The ‘Without Me’ singer previously delved into her experience with gender identity in an Instagram post last month, that saw the musician divulge that pregnancy has illuminated new feelings towards their gender identity.
“I’ve been thinking lots about my body,” Halsey wrote. “It’s strange to watch yourself change so quickly. I thought pregnancy would give me very strong, binary feelings about ‘womanhood’ but truly it has leveled my perception of gender entirely. My sensitivity to my body has made me hyper aware of my humanness and that’s all. Doing a remarkable thing. And it’s grand. I hope the feeling lasts.”
