Olivia Rodrigo Brings Out Lily Allen For F**k You Glastonbury Duet Dedicated To Supreme Court
Olivia Rodrigo did not hold back during her Glastonbury set on Saturday, unleashing on the U.S. Supreme Court justices who joined in overturning Roe v. Wade this week.“I’m devastated and terrified,” the Driver’s License singer told the crowd. “So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this.”Rodrigo then introduced the next song: Fuck You by Lily Allen, who then appeared onstage with her (watch the full video above).“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 shit about freedom,” Rodrigo said to wild cheers.“The song goes out to the justices: Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh. We hate you.”Olivia Rodrigo and Lily Allen singing together.While Rodrigo spoke, Allen could be seen giving two middle fingers.The two then launched into an energetic rendition of Allen’s 2009 hit, which includes the lyrics, “Fuck you, fuck you very, very much / ’Cause we hate what you do / And we hate your whole crew.”Rodrigo, a 19-year-old Grammy winner, has been a vocal supporter of abortion rights. Last month, she told fans in Washington, D.C., she was “heartbroken” after seeing a leaked copy of a Supreme Court draft ruling on overturning Roe v. Wade.“What a woman does with her body should never be in the hands of politicians,” she said at the time.“I hope we can use our voices to protect our right to have a safe abortion, which is a right that so many people before us have worked so hard to get.”More on the Supreme Court abortion ruling:Supreme Court strikes down Roe v.

Enemy within? Hardly... most people see why we need unions prepared to strike | Kenan Malik
Membership may have plummeted but the RMT and others play a key role in making Britain fairerThe Tories love the working class. So long as workers can help them win red wall seats. So long as they can paint them as “socially conservative” and use them as alibis for legislation hostile to immigrants or welfare claimants. So long as they can exploit them as props for a fantasy levelling up agenda.But the moment workers take matters into their own hands, assert their collective voice and take action to preserve wages and conditions, they are denounced as militants and the enemy within; even, ludicrously, as “Putin’s friend”, as Tory MP Tobias Elwood claimed about RMT strikers. Tories like the idea of the working class in the abstract, as individuals who might vote for them every five years, but not the working class in the flesh, as people who act collectively to defend their rights.

