Lily Allen has hinted that she may not retire from music “just yet” after appearing alongside Olivia Rodrigo at Glastonbury 2022.

During Rodrigo’s set at Worthy Farm over the weekend she brought out Allen to perform ‘Fuck You’, a rendition dedicated to the five members of the US Supreme Court who voted on Friday (June 24) to overturn the Roe vs. Wade ruling, which guaranteed women in the US the right to terminate a pregnancy.

“I’m devastated, I’m terrified and so many women and so many girls are going to die because of this,” Rodrigo told the crowd. “I wanted to dedicate this song to the five members of the supreme court, who showed us that at the end of the day they truly don’t give a shit about freedom.”

The pair then covered Allen’s hit ‘Fuck You’, which you can see footage of below.

Following the set Allen took to Instagram, writing: “Quite emosh. Things are truly messed up, but at least my babies got to see their mamma play and slay Glastonbury with their favourite pop star. They were very proud and so was I.”

“I didn’t know whether I’d be able to get up on a stage like that sober again if I’m honest, a part of me thought it was all in the past,” she added. “I had the most amazing day. Thanks Olivia Rodrigo for having us. You smashed your first Glastonbury.

Discussing her own future in the music industry, Allen added: “Who knows, maybe I won’t hang up my [microphone] just yet.”
