Megan Thee Stallion on Dobbs: ‘Texas really embarrassing me right now’

Megan Thee Stallion and Olivia Rodrigo were both performing at Glastonbury this weekend. Glastonbury is the huge music festival in the UK, and Glastonbury usually gets a lot of American music acts. Glastonbury organizers probably weren’t expecting their American stars to use the stage to speak about abortion, but both Megan and Olivia did just that. Meg even got the crowd to chant “my body, my motherf–king choice.”

“Now, y’all know it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t take a second to call out these stupid ass men,” Megan said. “I mean, God damn. What else you want? Texas really embarrassing me right now, y’all know that’s my home state.”

She then gave the thumbs down, cuing the massive crowd to “boo” the restrictive legislation.

“And I want to have it on the record that the mother—ing hot girls and the hot boys do not support this bull— that y’all campaigning for,” she said before leading the crowd in a chant of “my body, my mother—ing choice.”

Olivia Rodrigo also used her Glastonbury set to speak out against the recent SCOTUS decision earlier on Saturday. “I’m devastated and terrified,” Rodrigo, 19, said before performing Lily Allen’s “F— You.”

“So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this,” she added. “I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have showed us that at the end of the day, they truly don’t give a s— about freedom.”

With Olivia, I’ve always been impressed with how willing she is to be “political” even at her young age. She was 18 years old when she visited the Biden White House and used her fame to promote Covid vaccines for young people, her peers, in a moment with increased vaccine-conspiracies and anti-mask bullsh-t. And now she’s using her platform to talk about abortion. Meanwhile, Megan is 27 years old and a Black woman from Texas. She knows her body has been politicized from birth. I am heartbroken that young women like Megan and Olivia have to go back to pre-Roe times. Oh, and don’t allow these young women to get Dixie Chicks’d – they are criticizing America as they perform overseas (like the Chicks were in 2003). Megan and Olivia just happened to be at Glastonbury – I am sure they will criticize Dobbs wherever they perform.

    I can relate, I too am embarrassed to live in Texas! I just pray that this will spurn more people to vote Abbott and the rest of the Republican f*ckers out!

    • Steph says:

      Don’t be embarrassed, do whatever you can (even just a tweet) to vote these mfers out of your state. You can be proud of where you from while still objecting to it’s policies. That’s the true American way.
      With love,

    • Justwastingtime says:

      Please don’t be embarrassed. They want to divide us, we stand with you and support you.

      Much love from LA.

    They’ll be ok. The Chicks got in trouble because they are a country band and their fan base is more conservative and blindly patriotic. Meghan and Olivia’s fans are younger and more liberal.

    • Lexilla says:

      I hope those fans vote. Please, young people, show us a way out of the mess we’ve created for you.

        Look at how gerrymandered Texas is. Look at the congressional districts in the cities, in Houston where Megan is from. I live in Austin proper but my congressional district includes Killeen, a military town. The district west of me stretches from Fort Worth, 170 miles north of Austin, down to past south Austin, with little parts of Austin carved out. These districts always go red. Yeah we’ll keep voting because what’s the alternative, but realistically there’s nothing we can do.

        “Now”???? This can’t really be the first time….

    I admire both of these women for speaking out (they didn’t have to, given they were performing in the UK). I’ve thought the same about Olivia — she really impresses me with how outspoken she is at such a young age, when she’s still up-and-coming and has something to lose by speaking her mind. I’m glad she’s not modeling herself after Taylor Swift in that way and waiting until she’s 30 and monumentally successful to share an opinion.

    I’m proud of them and yet humiliated as the world watches us in horror. How many Brits and Europeans at Glastonbury were like “mygawd the US is a shitshow”??

  5. Duchess of Hazard says:

    @bettyrose – the UK is a shit show too. The Tories passed a law so that untreated sewage could be dumped in water and now we have polio. On top of that Boris Johnson is looking to be a king for life, talking about changing the constitution

    • bettyrose says:

      Saw a tweet this morning from I think a European dude saying he’d missed the Supreme Court ruling because he’s not “Keeping up with the Kardashians” these days. That’s a proper burn on the U.S. I hate it, and I respect it.

  6. Otaku fairy says:

    So many of these women are under scrutiny and on the shit lists of misogynists already. But they don’t let that stop them from standing up for reproductive rights. No amount of tut-tutting over their ‘respectability’ can erase that. It really is something that should be remembered when women are being dismissed as expendable trash over things they’ve done with their bodies, and being shamed for expressing frustration and pain over misogyny, racism, or other abuse they’ve experienced.

    Meg always shows up for the hotties!
