Halsey Opens Up About Suicide Attempt for 'Billboard' Cover
Here’s what the 21-year-old singer had to share with the mag:
On her support for Bernie Sanders: “…While I know people in the industry who want to vote for someone who will protect them financially, I’m looking for a person who will make sure my 17-year-old brother doesn’t get killed someday because he’s half-black….”
On her drinking: “I’m 21, so I’m still in that stage when if you hand me something alcoholic, I’ll drink it.”
On dating a heroin addict: “I was following a boy. I was 17. He was 23, and he had a really serious heroin addiction.”
On trying to kill herself after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder: “I had tried to kill myself. I was an adolescent; I didn’t know what I was doing. Because I was 17, I was still in a children’s ward. Which was terrifying. I was in there with 9-year-olds who had tried to kill themselves.”