Paul McCartney performs as he headlines the Pyramid Stage during day four of Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 25, 2022 in Glastonbury, England. (Photo by Samir Hussein/WireImage)Sir Paul McCartney delivered a Glastonbury headline set for the history books on Saturday night, which included a duet with John Lennon and surprise appearances from Bruce Springsteen and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.As he took to the Pyramid Stage, the former Beatle became the festival’s oldest solo headliner, just a week after he celebrated his 80th birthday.To mark the momentous occasion, Sir Paul treated the masses in the crowd to a three hour set of his solo hits as well as beloved tracks by The Beatles and from his later group Wings.He delighted the Glastonbury crowd with a range of classic songs including Hey Jude, Blackbird, Live And Let Die, Ob-La-Di, Ob‐La‐Da and Get Back.Through special technology which could isolate John Lennon’s vocals from old recordings, Sir Paul was able to duet The Beatles’ track I’ve Got A Feeling alongside his former bandmate.Iconic! Take a bow Macca lad! 80 years young and smashing out a 3 hour gig at #Glastonbury2022#PaulMcCartney#McCartney#LennonMcCartney#Macca#Legend♥️♥️♥️ @PaulMcCartney@johnlennon@thebeatlespic.twitter.com/Qyz4Yilytu— Andy McKeown (@AndyMcK1982) June 26, 2022Ahead of the song Here Today, he revealed he had written it after John Lennon died, describing it as a “form of a letter” which he never got to write to his bandmate as he said when they were kids they “couldn’t express too much affection for each other” as they were “too busy trying to be hard and dead cool”.As the song ended, he added: “If you want to tell someone you love them, don’t wait, don’t put it off.”The electrifying show was further amplified as he introduced Dave Grohl to the stage to sing I Saw Her Standing There and Band On The Run.Paul McCartney and Dave Grohl perform on The Pyramid Stage during day four of Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 25, 2022 in Glastonbury, England. (Photo by Harry Durrant/Getty Images)The Foo Fighters frontman revealed he had flown in from the US especially for the appearance, but admitted that the journey was not without a few bumps as he had multiple flights cancelled but noted he would “never miss being on stage” alongside Sir Paul.Sir Paul then announced he had another surprise all the way from the east coast of America as Bruce Springsteen took to the stage.After the US rocker wished Sir Paul a happy 80th birthday, they played Glory Days and I Wanna Be Your Man.Paul McCartney performs with Bruce Springsteen as he headlines the Pyramid Stage during day four of Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 25, 2022 in Glastonbury, England. (Photo by Samir Hussein/WireImage)Sir Paul also remembered his nearest and dearest during the headline set when he dedicated a piano-led version of My Valentine to his wife Nancy and Something to his Beatles’ bandmate George Harrison.Elsewhere in the set, Sir Paul delivered an energetic guitar solo after playing Let Me Roll It.Following the rendition, he explained that he adds that section on at the end as a tribute to the “late great Jimi Hendrix”.He also recounted a fond anecdote about Hendrix, recalling how he put his guitar out of tune while covering the Beatles’ song Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, causing him to ask guitar maestro Eric Clapton who was in the audience to help fix the instrument.During the story, Sir Paul briefly paused to allow festival staff to check on a situation in the crowd and resumed after he was informed it had been sorted.After finishing his main set with Hey Jude, the crowd chanted the famous lyrics back to the singer until he returned for an encore.When he came back to the stage he was waving the Ukrainian flag while members of his band flew a rainbow Pride flag and the Union Jack.Paul McCartney performs on The Pyramid Stage during day four of Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 25, 2022 in Glastonbury, England. (Photo by Harry Durrant/Getty Images)To end the historic set he sang the Beatles’ song The End to a cheering crowd with Springsteen and Grohl also returning to provide guitar solos.Despite the majority of the Glastonbury headline performances being shown live on BBC iPlayer, Sir Paul was not aired on the broadcaster’s channels until an hour into his set.Ahead of his history-making set on the Pyramid Stage, Sir Paul delivered a surprise preview performance at an intimate venue in Frome, Somerset, where he played some of his best-known material.Earlier on Saturday, the Pyramid Stage also hosted a speech from Greta Thunberg where she called on society to take on its “historic responsibility to set things right” with the global climate crisis.Greta Thunberg makes a speech on the Pyramid Stage during day four of Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 25, 2022 in Glastonbury, England. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)The 19-year-old environment activist told the crowd she feels there is still hope for the world to choose a path which is “sustainable” and “leads to a future for everyone”.Her speech was followed by a set by pop rock band Haim, with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds taking to the Pyramid Stage after them.The Pyramid Stage also hosted musical stars Haim, AJ Tracey, Easy Life, Joy Crookes and Les Amazones d’Afrique on Saturday.US pop star Olivia Rodrigo and rapper Megan Thee Stallion both played on the Other Stage, while Mercury-winner Celeste played the West Holts Stage.Billie Eilish gave an electrifying headline performance on the Pyramid Stage on Friday to end the first day of performances at Glastonbury.Her appearance was a landmark moment for the festival as she became Glastonbury’s youngest ever solo headliner.GLASTONBURY:‘Heartbroken’ Lauren Laverne Pulls Out Of Hosting Glastonbury Coverage Following Mother’s Death'A Dark Day For Women': Billie Eilish Protests US Abortion Ruling During Glastonbury SetZelensky Calls Glastonbury ‘Greatest Concentration Of Freedom’ In Festival Video Address

With the end of Roe, the US edges closer and closer to civil war | Stephen Marche
The question is no longer whether there will be a civil conflict in America. The question is how the sides will divide, and who will prevailThe cracks in the foundations of the United States are widening, rapidly and on several fronts. The overturning of Roe v Wade has provoked a legitimacy crisis no matter what your politics.For the right, the leaking of the draft memo last month revealed the breakdown of bipartisanship and common purpose within the institution. For the left, it demonstrated the will of dubiously selected Republican justices to overturn established rights that have somewhere near 70% to 80% political support.Stephen Marche is the author, most recently, of The Next Civil War: Dispatches from the American Future Continue reading...

Timid west must draw a line in the sea and break Vladimir Putin’s criminal blockade | Simon Tisdall
Political courage is required to prevent Moscow weaponising food supplies and risking starvation for millionsHow much longer can the western powers delay decisive action to break Russia’s illegal Black Sea food blockade? The UN warns this reckless maritime siege, now entering its fifth month, threatens “catastrophe on top of catastrophe” for tens of millions of the world’s most vulnerable people dependent on Ukraine’s grain exports. Yet Nato and EU leaders are visibly floundering, disunited and distracted as apocalyptic disaster looms.Questions about the west’s response to the Ukraine invasion – what weapons to send, whether Nato should act more forcibly – must be viewed in this larger context: the necessity of defending fundamental humanitarian principles upon which the UN and the global rules-based order have been based for 75 years. It’s about blameless victims of a manmade atrocity. It’s about decency, about leadership. Continue reading...
