She then informed fans that this would not be the album’s artwork, and that she’d ‘make them find it’.
Nope! When I'm ready for you to have the album cover,
I'm gonna make you find it. https://t.co/zgtwEkxgzt

“What happens? Do I lose my record deal? Do I lose everything? Or do I keep [the pregnancy]?,” she said. “What are the fans going to think? What are the moms going to think? What is the Midwest going to think? What’s fucking everyone going to think?”
She also went on to describe experiencing a miscarriage in a hotel room then continuing to play a show that same day.
“It’s the angriest performance that I’ve ever done in my life. That was the moment of my life where I thought to myself, ‘I don’t feel like a fucking human being any more.’ This thing, this music, Halsey, whatever it is that I’m doing, took precedence and priority over every decision that I made regarding this entire situation from the moment I found out until the moment it went wrong. I walked offstage and went into the parking lot and just started throwing up.”
Halsey says she “beat myself up” over the miscarriage “because I think that the reason it happened is just the lifestyle I was living. I wasn’t drinking. I wasn’t doing drugs. I was fucking overworked – in the hospital every couple of weeks because I was dehydrated, needing bags of IVs brought to my green room. I was anaemic, I was fainting. My body just broke the fuck down.”
“I had a choice,” she says. “I want to be a mom more than I want to be a pop star. More than I want to be anything in the world.”
