Pop singer Halsey was upset about the way they were presented in a recent interview and now says she will no longer do interviews.
Halsey goes by the pronouns “she/they,” tweeted the hashtag #NoMorePress Wednesday after Allure used only “she/her” in its August cover story.
“hey @Allure_magazine. First your writer made a focal point in my cover story my pronouns and you guys deliberately disrespected them by not using them in the article,” Halsey tweeted.
She continued, “Then your admin bastardized a quote where I discuss the privilege of being the white child of a black parent + Intentionally used a portion that was the antithesis of the point I was trying to make.”

In the interview, Halsey said:
“A lot of people try to write off a lot of my experiences because I present white. No matter how many tears I’ve shed because I’m not connecting with my family or my culture in a way that I would like too, or because the waitress thinks I’m the babysitter when I go out with my family, none of that would compare to the tears that I would shed for presenting phenotypically Black and the disadvantages and the violence that I would face because of that.”
