Kendrick Lamar closes Glastonbury with powerful plea for women’s rights
BBC News says rapper KENDRICK LAMAR has ended his Glastonbury headline set with a powerful protest at the roll-back of abortion rights in the US.
With blood pouring down his face from a crown of thorns, the star proclaimed: “Godspeed for women’s rights. They judge you, they judge Christ.”
He repeated the phrase over and over with increasing intensity, eventually breaking off mid-sentence and throwing his microphone to the ground before walking off stage.
It was a forceful end to a theatrical performance that was unlike anything the festival has ever witnessed.
Throughout the show, Lamar, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his 2017 album Damn, addressed themes of guilt, greed, loyalty, power, ambition and prejudice, shouldering the audience’s problems by examining his own.
