“I’ve been committed twice since I became Halsey, and no one’s known about it,” she tells the publication. “But I’m not ashamed of talking about it now. It’s been my choice.”

“I’ve said to my manager, ‘Hey, I’m not going to do anything bad right now, but I’m getting to the point where I’m scared that I might, so I need to go figure this out.'”

The bipolar Without Me hitmaker adds, “It’s still happening in my body. I just know when to get in front of it.”

Halsey also opened up about being a rape survivor, explaining, “Here’s what’s fucked up to me: A young man seeks success and power so that he can use it to control people, and a young woman seeks success and power so that she no longer has to worry about being controlled. It’s an illusion, a fucking lie. There is no amount of success or notoriety that makes you safe when you’re a woman. None.”

However, the singer does believe she’s taking risks every time she speaks out about her issues, stating, “Then I’m not ‘Grammy-nominated pop star’; then I’m ‘rape survivor.’ Uhuh, no. Uh-uh, absolutely not. I have worked way too fucking hard to be quantified or categorized by something like that.”
