After a magazine misgendered the singer in a recent piece, Halsey has stopped doing interviews.
After Allure used solely “she/her” in their August cover story on Halsey, who uses the pronouns “she/they,” Halsey tweeted the hashtag #NoMorePress on Wednesday.
“hey @Allure_magazine. First your writer made a focal point in my cover story my pronouns and you guys deliberately disrespected them by not using them in the article,” Halsey, 26, wrote in a series of since-deleted tweets (via E! News).
“Then your admin bastardised a quote where I discuss the privilege of being the white child of a black parent + Intentionally used a portion that was the antithesis of the point I was trying to make,” the “Without Me” singer said, adding, “Then your admin bastardised a quote where I discuss the privilege of being the white child of a black parent + Intentionally used a portion that was the antithesis of the point I was trying to make.”
The irony of Allure’s gaffe was highlighted by Halsey, who stated that the musician “hates doing press because I get used and misquoted.”
“Do f–king better…?” the Grammy nominee, who has an album due out in late August, added under the #NoMorePress hashtag. as well as “goodbye.”
“We’ve heard your concerns and you’re completely right: we messed up,” Allure tweeted on July 14, apologising for the error. We’re changing our cover story with Halsey to include both the pronouns “she” and “they.”
“For those inquiring RE: my revised Instagram bio, I am happy with either pronouns,” Halsey, whose real name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, said in March when she changed “she/they” to her Instagram profile.
“The addition of ‘they,’ in addition to ‘she,’ feels most natural to me,” she continued. If you know me at all, you understand how important it is for me to express this publicly.
“Thank you for always being the best.”
Halsey previously discussed how her and her husband’s gender perspectives shifted after they became parents for the first time.
In February, she said on Instagram, “I imagined pregnancy would give me extremely strong, binary thoughts about ‘womanhood,’ but actually it has levelled my sense of gender altogether.”
“It’s just that my sensitivity to my body has made me hyper conscious of my humanity. It’s a remarkable thing you’re doing. And it’s magnificent. I’m hoping this sensation lasts. I cook a lot, sleep even more, and read lots My family is something I miss. And you as well! “For the time being, bye.”
On July 14, the songwriter and her boyfriend, Alev Aydin, had their first child, Ender.
Allure did not immediately react to a request for comment on Halsey’s statement from CN News.
