Halsey gave a very raw speech at the Ending Youth Homelessness: A Benefit For My Friend’s Place event in Los Angeles. While very inspirational, she did make some interesting revelations from when she was homeless in New York before becoming a famous pop star – including considering prostitution.
“When I was living in New York, I was a teenager. My friends were picking out decorations for their dorms, and I was debating on whether or not I should let a stranger inside of me so I could pay for my next meal,’ she admitted.
‘It wasn’t because I did something bad. It wasn’t because something was wrong with me, and it wasn’t because my parents didn’t love me because they did very much. But a series of unfortunate circumstances led me to be in that position, and it can happen to absolutely anyone.’
That’s so sad. 😕
Thankfully, things turned around for Halsey. She was able to meet with Capitol Music Group’s A&R Vice President Jeremy Vuernick, and that changed her life forever.
