Lily Allen was overwhelmed to return to the Glastonbury stage.
the singer, 37, sang her 2009 song “F*** You” with Olivia Rodrigo.
After three years of sobriety, Lily Allen was overwhelmed to return to the Glastonbury stage.
With Olivia Rodrigo, 19, the singer, 37, sang her 2009 song “F*** You”, in response to the US Supreme Court’s ruling that Roe v. Wade should be overturned, making abortions illegal for millions of women in America.
After the unexpected performance, she posted on Instagram about how glad she was to be performing after overcoming her addictions.
Allen, who is married to the 47-year-old actor David Harbour from the Netflix series “Stranger Things,” attended Glastonbury with her two kids Ethel and Marnie Rose. Allen was thrilled that her daughters got to witness her perform.
Alongside footage taken from her Worthy Farm performance, she said: “So overwhelmed watching this stuff back in the car home. So many emotions. My babies got to see their mamma slay Glastonbury with their favorite pop star today.
“I actually made them proud! And with nearly 3 yrs of sobriety under my belt. So happy.”
Allen has previously talked openly about her difficulties with addiction and how she eventually gave up alcohol and drugs.
Rodrigo used Olivia’s spot on The Other Stage to express her horror and utter sadness at the Roe v. Wade decision.
Before Allen arrived on stage, the singer declared “Today is a very, very special day. This is actually my first Glastonbury, and I’m sharing the stage with Lily which is the biggest dream come true ever. But I’m also equally as heartbroken.
“I’m devastated and terrified [by the ruling] and so many women and 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 showed us at the end of the day they truly don’t give a s*** about freedom.”
