Halsey Covers NYLON’s June/July Music Issue

By Posted on

Singer Halsey shows off a dark new hairstyle on the new June/July cover of NYLON magazine, where she opens up on her childhood, social media, and how success has changed her.

On Her Childhood:

“I went from being a little kid to, like, a very weathered adult in a year. I got kicked out of my house, I traveled the whole country by myself, I found out I had bipolar disorder, I dealt with a sexual assault.… That year was like Murphy’s Law, man.”

On Shaving her Head:

“I saw thousands of tweets from kids who were like, ‘Yeah, that’s it, I don’t want to be her fan anymore.’”

“Hair has also been a big indicator of racial issues in my life. It’s one of the ultimate symbolic struggles for women of color. Shaving my head was important to me because I needed to be able to prove that I could still love myself if I did it.”

On Social Media:

“There are some things I have the power to make a difference in, but people being mean on the internet is not one of them. If I stood up and turned my whole career into a fucking campaign to end cyberbullying, I would get cyberbullied for that.”

On How Success has Changed Her:

“My parents don’t know who the fuck I am anymore. I never did homework, my room was a fucking mess, I didn’t care if my clothes were dirty. I was the most loose, lazy, completely fluid, lucid gypsy woman. I just became such a, forgive me, but such an anal retentive this past year, because I got something that I was scared to lose.”

“I care about my shows so fucking much. If I play a show and it’s not the best show anyone has ever seen, it’s not good enough for me. I’m like that with everything. If I’m not the best person you’ve ever had sex with, we need to do it again, like, I need to fix it.”
