Why Halsey Is So Important

She’s only just stepped foot into the intense world that is the music industry, but Halsey is already causing an impact. Halsey has become the subject of interest among many, but it is not always her music that is keeping people so compelled with the young sensation.

Halsey has never been one to stay quiet. If she believes she can try to make a difference, even if it’s just to one person, she speaks up. She’s been vocal about her being bisexual, and felt it was important to show a lesbian relationship in her “Ghost” music video. Speaking to “MusicFeeds.com” she stated “Like, I’m a bisexual woman so I’m interested in relationships with both men and women and I know how important it is to showcase that.”

Talking to ELLE, the singer also discussed her battle with bipolar disorder. Halsey discusses feeling like an “inconvenient woman” due to this illness, something many of her fans could relate to who also suffer from this. One of the most relatable quotes from the article reads “I’m not always going to be calm. I’m entitled to my emotions.” Quotes like this from a young artist can help people see that they are not alone, and feel like they have someone to relate to.

She summarizes mental illness in two sentences “It’s not all painting at four o’clock in the morning and road trips and fucking great things. Sometimes it’s throwing things and, like, getting hurt and having to pick someone up from the police station at two o’clock in the morning.” She lightly touches on this topic in her song ‘Control’ which many people have praised.

As well as these, on numerous occasions, she has tweeted out against body shaming and about feminism to her one million followers. Halsey has used her platform for the greater good and we cannot thank her enough for being an inspiration and voice for many who feel like they cannot express themselves.
