Olivia Rodrigo, Lily Allen sing 'F**k You' to U.S. Supreme Court for abortion rights reversal

Olivia Rodrigo just doesn't mince words in rebuking exes, traitors, and most recently, the United States Supreme Court.

At the Glastonbury Festival, Rodrigo brought Lily Allen on stage in a surprise appearance to perform the latter's hit F—k You—dedicating it to the justices who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, ending nearly 50 years of constitutional right to abortion.

"I'm very excited for this next song," Rodrigo said before tens of thousands of fans on June 25. "Someone that I absolutely really adore is here today," as she introduced Allen, describing the moment as "the biggest dream come true ever."

Yet the 19-year-old Filipino American pop star said she's also "equally as heartbroken" about the conservative-dominated high court's ruling last June 24, which reversed its landmark 1973 decision, allowing states to severely limit or ban abortion shortly afterward.

“I’m devastated and terrified. So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this," Rodrigo said.

"I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have showed us that, at the end of the day, they truly don’t give a sh*t about freedom," she continued, as the crowd goes wild.

As Rodrigo enumerated the names of the five justices—Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh—Allen can be seen flashing middle fingers before the festivalgoers.

"We hate you! We hate you!" the duo said, as they proceeded singing F—k You.

The F-word-laden 2009 song is widely regarded as a gay anthem, with its lyrics that condemn homophobia.

Other acts of the week-long festival also took to the stage to condemn the U.S. Supreme Court.

During her set, Phoebe Bridgers led chants of "F—k the Supreme Court," saying she's having "the sh*ttiest time" following the decision.

"F—k that sh*t. F—k America and all these irrelevant old motherf—kers trying to tell us what to do with our f—king bodies. F—k it."

Billie Eilish also expressed her disapproval over the decision, describing the news as a "dark day for women in the US."
