Kendrick Lamar closes Glastonbury in dramatic style, wearing diamond crown of thorns and making powerful plea for women’s rights covered in blood

Kendrick Lamar’s debut performance at Glastonbury was delivered in electrifying style as the rapper brought the festival to a close wearing a custom crown of thorns, covered in 8,000 diamonds.The US rapper, 35, who leaned heavily on theatrics with a group of backing dancers throughout, brought performance art to Worthy Farm with his blistering set.Without the usual special guests, Kendrick whipped through his songs without too much pause for thought until near the end.In a performance that was met with cheers from the crowd throughout, perhaps the biggest reaction of all came right at its climax when the headliner seemingly condemned the US Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v Wade with his final words.The votes of five US Supreme Court Justices on Friday ended America’s constitutional right to abortion by overturning the landmark ruling.At the end of his 90-minute set, and with blood pouring down his face, Kendrick declared: ‘They judge me; they judge Christ.
