I fucking hate it, the idea that something like that would be trivialized down to a fucking hashtag. I mean, there’s a ton of biphobia — people refuse to accept bisexuality as an actual sexuality. And I’m biracial, but also white-passing, which is a unique perspective. So these kids say, like, “Oh, fucking tri-bi Halsey! She’ll never miss an opportunity to talk about it!” I want to sit them down like a mom and go, “Six months ago you were begging for an artist that would talk about this shit! But then I do, and you say, ‘Oh, not her. Someone else’.

“When I wake up, I just have to be the best version of “me” I can possibly be. It wasn’t like that in the beginning when I was struggling to f*cking keep my head above water every day, just hoping to God that I made the right choices. I worked my fucking ass off for years, and having done that, is what puts me at a liberty to go out and put on this massive show that I’m very proud of.”

my fans’ relationship with my music, because I think the young people
who listen to it are intelligent enough to think for themselves.
