like the soap mv where she gets in the bathtub with johnny and kisses him (which wouldn’t be a problem if crybaby wasn’t portrayed as a literal child!). Lyrics in training wheels that use learning to ride a bike as a metaphor for sex (which could arguably be done well if this, again, wasn’t pertaining to actual child characters). The pacify her mv in which literal children are playing in a playpen before one of the characters stands up and flashes her boobs off camera. The lyrics to play date heavily imply sex as well but some people think it doesn’t count cuz it’s a bonus track lol. Wheels on the bus depicts kindergarteners??? Getting frisky in the back of a school bus?? And there’s probably more that I’m not even aware of. Gross.
I hope no one takes this the wrong way or anything, but is there any way that we could make a separate thread dedicated to art/reworkings of the characters? I feel as though posting + discussing art distracts from the main conversation and honestly...kinda seems fanart-y to me?
This isn’t super relevant so im sorry for going ot but I’d just like to nitpick for a hot sec if that’s alright albinism isn’t actually its own race! It may be a fairly common misconception, but it’s really just a genetic mutation/disorder that affects a person’s pigmentation, and people of any race can be born with it! Just thought I’d point that out. anyways, back on topic. Although halsey doesn’t resemble her dad very much I wouldn’t be surprised if they were biologically related. Her natural nose is fairly similar to his, in my opinion. Also her smile pre-plastic surgery looks similar to her brothers’ smiles...but it’s so hard to tell with all her ps now. That and her constant lies
not to mention it’s also going to mess up her lungs big time. She already has terrible breath control. It’s only a matter of time before the damage starts becoming audible in her voice 🙄 it’s so disappointing when singers smoke....like avoiding smoking is the bare minimum you can do to take care of your lungs and throat, and they do it anyway?? They’re just asking to cut their careers short.
i would just like to point out that i think you’re generalizing a bit too much in regards to bipolar disorder. People with high-functioning bipolar disorder exist, you know that, right? Not everyone who has the disorder is going to act the exact same way or have equally severe forms of it. So it’s not really fair to make assumptions about people’s mental health, since not everyone is going to have or express the same symptoms in the same ways. I agree with the first part of your comment, though; interviewers need to be more pressing about her ridiculous claims! You’d think they’d catch on
BAHAHHA oh my GOSH. I’m watching the video right now and it’s almost comically bad. Her singing sounds really slurred??? As if she’s drunk?? And it’s really over-produced and emotionless, almost mechanical. It’s absolutely terrible. It doesn’t suit her voice at all, and like others have mentioned, she’s trying way too hard to sound like something completely different from her natural voice. The whole time she looks unsure of what to do with herself—girl can’t act. Congrats dove, I don’t think it can get any worse than this.
I actually think wengie moves her body really well, at least in that clip, but the amount of time she spends standing in one spot and posing is really excessive and awkward. It quickly gets old and really slows down the energy of the song which is a huge detriment to the dance...what a shame :\ if the problem is really her lack of skill, why doesn’t she just practice more?
Did anyone see the past few instagram stories she’s posted? Most of them are still up. Apparently she’s sick but i don’t know what with, and i dunno if she ever specified, but it looks like she was in the hospital with an IV drip (i think?) at one point. Her voice is super scratchy and she had to cancel a show or something. I kinda feel bad, she was super apologetic about it
(I’d put this under a spoiler if i knew how but omg has anyone seen the movie Greta? It’s crazy how much the title character reminds me of marge: the accent, the controlling nature, the general creepiness and stalker behavior. It’s like the actress studied her to get into character lol)
i agree, I was actually surprised by how much i liked her white dress during the performance, though it doesn’t seem to fit her usual “style” (or lack thereof?? Lol). I also really liked the hairstyle she had, though the auburn doesn’t really do anything for her. i thought the performance was...kinda strange? The staging and the visuals were pretty, but her dancing was a different story. It’s hard to dance and run around and sing at the same time, and halsey certainly couldn’t handle it. Like someone else said, she sounded out of breath and she was stumbling around a whole lot. It was kind of embarrassing.
not only that but she also seems to sexualize/fetishize gay things more, like the lesbian version of her “ghost” music video and one of her live performances of graveyard, with all the female dancers wearing lingerie n whatnot. The way she touched one of the dancers gave me the creeps
I actually prefer this new video to the lemonade one. Neither video seemed to really fit their respective songs (in terms of narrative/visuals) but i guess I didn’t mind it as much with this new one. I think about halfway thru, all the slow, stagnant shots start to get a bit boring; but i think it looks really professionally done which is fairly impressive for such a small indie artist. (I mean i guess almost anyone can make a video look good nowadays, but ya know.)
I honestly would’ve never guessed that she lied about the story behind her name change. I knew she was shady but I would’ve never thought that she’d lie/exaggerate something like that. Just when i thought she couldn’t get any faker
i was originally gonna put this under unpopular opinions but then it turned into a rant so here i am I understand that sometimes people get into really desperate situations but in most cases, asking others on the internet to “donate” money to u like you’re some kind of charity is...kind of annoying to me? Especially if you’re an adult that’s not in school and could easily go out and get a job. Yeah jobs can be hard to find sometimes and other times u just don’t get hired...but there will always be places looking to hire. even if it’s at a grocery store or gas station, a “lame” job is better than no job. And it’s certainly better than begging for money from strangers. (Heck, even babysitting can pay pretty well and it doesn’t even require a lot of time or skill.) I just saw this girl i follow doing this, and it’s upsetting cuz she’s a singer that i really like but she’s LITERALLY. Literally asking people to donate money...for her CAT. As far as i know she has no job (none that she’s mentioned anyway and she tends to be pretty open) despite being an adult. So like...if you can’t afford to take care of your cat yourself...then maybe you shouldn’t have a cat at all?? Also it's just totally ridiculous to ask other people to pay for your pet. Who’s gonna want to pay for an animal that doesn’t even belong to them?? It’s just so mind boggling to me.
People overuse the words sociopath/psychopath way too much now and it’s annoying, especially when used to attribute someone’s bad actions to some arbitrary cause. Sometimes, and bear with me here...people do bad things simply because they're bad people. They don’t need a personality disorder to be behind it, and the assumption that they should only increases the stigma. It’s incredibly frustrating.
