Bak i February, Fiona Apple and Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson teamed up for a duet of Lesley Gore’s ‘You Don’t Owe Me’ in LA.
The cover took place at the city’s third annual GIRLSCHOOL Festival, which aims to benefit the Los Angeles Girls Rock Camp supporting women-fronted-bands and artists.
Apple’s t-shirt featured the slogan ‘Kneel Portnow’, referencing the Grammy president Neil Portnow, who recently claimed that women need to “step up” after the 2018 ceremony was criticised for its gender disparity.
The acclaimed singer-songwriter put together the minute-long piece with composer Michael Whalen – featuring a piano loop, marching drums and the memorable protest chant of “we don’t want your tiny hands, anywhere near our underpants,” against Trump’s infamous allegations of past sexual assault and the leaked tape in which he urged someone to “grab them by the pussy” in conversation.
