Lily Allen hits at not retiring “just yet” after Olivia Rodrigo gig at Glastonbury

After performing Fuck You alongside Olivia Rodrigo at Glastonbury, Lily Allen revealed she might not be retiring soon after all.

After a surprise duet with Olivia Rodrigo of her 2009 hit, Fuck You at Glastonbury over the weekend, UK singer-songwriter Lily Allen posted a heartwarming reflection of her experience on Instagram, and confessed that she may not be retiring from music “just yet.”

The duo’s decision to cover Lily’s track followed the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade. Olivia said to the audience, “this song goes out to the justices, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barret, and Brett Kavanaugh. We hate you.”

Following the show, Lily Allen took to Instagram to express her thoughts: “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.” She continued, “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. Who knows, maybe I won’t hang up my [microphone] just yet.”
