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.
