Green Day frontman Billy Joe Armstrong told fans at a concert that he intends to renounce his US citizenship after the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade — a controversial move that eliminates the federal constitutional right to nationwide abortion.
During a performance as part of the band’s Hella Mega Tour at London Stadium in the UK on Friday, Armstrong expressed his frustration when he told the audience: “F**k America. I’m the king renouncing my citizenship. I’m a king coming here.”
He went on to say that there is “too much stupidity in the world to come back to this miserable excuse of a king for a country”, before urging fans to get ready, saying: “You’ll get a lot from me in the coming days.”
Armstrong is one of a number of American artists who have spoken out about the Roe v Wade coup in the past few days. At Britain’s Glastonbury Festival, several artists, including Phoebe Bridgers, Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar and Olivia Rodrigo, made a point of denouncing the decision.
Bridgers led the hymn “F**k the Supreme Court” and criticized “irrelevant motherf**kers trying to tell us what to do with our f**king bodies,” while teen star Olivia Rodrigo brought Lily Allen to the stage and dedicated Allen’s song “F**king”. **k You” before the five Supreme Court justices who voted by majority to overturn the historic provision that has protected abortion as a federal right in the United States for nearly 50 years.
Rodrigo described herself as “shattered and terrified” by the news before telling the Glastonbury crowd that “so many women, many girls are going to die because of this,” then dedicated the track to judges Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch. , Brett Kavanaugh and Emmy Connie Barrett – “Don’t care about freedom,” said Rodrigo.
Lamar, who was one of the biggest stars at the festival on Sunday night, finished his powerful ensemble with a plea for women’s rights, chanting “Oh my God for women’s rights, they judge you, they judge Christ,” while wearing a crown of thorns. Drenched in fake blood.
