The "Now or Never" singer opened up about the sexist double standard she's faced and her anticipated duet with Lauren Jauregui
Halsey opened up about the sexist double standard she's faced when it comes to counterculture credibility during an interview on The Zach Sang Show Wednesday (May 17). She also talked about “Strangers,” her hotly anticipated collaboration with Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui.
“Kendrick [Lamar] has done a Maroon 5 feature, a Taylor Swift feature and a Sia feature -- which is more pop features than I’ve done. No one's calling him a pop star,” Halsey said. “But I’m being called one, even though I’m inherently an alternative artist. I don’t know if it’s a male thing, I don’t know if it’s an urban thing. I don’t know what it is. But if you’re a female alternative artist and you do anything that’s even slightly pop leaning, it’s condemning.”
