Halsey dropped by The Daily Show With Trevor Noah on Wednesday (Nov. 11) to promote her new book of poetry, I Would Leave Me If I Could, and dished on the importance of baring it all with her fans.
"Poetry was just kind of like ... I write all the time," the singer said of how her debut collection came to be. "And I was like, 'Some things you can't sing,' you know? And I just wanted to put it out there and let people have it, and get to know me a little bit in this time where it's so difficult to connect with my fans the way that I'm used to. 'Cause, you know, as a musician, I really don't know when I'm gonna be allowed back on a stage again. And that makes me very sad."
When asked by host Trevor Noah, Halsey also revealed what she hopes fans will take from the book of poems, which touches on heavy topics from going through a miscarriage to surviving sexual assault.
