Olivia Rodrigo & Lily Allen Dedicate 'F*ck You' Performance TO SCOTUS

'Cause we hate what you do and we hate your whole crew.'
After a forced two-year hiatus, the annual indie sleaze convention (aka Glastonbury Festival) returned in full force this weekend.
However, for many of England's Kate Moss-esque festival goers, the weekend was certainly damped by the news that the Supreme Court of the United States had overturned the historic Roe vs. Wade ruling.
The overturning of the landmark decision was a blow to anyone with a uterus. Across the US, many took to the streets to protest the reversal, however many of rock and roll's most famous faces took to the Glastonbury stages to show their support in their own way: through music.

Phoebe Bridgers incited the chant ​​'f*ck the Supreme Court' at her set and Billie Eilish debuting her new song 'TV' which features incredibly poignant lyrics about the state of the world like "the internet's gone wild watching movie stars on trial / while they're overturning Roe v. Wade".
However one of the most powerful (and least subtle) protests came in the form of pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo joining forces with iconic 2000s Brit-pop pioneer, Lily Allen, to perform their rendition of 'F*ck You'.
Watch Olivia Rodrigo and Lily Allen perform 'F-ck You' at Glastonbury below.
For the girls, gays and theys growing up in the noughties, this rebellious (albeit exlplcit) anthem summarised our teen angst against the institution, so it only made sense for Olivia and Lily to perform their own version during one of the most draconian times in US history.
With lyrics like "you're just some racist who can't tie my laces", "your point of view is medieval" and of course "f*ck you very, very much", we're sure that SCOTUS got the message loud and clear.
During her set, Olivia told the crowd that sharing the stage with Lily was "the biggest dream ever" while also sharing her angst and heartbreak over the ruling.
"The Supreme Court decided to overturn Roe v. Wade, which is a law that ensures a woman's right to a safe abortion," the signer said. "I'm devastated and terrified that so many women and so many girls are going to die because of this," she added.
"I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have shown us that at the end of the day they don't really care about freedom."
Oliva then continued to read out the names of the justices who voted to overturn the ruling while Lily flipped the bird to the crowd.
"We hate you", both stars shouted. Now that's punk.
Of course, Glastonbury has seen its fair share of protests in the past, including the first time Lily Allen performed the song at the festival in 2009, dedicating her set to the British Nationalist Party.
After the set, Lily took to Instagram to share how emotional the performance was for her, especially since she's reaching the three years sober mark.
"I didn't know whether I'd be able to get up on a stage like that sober again, and if I'm honest, a part of me thought it was all in the past," she wrote.
Thankfully for us, it's not time for Lily to hang her hat (or her eensy weensy Chanel jumpsuit) up yet either.
Now, we're just wondering how we can get our hands on Olivia's Avril Lavigne-esque Copova Lowena set.
