WTF Why Is This Even A Thing...
Halsey has spoken out about the demeaning treatment that she endured as a pregnant woman working in the music industry.
Following the release of Halsey's brand new album 'If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power' she has stated that the album lyrics reflect the “joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth.”
Speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Halsey described how they were made to feel shame for deciding to have a baby while their career was going so well. Halsey didn’t name names but described how they had to assure various industry CEOs their pregnancy wouldn’t interfere with the executives’ plans for capitalising on the success of Manic.
“You have to call the CEO of X, Y, Z and say, Hey, hi, I’m just calling to let you know, I’m pregnant. I didn’t want you to find out on Instagram,” they said. “I wanted to tell you myself, personally. It’s still business as usual over here though, don’t worry. My personal choice isn’t going to affect your profitability or your productivity or your assembly line.”
In our opinion, this is bulls**t.
