Janelle Monáe Blasts Supreme Court From BET Awards Stage: ‘F– You’

Janelle Monáe blasted the Supreme Court live on stage at the BET Awards on Sunday night.
Monáe, who was a presenter, took the stage and held up the middle finger as they faced the Supreme Court, which on Friday returned a ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization that overturned Roe v. Wade.
"I want to give a special, special shout out to Black women, Black queer artists, and Black non-binary artists," the entertainer said. "These artists make art on our own terms, own our truths, and express ourselves freely and without apology in a world that tries to control and police our bodies, my body, and our choices, my choices."

"I know right now we're celebrating like we should — we absolutely deserve to celebrate — especially now," continued Monáe. "We must celebrate our art by protecting our rights and truths."
Monáe is one of several artists to blast the Supreme Court from a stage over the weekend over the court's decision. Phoebe Bridgers responded by leading the audience at Glastonbury Music Festival in England with a chant of "F— the Supreme Court" during her performance.

At the same music festival, Olivia Rodrigo and Lily Allen dedicated the song "F—You" to the court.
"I'm devastated and scared that so many women and so many girls are going to die because of this," Rodrigo said, bringing out Allen.
"I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who showed us that they really don't care about freedom in the end," she continued. "This song goes to the judges: Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh. We hate you."
