Wait – Halsey performed on Saturday Night Live but was also the host? Was this SNL’s version of frugality – getting some sorta-known singer to also speak words in skits? Whatever it was – Halsey probably realized she’s not exactly on the superstar train just yet. So she knew she had to make her performances as memorable as possible. Which she did by painting a portrait of her (?) face on the stage floor while singing her song “Eastside” during her second song. And she painted upside down!
Halsey gave off a perky-sidewalk artist-trying-really-hard-to-wow-you-so-you’d-fill-her-hat-with-ducats vibe but hey, that was some effort, right?
Halsey also sought to make her first (musical) performance memorable by performing “Without Me” (a song about how her ex G-Eazy cheated on her) against a backdrop of sentences apologizing for cheating and mentioning the actual places she did it!
Give her credit, she at least tried something and her venturing into another form of art wasn’t unfortunately inspired by her vocal track skipping. #IDidntKnowWhatToDoSoIThoughtIdDoAHoedown
