8 Big-Name Celebrities Who Were Called the Eff Out by Halsey
July 18, 2018
Halsey is one of the most talked about female artists of our generation. Not only has she collaborated with popular artists such as The Chainsmokers, Lauren Jauregui, and Justin Bieber, but her most recent album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, quickly shot to number one on the charts. The craziest part of the 23-year-old’s success story? She’s been grinding to make it in the music industry for years, having started by posting videos on YouTube!
HalGal’s success is enough to give most people a big head, but our fave celebrities are the ones who are genuine, supportive and kind towards others. While the New Jersey native falls under this category
for sure, it doesn’t mean her claws don’t come out every once in a while. The self-proclaimed feminist often calls out her fellow stars for their (usually) effed-up moves. Read on to see a list of your favorite celebs who Halsey has publicly dissed:
1 of 10
Halsey identifies as bisexual, and
in one particular interview she called out straight female artists for depicting bisexuality as "taboo." And that was all fine... until she called out the former Disney actress directly by referencing some lyrics from her hit song "Cool For The Summer," which is about experimenting with women, as being problematic.
Halsey said, "Oh, yeah. Bisexuality as a taboo: 'Don’t tell your mom,' or 'We shouldn't do this' or 'This feels so wrong but it's so right.'"
Demi fired back a few days later by tweeting, "You know a song is a hit when people are still talking about the lyrics two years later. #shhhhdonttellyourmother." The drama!

In the same interview in which she slammed Miss Lovato, Halsey also took aim at Katy Perry. The "Now or Never" crooner specifically referenced the lyrics, "This feels so wrong, but it's so right," which are featured in KP's "I Kissed a Girl."
NGL, this wasn't the only time Katy's come under fire for her first-ever hit single, so she's probably used to it. Still, it's no fun getting called out by a fellow pop star.

Luke Hemmings' ex-girlfriend have had beef in the past, but it seemed that it died fairly quickly. Recently, however, the social media star attended Emo Nite in LA and the event posted a picture that showed her DJing in a pink wig. The photo was deleted, however, after the singer commented, "This is embarrassing."
The shade came just days after Arz was allegedly caught cheating on the 5SOS guy with Blackbear, and the singer has been friends with the Aussies for, like,
ever, so we kindasorta see where she was coming from in her aggression.

Hailey def shaded Halsey first in this case. The model was Snapchatting when "New Americana" came on. She clearly wasn't a fan, because she quickly asked, "Can you change the station? Please."
Halsey didn't waste time posting a Snap of herself imitating HB in an extremely exaggerated valley girl voice. Guess that'll teach you not to mess with the 22-year-old's tunes!

This rapper has been accused of making homophobic remarks in the past, which is definitely not cool. And Halsey, as a bisexual artist, felt the need to voice her opinion on the matter. Her comment suggested that Quavo is
not smart enough to be politically correct. Then, after he even went so far as to apologize for his mistakes, she called his apology "bullsh*t."
What's even weirder is that the 22-year-old actually featured the musician on her latest album, which is something she never would've done if she knew of his past.
She tweeted, "Honestly? I didn't know that Quavo had made homophobic comments when I collaborated him. We've never spoken a word to each other and I have no intention of pursuing a friendship there, unless he wants to make a legitimate apology."

When talking about artists she would or would not feature on her albums in the future, Halsey straight-up said, "Iggy Azalea: absolutely not. She has a complete disregard for black culture. F*cking moron." OUCH!
Soon after, Iggy responded to Halsey's comments in a radio interview, saying, "I thought it was a bit of a strange thing to throw that out there, but she's young and I hope she learns maybe to be a bit less judgmental when she's kind of in the same shoes."

literally cannot believe that Halsey went after the Princess of Pop, but she most certainly did! When she talked about the start of her own career, the 22-year-old said she was naive for thinking that BS wrote her own music. Valid...but still unexpected!

Although Halsey is actually featured on The Chainsmokers’ "Closer," she got pretty pissed when the group called out Lady Gaga
in a high-profile interview. Here's the lowdown: The EDM duo bashed Gaga, Gaga fired back with shade-soaked song lyrics, and Halsey intervened to defend the "Million Reasons" crooner.
Drew was PISSED and tweeted that the 22-year-old was a "bald b*tch." Halsey responded by posting two Instagram pics, one of her "dumb bald head"
and another of her hugging LG. SAVAGE!

If it wasn't already obvious, there are
tons of celebrities who aren't supportive of the current political administration, and Halsey, like several others, has been extremely vocal about it. So vocal, in fact, that she threw shade at Ivanka Trump on social media after she posted a photo with her son using the hashtag, #SundayMornings.
Halsey didn't hesitate to fire back, saying, "I wonder what #SundayMorning is like for the parents of 1500 lost children your father is responsible for. F*** your #SundayMorning." Tell us how you really feel, Hals!

For a while, Halsey and G-Eazy seemed so in love that fans couldn't imagine a world in which they weren't together. Alas, like most celeb relationships, these two recently called it quits and now fans seem to think it's because G cheated on her!
A day after Halsey publicly announced their split, she tweeted the words "pumpkin eater," which fans took to mean that he cheated. Whether he did or not, though, we
definitely think this tweet was shady AF. Don't you?
