Halsey has always openly supported women’s health and reproductive rights. So last May when many states were implementing abortion bans, she got real about what happens when you take away a woman’s right to choose. 

“Watching the demise of our reproductive rights sends a sickening rage through my core. Autonomy is the basis of our humanity. The ability to feel and the right to choose,” she stated. She also discussed the government being “immune” to the female experience regarding abortion

Halsey’s completely open regarding her sexuality and has spoken out about bi-erasure. In this tweet, she used humor to comment on the reality of people not accepting her identity and how to “solve” it.

Halsey took to Twitter in 2018 to tell the story of how she smoked for a decade, saying that it “ruled [her] life until [she] just woke up one day and decided ‘no more.’” Her words were good advice to her thousands of followers, and even though some celebrities glamorize smoking, it’s really not cool.

8. When she stood up for Taylor Swift 

This past summer, Taylor Swift released a statement in regards to Scooter Braun acquiring her Big Machine catalog, sparking a massive #WeStandWithTaylor movement online. Halsey spoke out on behalf of Swift, penning her own statement in support of her fellow artist.

“She deserves to own the painstaking labor of her heart,” the note reads. “She has surpassed all expectations of what any artist is even capable of. She catapulted her stardom into the Milky Way. And it turns my guts that no matter how much power or success a woman has in this life, you are still susceptible to someone coming along and making you feel powerless out of spite.”

Halsey later continued to stand by Swift in November when Big Machine barred the vocalist from performing her back catalog at the American Music Awards where she was being honored as  Artist Of The Decade. The ban was resolved shortly after, and Halsey joined Camila Cabello to assist with “Shake It Off” during Swift’s medley.

9. When she called out people for being too cool

Halsey didn’t hold back in a tweet concerning gun control and children losing their lives in school shootings, putting partial blame on the NRA. She called the entire thing “disgusting.”
