Kendrick Lamar ignites women’s rights chant at Glastonbury festival

Kendrick Lamar’s European trek continued in the United Kingdom on Sunday (June 26), as Mr. Morale made a huge statement during his headlining set at Glastonbury Festival 2022.

Originally slated for 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak delayed the festival and K-Dot’s performance in Pilton, Somerset, England. Debuting more live renditions of Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Lamar shut down Glastonbury with a defiant and moving message — publically responding to the overruling of Roe v. Wade.

Along with performing “N95” and “Silent Hill,” K-Dot’s final track “Savior” saw him protest: “Godspeed for women’s rights. They judge you, they judge Christ.” Donning a crown of thorns — which contain over 8,000 handset diamonds designed by Tiffany & Co. — K-Dot’s forthcoming “The Big Steppers Tour” seemingly positions Lamar as music’s “messiah,” advocating for women’s rights across the pond.

“‘Savior’ is my favorite record off the album. It’s the true meaning of imperfection. Imperfection is beautiful. I wear this crown as a representation so you never forget one of the greatest prophets to walk this earth. They judge you and they judged Christ.”

Seen wearing the same crown at Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring-Summer 2023 Show on June 23 in Paris, the event majorly paid homage to Virgil Abloh — the late creative visionary and former artistic director for Louis Vuitton menswear. The fashion icon’s name blared throughout the show, as Lamar ad-libbed “Long Live Virgil” rapping “Count Me Out” sitting next to pgLang co-founder Dave Free. Lamar also took the stage at Milano Summer Festival in Italy that same day.

“The Big Steppers Tour” is set to scatter the globe starting in mid-July, as K-Dot and pgLang counterparts Tanna Leone and Baby Keem embark on the 65-stop trek that will last until late-December. Amid the release of his Spotify-produced short film in Ghana and upcoming performance at Rolling Loud Miami, Kendrick is poised to be in the public eye for quite some time.
