No matter how hard someone tries, it’s almost impossible to not stumble upon a bad comment, whether it’s verbally spoken or written online. People around the world have to decide whether or not to read the comments they get everyday, and so does Halsey. Just because she’s a star, it doesn’t mean that it affects her any less.
The thing about this Jersey indie-pop singer/songwriter is that she does read the comments, all of them. She shared with Rolling Stone that she knows what every random kid online thinks of her. In the interview she mentions that for every kid who is saying something awful, one is saying something great, and we agree with that. Nobody should ever let the bad comments get to them, because there are always great ones, and someone who loves you. And if you need to be reminded of one, CelebMix loves you.
Halsey is known to publicly say that she is biracial, bisexual and has bipolar disorder. By doing so, it seems like she’s proud of who she is and doesn’t care if she’s “different,” and she should be proud. If that’s what she is or has, why should it be a crime to say so? She’s being true to herself.
“Six months ago you were begging for an artist that would talk about this sh*t! But then I do, and you say, ‘Oh, not her. Someone else,'” said Halsey to Rolling Stone.
By sharing that she’s biracial, bisexual and has bipolar disorder, she’s told by people that she’s calling herself “tri-bi.” In the interview Halsey shared that she hates the tag and the fact that the idea would be trivialized down to a hashtag.
You can read the question Rolling Stone asked Halsey and her full answer below:
You happen to be biracial, bisexual and have bipolar disorder — but it drives you crazy that people think you’ve called yourself “tri-bi,” right?
I fcking 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, fcking 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 sh*t! But then I do, and you say, ‘Oh, not her. Someone else.'”
