Halsey Talks About Being Shamed During Pregnancy: ‘I Got Treated Like a Teen Mom’

Halsey has opened up on the shaming they faced during their pregnancy.

The singer shared his during a recent sit-down with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, where they said that got really candid about the experience, saying: “I’m 26, and I tried very hard for this pregnancy and it was like, I’m financially independent, I’m pretty far along in my career, it feels like the right time for me to do it. And I got treated like a teen mom a lot of the times.”

Halsey continued, “Where people were like, ‘Oh, my God, you’re so young, and you have so much to do in your career, and you’re not married, and you’re this.’ “So fuck ’em,” they concluded. “I just was like, I’m going to do what I want to do. You know what I mean? I was like, this is important to me.”

Halsey said the negativity responses were triggering, and evoked feelings of shame they had experienced when they were younger. “I was like, how can you have an opinion, that kind of opinion on me making this decision?” they continued.

The singer and boyfriend, Alev Aydin, welcomed Ender last month during the preparation of their fourth studio album, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power.

The Grammy-nominated singer also spoke about the effect of pregnancy on the project’s promotional run.

“We were going out and trying to set up magazine covers based around the album release, and they were like, ‘Yeah, but is she going to be pregnant? Because we don’t want to do a maternity cover,’” Halsey recalled. “And I was like, it’s not a maternity cover. It’s about my album. I just happen to be pregnant. And they’re like, ‘No, it’s a pregnant cover.’ And I was like, so I can’t go talk about my album?”

But despite all the judgement and criticism, Halsey insists they are in a good mental space and ready to take on parenthood.

“I feel super in the moment, super zen, super scared about all of it,” Halsey admitted. “About labor, about being a good mom, about protecting my child and doing the right things, and balancing everything. But I feel so full of gratitude at the same time.” “It’s a subject that has long caused me a tremendous amount of pain. And now I get to feel this way instead.”
