Lily Allen fans have been waiting for this for a long time. Away from the stages for years, the singer made a thunderous and very noticeable return this Saturday, June 24. Invited on the Glastonbury stage by Olivia Rodrigo, she performed her hit Fuck you in front of thousands of fans. For Lily Allen, it was above all a political message sent to the American Supreme Court, which overturned the Roe vs. Wade judgment, which had recognized the right to abortion at the federal level since 1973. “I think she’s the most amazing songwriter, the most amazing artist, the most amazing person, and I’m so lucky that she’s here to sing with me today,” she said. Olivia Rodrigo started. Could you please clap for Miss Lily Allen?”
“I am devastated and terrified that so many women and so many girls are dying from illegal abortions, explained Olivia Rodrigo on stage, before Lily Allen went up to join her. I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Court supreme who showed us that at the end of the day, they really don’t care about freedom.” Even stronger for Lily Allen, she was able to sing in front of her daughters, Marnie Rose and Ethel. On Instagram after her performance, she posted the images of her return to the stage. While writing a moving message. “Very upset. Things are really rotten, but at least my babies got to see their mum performing at Glastonbury with their favorite pop star. They were very proud and so was I,” the singer began.
Lily Allen: “I was addicted to alcohol, drugs and sex”
And to evoke his sobriety: “I did not know if I would be able to go back on a sober stage. If I am honest, part of me thought that all this belonged to the past. I had the most incredible day. Thank you Olivia Rodrigo. (…) Who knows, I may not hang up my microphone yet”. Sober for three years, Lily Allen spoke at length about her addictions in her autobiography, published in 2019. “I was addicted to alcohol, drugs and sex. I was obsessed with the idea of getting confirmation that I was something fuckable that meant nothing to anyone,” the singer wrote. Rid of her old demons, she now enjoys her family, her two daughters and her husband, David Harbour. Moreover, the actor of Stranger Things has not missed anything from the performance of the singer.
