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this. I’m devastated and terrified. I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have shown us that at the end of the day, they truly don’t give a s**t about freedom.”
The former Disney Channel star continued, “The song is for the justices: Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, and Brett Kavanaugh. We hate you! We hate you.” Rodrigo and Lilly Allen performed the British singer’s 019 hits. The lyrics include, “F**k you, f**k you very, very much / ’Cause we hate what you do / And we hate your whole crew.”
Rodrigo told her audience, “This is actually my first Glastonbury and I’m sharing this stage with Lily, this is the biggest dream come true ever. But I’m also equally as heartbroken about what happened in America yesterday.” While Rodrigo was speaking to the crowd, Allen could be seen holding up two middle fingers. They joined plenty of other celebrities in speaking out after the Supreme Court announced its decision to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade judgement.
Abortions have been allowed in the United States for the past 49 years under the idea that it is a person’s protected right to choose what to do with their body. Since the ruling was made, states have already prohibited abortions in Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, and South Dakota. States now have the authority to enact their own laws on abortion.
Many other celebs also took to social media to express how disappointed they are with the decision of the Supreme Court Justices. Taylor Swift was one of the celebrities who turned to Twitter to express, “absolutely terrified that this is where we are… that after so many decades of people fighting for women’s rights to their own bodies, today’s decision has stripped us of that.”
