Halsey showed her armpit hair on the cover of Rolling Stone.
The 24-year-old pop star is featured in the magazine’s July 2019 “The Hot Issue.” But she and Rolling Stone were praised for the cover.
“I loooove the fact that they didn’t edit the armpits like most magazine would do,” Zara Larsson tweeted. “Women are not little babies who don’t have body hair. Stunning cover.”
Artists like Maggie Rogers and Demi Lovato also lauded the cover photo on Halsey’s Instagram.
Halsey’s latest single, “Nightmare,” features lyrics about body insecurity. In the Rolling Stone interview, she spoke candidly about her battle with bipolar disorder, saying she’s twice sought treatment during the course of her career.
“I’ve been committed twice since [I became] Halsey, and no one’s known about it,” she stated. ‘But I’m not ashamed of talking about it now. Being committed isn’t a problem, it’s a way of responsibly deal with one. It’s been my choice.”
