Olivia Rodrigo dedicates Lily Allen’s F-You to the Supreme Court in Glastonbury

Olivia Rodrigo and Lily Allen joined forces to bring “F-You” to Glastonbury with a performance dedicated to the U.S. Supreme Court justices who overthrew Roe v. Wadethe landmark case of 1973 that protected a woman’s choice to have an abortion.

The “Drivers License” hitmaker introduced Allen to the scene with love on Saturday (June 25), just before he threw some heartbreaking words at the Supreme Court in front of a crowd of thousands of festival-goers.

“There’s one that I absolutely love is here today,” Rodrigo told the audience. “I think she’s the most incredible songwriter, the most incredible artist, the most incredible person, and I’m so lucky she’s singing here with me today. Would you please give it up for Miss Lily Allen?”

With Allen by his side, Rodrigo then addressed the Supreme Court ruling, which now lets states decide what a woman can do with her body. (It is expected that abortion will be illegal in at least 16 states in the future, and if abortion restrictions are considered, that number goes up to 23 states.)

“I’m crushed and scared that so many women and so many girls have to die because of this,” Rodrigo said. “I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have shown us that in the end they do not care – about freedom.”

“This song goes out to Judges Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh. We hate you,” Rodrigo declared, as Allen gracefully turned them away.

The two sang Allen’s 2009 single “F— You” from her It’s not me, it’s you album.
