- Mall performer turned pop singer Halsey (23) was given the Outstanding Music Artist title at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards last weekend. Since she was in Europe, she couldn't accept her award in person.
- So instead, she posted a video. In it, she said she's worked hard to be a better representative of the LGBT community.
- She also said: "I’m a young, bisexual woman, and I’ve spent a large part of my life trying to validate myself - to my friends, to my family, to myself - trying to prove that who I love and how I feel is not a phase. It’s not part of some confusion that’s going to change or could be manipulated."
- Halsey also mentioned she was trying to incorporate more female pronouns into her music.
