Kendrick Lamar Closes Glastonbury With A Plea For Women’s Right Covered In Blood
As he closed out the festival while donning a handcrafted crown of thorns adorned with 8,000 diamonds, Kendrick Lamar gave his first Glastonbury performance in electric fashion.
The 35-year-old US rapper brought performance art to Worthy Farm with his explosive act. He relied primarily on theatrics and had a supporting dance crew the entire time.
Without the customary special guests, Kendrick quickly moved through his songs, pausing only occasionally toward the finish.
The audience applauded the headliner’s performance throughout, but probably the biggest response came during the show’s conclusion when he appeared to criticize the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade with his final words.
Towards the end of his performance, Kendrick with blood all over his face and in his shirt shouted: “They judge me; they judge Christ. Godspeed for women’s rights” repeatedly and then suddenly left the stage following an electrifying cheer from the audience.
