21-year-old singer Halsey, whose real name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, recently opened up about a horrific ordeal that took place a few hours before she was set to perform in Chicago in 2015.
The singer, who shot to fame at record-breaking speed last year, got pregnant on tour and suffered a miscarriage.
“I’m like, ‘I have to cancel this show!’” the singer said. “And everyone’s kind of like, ‘Well, it’s Vevo LIFT, and it’s three million impressions, so …’ No one knew what to do.”
“It’s the angriest performance that I’ve ever done in my life,” Halsey mentioned.
Yet, she made the shocking decision to continue with the performance, taking two painkillers and requesting for adult diapers.
“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.”
She admitted it was her choice to perform that night, and blamed the miscarriage on her hectic lifestyle. She added that she was overworked, up until the point where she needed bags of IVs every couple of weeks because she was anaemic and fainting. She is still beating herself up for it.
