Headling musicians called out the Supreme Court over their reversal of 1973’s landmark abortion ruling during their time on stage over the weekend.
New school pop star Billie Eilish, said “Today is a really dark day for women in the U.S,” during her Friday night performance at the five-day Glastonbury Festival in England.
The same day, Green Day’s aging pop-punk Billie Joe Armstrong renounced his American citizenship and told the festival’s crowd that he was moving to the United Kingdom.
“F**k America. I’m f***ing renouncing my citizenship. I’m f**king coming here,” he said during his set. “There’s just too much f***ing stupid in the world to go back to that miserable f***ing excuse for a country.”
Indie-rocker Phoebe Bridgers also expressed her frustration with the Supreme Court’s ruling during her Friday performance at the festival.
“In all honesty, [the festival is] like super surreal and fun, but I’m having like the sh*t day.” she told fans. “F**k that sh*t. F**k America. Like, f**k you. All these irrelevant old motherf**ks trying to tell us what to do with our f**king bodies.”
She asked the crowd if there were any Americans in attendance, and led them in a chant of “F**k the Supreme Court.”
Teenage pop princess Olivia Rodrigo echoed the sentiment when she dedicated her 2019 hit “F**k You” to the Supreme Court the same night.
“This song goes out to the justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, and Brett Kavanaugh,” she shouted. “We hate you!”
“The Supreme Court decided to overturn Roe v Wade which is a law that ensures a woman’s right to a safe abortion, another basic human right,” Rodrigo told fans.
“I’m devastated and terrified and so many women and so many girls are going to die because of this and 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 s**t about freedom.”
