Halsey hits back at biphobia in the best way and we couldn’t be more proud

Halsey is quite literally the ‘New Americana’. She’s loud, proud and honest. We’ve heard all about her past struggles, sexuality, politics and much more. She does sum up a new generation.


She also stands up for herself and our girl called out Buzzfeed after they posted an article scrutinising her authenticity as an artist due to not being queer enough. As if she walked the LGBTQ+ route to launch her career and then went straight down Hetero Lane for mainstream success. We’re hardcore rolling our eyes and so is Halsey.

The article is an interesting concept in itself, but executed poorly. If she hangs around with loads of guys, she isn’t being gay enough but if she’s with a bunch of girls it’s a lesbian affair. The article basically implies that she’s not acting gay enough due to her strong male friendships with Justin Bieber, The Chainsmokers etc. Come on Buzzfeed, really?


If you haven’t read the article, you can do so here and form your own opinion. Tweet us @maximumpop because we’d be really interested to hear your thoughts.
