It’s been a few days since a room full of crusty, out-of-touch, mostly male dickbags who no one elected but get to keep their asses planted on the bench for as long as they’d like to fuck over as many women and minorities as they can during their lifelong tenures decided that individual states can decide what people with uteruses can do with their own bodies. Obviously, people have strong feelings about it, and Halsey has never been one to back away from making their stance on issues known. At Halsey’s concert on Sunday night, the singer made comments condemning the overturning of Roe vs. Wade, spurring some people to walk out. When Halsey was made aware of this, they basically said that these people can kick rocks.
Halsey Has Been Sued By A Former Nanny For Discrimination And Illegal Termination, But Halsey Says It’s Not Like That
Typically when it comes to entertainment industry nanny drama, the odds are 2:1 that a story might involve some famous husband getting caught in an unsavory position with the person hired to help take care of his kids (aka the classic Whoopsies, I’m Getting Divorced Because I Have Zero Boundaries scenario). Sometimes it’s not as juicy and gossip-laden as that. In this case, we have Halsey, who is currently in the middle of a legal fight with a former nanny. Except, this nanny drama is still pretty dramatic, because both sides are accusing each other of bad behavior.
There used to be a time when a person might define music industry success by asking, “Quick – name three of their most famous songs” (Somewhere Rita Ora’s eyes are darting back and forth nervously). But if Halsey is telling the truth, then current-day music industry success might only be quantified after someone can name an artist’s last three viral moments on TikTok. Halsey has claimed that her record label is currently playing hardball with their new music, and it’s allegedly all over some TikTok metrics.
Lorne Michaels is definitely breathing out a million sighs of relief today because his reign as the overlord of Saturday Night Live will continue for another 1,000 years now that he’s given Satan the gift of giving Hell’s most terrifying kreations, the Kardashians, a big platform. As expected, Kim Kardashian followed in the footsteps of her fellow comedic icons (like Paris Hilton, Trump, Nancy Kerrigan, Rudy Ghouliani, Elon Musk, and Lance Armstrong) and hosted SNL last night. We did learn last night that Kim Kardashian can actually read words! But then again, her cue cards were probably written with emojis.
During the pandemic, you weren’t anybody unless you were keeping a secret about being pregnant, and SURPRISE! announcing it months after the baby was born. Halsey has been pregnant; we know this, because she announced it way back in January, and has posed numerous times with her big pregnant belly out. And now, just five days after the baby was born, she’s announcing that she’s a mom. Only five days of celebrity new baby secrecy? Nature is truly healing.
I guess Halsey didn’t hear that the pandemic’s hottest celebrity baby-based trend was the secret quarantine baby. But good for her for spilling the news before she spilled her water all over a hospital floor. It’s nice to give your friends a couple of months notice, so they’re not scrambling to find tiger-print diaper covers or a jewel-tone satin receiving blanket set that won’t get tied up in pandemic shipping hell (I’m personally still waiting for makeup brushes that I ordered before the Halloween candy hit the store shelves). But while Halsey’s friends are doing that, we can dissect her pregnancy announcement.
