The "Him & I" singer continued, "I've said to my manager, 'Hey, I’m not going to do anything bad right now, but I’m getting to the point where I’m scared that I might, so I need to go figure this out.' It’s still happening in my body. I just know when to get in front of it."

"Here’s what’s f**ked up to me. A young man seeks success and power so that he can use it to control people, and a young woman seeks success and power so that she no longer has to worry about being controlled. It’s an illusion, a f**king lie. There is no amount of success or notoriety that makes you safe when you’re a woman. None," the New Jersey native said.

Halsey also spoke about finding her identity through her struggles. "I was talking to boyfriend Dominic Harrison the other day, and I was like, 'When you’re laying in bed at night and you’re on tour and you miss me, how do you picture me? Do you picture me with short brown hair? Or long blond hair?' And he’s like, 'I don’t really know.' And I’ve thought about that for a while, and I’ve been like, 'Is that a good thing or a bad thing?'"

"Does that mean I have no sense of identity? Or is it a good thing I don’t limit my perception because I haven’t permitted myself to view myself as one thing, because I haven’t stayed one f**king thing long enough to be that?" she said.
