"Your bodies were destined to be controlled and objectified since before you were born." - Lorde at Glastonbury 2022

Instead of Robyn's pre-recorded closing monologue playing during the outro of 'Secrets From A Girl (Who’s Seen It All)' today, Lorde instead addressed the crowd at Glastonbury, calling out the Supreme Court and their recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Lorde said: "Welcome to sadness. The temperature is unbearable until you face it. You wanna know a secret, girls? Your bodies were destined to be controlled and objectified since before you were born. That horror is your birthright. Here’s another secret – you possess ancient strength, ancient wisdom. Wisdom that has propelled every woman who came before you. That wisdom is your birthright. I ask you today, make accessing that wisdom your life’s work, because everything depends on that.... Fuck the Supreme Court."

Lorde also invited Clairo and Arlo Parks onstage with her to sing 'Stoned At The Nail Salon' together live - which you can watch here.
