Halsey Snaps Back at Fan's Criticism of Playboy Shoot: 'A Woman Can Be Multi-Dimensional'
People have put all kinds of labels on Halsey over the past few years. Hell, she's done it herself. But the one thing you should probably not try to pin on her is the scarlet letter of not being a feminist. One fan learned that lesson the hard way on Wednesday (Aug. 23) when they questioned her feminist credentials after the Badlands singer teased an upcoming cover feature in the Sept./Oct. issue of Playboy magazine in which she poses in a sheer pink bathing suit.
The 20 questions interview, in which Halsey talks about adjusting to fame, feeling underestimated, being the dominant partner in relationships and the changing ideals of physical beauty, spurred a comment from an Instagram user who wrote, "you are a feminist but you flash your boobs in Playboy magazine," complete with a confused-face emoji.
The comment didn't sit well with the singer, who wrote back "JUST so we are f--king CLEAR," complete with middle finger and nail polish emojis and the completely transparent reply, "Yeah it's crazy. I can show my t--s in Playboy, perform at the Nobel Peace, speak at the Planned Parenthood Gala with Hillary Clinton, shake my ass on 300 stages, give a speech at the United Nations, do 150 shots of tequila, get a #1 album, and march in the streets of DC all in just ONE year!!!! Newsflash. A woman can be multi dimensional."
