Greta Thunberg 'Rickrolled' A Climate Concert & Rick Astley Loved It

Greta dancing and singing karaoke is a thing that actually happened 💀💀💀

Greta Thunberg 'Rickrolled' A Climate Concert & Rick Astley Loved It

We're no strangers to loving Greta Thunberg's fiery speeches, but she tried something different at a climate concert in Stockholm over the weekend.

She danced. And she sang.

The 18-year-old "Rickrolled" a Climate Live audience after a passionate speech about the environment, reviving the Rick Astley meme that the internet is never gonna to give up.

It's hard to believe but several people captured video to prove it.

"We are no strangers to love," she says at the end of her speech, in that same dead-serious tone she often uses.

"You know the rules and so do I," another activist chimes in from off stage.

Then Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" starts playing and another activist joins Thunberg for a full karaoke performance (with dancing) on stage.

The face on the meme, '80s crooner Rick Astley, had nothing but praise for Thunberg afterward.

"Fantastic and Tack så mycket!" he tweeted with a video of the performance. The second part means "Thanks so much" in Swedish.

Astley doesn't shy away from being a mega-hit meme, and you probably wouldn't either if it meant you had more than 1 billion hits on YouTube.

Greta Thunberg joined a group of protestors at the COP26 climate change summit in Scotland and was spotted leading one of the raucous chants.

A video of the Swedish activist shows her singing "you can shove your climate crisis up your arse" in a park in Glasgow, apparently directing the message at world leaders.

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg brought the receipts with her to Milan this week, where she ripped into world leaders for their "empty" words about tackling the climate crisis.

"'Blah blah blah.' ... This is all we hear from our so-called leaders," Thunberg said Tuesday, during a speech at the Youth4Climate summit in Italy.

Greta Thunberg Went Off About 'Fast Fashion' & Said Sustainable Shopping Doesn't Exist

The activist said she hasn't bought something new in YEARS.

On Sunday, August 8, climate activist Greta Thunberg spoke out on social media about the fashion industry and its contribution to "the climate [and] ecological emergency."

She said that the fashion industry is a huge contributor, "not to mention its impact on the countless workers and communities who are being exploited around the world in order for some to enjoy fast fashion that many treat as disposables."
