Halsey attended the 6th annual Capitol Congress at Hollywood’s ArcLight Theater this week, where she opened up about the new album she's working on, and her upcoming 25th birthday.
“I feel like a speedball of a human. I’m basically freebasing my way through life right now,” she said.
“I’m going to be 25 in two months. I’m a quarter of century old. I didn’t think I was going to be alive that long.”
She's spoken up many times before about the hard times she faced as a child and young teenager, which included addiction, bullying, and being institutionalized.
“I grew up in a world where being 25 [meant] having three kids and being in a sh*tty relationship, or I was going to be dead because young people with bi-polar disorder who grow up with no resources don’t usually end up thriving at 25.”
As for her upcoming 3rd album, she shared that it “has anger, betrayal and confusion, but it’s more inward that I intended it to be.”
