Billie Eilish Criticizes Roe V. Wade Ruling Mid-Performance

Billie Eilish took to the main stage at the Glastonbury Festival just yesterday, mere hours after the news that the U.S. Supreme Court decided to overturn the Roe v. Wade ruling.

She had a lot of thoughts about the matter, expressing them both on stage and in pre-show interviews, unafraid to let the world know exactly where she stood and how devastating the news was for her.

Billie Eilish made quite the statement during her show last night.

During her headlining performance at the Glastonbury Festival last night, she and her brother Finneas performed a duet of her song 'Your Power' as a protest against the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

"Today is a really, really dark day for women in the US."

"I'm just going to say that because I can't bear to think about it any longer at this moment," she announced before launching into the song.

Those who attended the show noted on social media how powerful the performance that followed was, and how relevant the song choice was seeing as it's about a man abusing his power over a woman he's dating.

She also spoke about the matter in an interview earlier that same day.

She sat down with NME and explained how annoyed she'd been by the Depp-Heard trial's popularity while the Roe v. Wade debate was happening.

"I was in this state of depression, losing my own rights to my own body, and then I’d go on the internet and it would be people giving their take on this trial," she explained.

She was very heated about the subject.

“Who [expletive] gives a [expletive]?" she continued, "Women are losing rights for their bodies, so why are we talking about celebrities’ divorce trials? Who gives a [expletive]? Let them figure it out on their own. The internet bothers the [expletive] out of me sometimes."

Her anger was more than justified.

The overturning of Roe v. Wade is devastating news for people across the country, especially considering roughly half the states will likely implement either bans or heavy restrictions on abortions in the following months.

These issues greatly affect millions of American citizens, so some of them getting publically mad about it is more than understandable.
