Billie Eilish is talking up in Texas.

The musician—who was simply revealed to be showing as Sally in a live model of The Nightmare Before Christmas—placed on a large set at Austin City Limits Music Festival on Saturday, and she or he had a message for the Texans in attendance about the state’s recent abortion legal guidelines. 

“When they made that shit a law, I almost didn’t want to do the show, because I wanted to punish this fucking place for allowing that to happen here, but then I remembered that it’s you guys that are the fucking victims. And you deserve everything in the world.”

Of course, Billie was alluding to the new legislation within the state that bans all abortions after six weeks of being pregnant, which has been on the forefront of criticism in recent weeks. During the second in her set, Eilish showcased a graphic that read “Bans Off Our Bodies” as she shared her ideas.

“We need to tell them to shut the fuck up,” Billie said, telling the gang to place their center fingers within the air. “My body, my fucking choice.”

Last month, the the U.S. Department of Justice sued Texas over its new legislation, with Attorney General Merrick Garland calling it “clearly unconstitutional under long-standing Supreme Court precedent.”
