Halsey Reveals She Suffered a Miscarriage Last Year

Halsey has opened up about suffering a miscarriage last year and how she performed live immediately after finding out she lost her baby.

The 21-year-old singer was getting ready for her show in Chicago when she miscarried.

“I’m like, ‘I have to cancel this show!’ And everyone’s kind of like, ‘Well, it’s Vevo LIFT, and it’s 3 million impressions, so …’ No one knew what to do,” Halsey told Rolling Stone. She says she wore an adult diaper and took two Percocet before performing.

“It’s the angriest performance that I’ve ever done in my life,” Halsey added. “That was the moment of my life where I thought to myself, ‘I don’t feel like a f–king human being anymore.’ This thing, this music, Halsey, whatever it is that I’m doing, took precedence and priority over every decision that I made regarding this entire situation from the moment I found out until the moment it went wrong. I walked offstage and went into the parking lot and just started throwing up.”

Halsey thinks she lost her baby due to stress.

“I beat myself up for it, because I think that the reason it happened is just the lifestyle I was living,” she said. “I wasn’t drinking. I wasn’t doing drugs. I was f–king overworked – in the hospital every couple of weeks because I was dehydrated, needing bags of IVs brought to my greenroom. I was anemic; I was fainting. My body just broke the f–k down.”

“I had a choice,” Halsey said about getting on stage to perform. “I want to be a mom more than I want to be a pop star. More than I want to be anything in the world.”

    It’s terrible that this happened to her. But if she was pregnant maybe she should have you know drank some water or eaten. You would think if she kept going to the hospital every few weeks for being dehydrated she would change up her life. Just because she was working a lot doesn’t mean she couldn’t have taken care of herself, those things aren’t mutually exclusive.

    no, she just went sporting and so got rid of her belly.

    This is horrible that her team kept pushing her. Obviously they cared more about the paycheck than her health. I hope she was able to fire all of them. What an emotional and physically painful thing to go through so publicly. I feel so angry for her.
