Olivia Rodrigo Sings ‘F— You’ to Supreme Court Justices at Glastonbury Festival

Olivia Rodrigo used her set at England's Glastonbury Festival to defend the US Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade on Friday, using the same words he used to criticize Phoebe Bridgers at the festival the day before.
"I'm devastated and scared. So many women and so many girls are going to die because of it,” she said, as reported in the Guardian. "I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who showed us that they really don't give a damn about freedom, after all. The song is for the judges: Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh. We hate you! We hate you."

Then she brought out the British singer Lily Allen and performed the song "Fuck You".
"This is actually my first Glastonbury and I'm sharing this stage with Lily, it's the biggest dream that has ever come true," said Rodrigo. "But I'm just as heartbroken about what happened in America yesterday," Rodrigo said.

Phoebe Bridgers, who has spoken openly about the fight for abortion rights since news of Roe v. Wade was first leaked by the Supreme Court earlier this year, made no secret of her feelings during her performance at Glastonbury in England on Friday.
"Honestly, [the festival is] super surreal and fun, but I'm having such a shitty day," she told the crowd. "Are there Americans here? What do you want to say 'Fuck the Supreme Court' to three?' she cried, before leading a chant of 'Fuck the Supreme Court!' She concluded: "Fuck that shit. Fuck America. Like, fuck you. All these irrelevant old motherfuckers trying to tell us what to do with our fucking bodies.”
During her headlining set on Friday, Billie Eilish said: "Today is a really, really dark day for women in America. I'm only going to say this because I can't bear to think about it any longer right now."
