Fight Against The Wrong
Billie addressed the crowd at the Austin City Festival to revolt against the anti-abortion laws that are snatching away women’s health rights. “When they made that shit a law, I almost didn’t want to do the show because I wanted to punish this f–kin’ place for allowing that to happen here,” she said.
What A Remarkable INFLUENCE
The singer is known to stand against practices that are clear-cut inhumane and are supposed to be knocked right off the table at the earliest. Earlier this year, in the 2021 MET GALA, Billie wore a gorgeous gown by Oscar de la Renta. Wait, this isn’t it. She agreed to promote the brand by wearing their creation only if they promised to go fur-free moving forward! And guess what? They did!

Young And Smart And Woke
Standing against the disgusting abortion laws while ensuring to choose a tone that both comforts and encourages the crowd, the 19-year -old singer said, ” But then I remembered that it’s you guys that are the f–kin’ victims, and you deserve everything in the world. And we need to tell them to shut the f–k up. My body, my f–king choice!”

After the festival was canceled two years in a row, it is no wonder that the people waiting to expect to see a bigger stage and better performances.
