At Glastonbury, the famous festival in the UK, which took place last weekend, Olivia Rodrigo was one of the highlights sudden action Stage Name: Lily Allen. Together they released Allen’s single Damn you from 2009, but not before Rodrigo explained that she had a very specific dedication in mind for the song. For example, the singer gave a powerful speech about the Supreme Court’s decision.
“I am devastated by what happened in America yesterday,” Rodrigo said. “The Supreme Court decided that Roe v. to overthrow Wade. This is the law that guarantees a woman’s right to safe abortion and other basic human rights. I am terrified that so many women and girls will die because of this.
And I want to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have shown us that they really don’t care about freedom in the end. This song goes to the judges: Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, and Brett Kavanaugh. We hate you.”
@employee & lily allen I absolutely adore you. Thank you for standing up for our rights. You are such a nasty bitch pic.twitter.com/9xYPaBvqZV

“Bringing Roe down and banning abortion will never lead to her demise,” politician and activist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. “It makes them even more dangerous, especially for the poor and marginalized. People will die as a result of this decision. And we will never stop until abortion rights are restored in the United States of America.”
Turning Roe and outlawing abortions will never make her go away.
It just makes it more dangerous, especially for the poor and marginalized.
People will die because of this decision. And we will never stop until abortion rights are restored in the USA.

Rodrigo is not alone in challenging the Glastonbury High Court decision. Billie Eilish makes herself heard during her performance. “Today is a very dark day for women in America. I can’t think about it anymore,” said the singer.
