Billie Eilish was visibly taken by the US Supreme Court’s verdict in Glastonbury. It is a “dark day for women”.
Actually, Friday should be an exciting day for Billie Eilish (20): The singer led the line-up of the Glastonbury Festival in the evening as the youngest artist ever. On stage, the 20-year-old was quite upset after the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn abortion rights.
“Dark Day for Women”
It’s “a very, very dark day for women in America,” Eilish said on stage. A user shared a video of the moment on Twitter. She could “hardly bear” to think about the verdict. The singer then dedicated her song “Your Power” to everyone affected by the verdict. The song is about older men taking advantage of their position of power.
The US Supreme Court on Friday morning (June 24) overturned the federal abortion rule known as Roe v. Wade. The landmark judgment had existed since 1973. The decision caused waves in the USA and numerous stars and politicians are now speaking out against it.
