Halsey once considered sex work in order to make ends meet when she was a teenager going through homelessness in New York.
"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,"
"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."
