Halsey’s had one hell of a year – from her Women’s March moment to her current Hopeless Fountain Kingdom world tour. Weathering the storms of her past, she’s charted an atypical course to stardom. Inside Marie Claire US’s August issue (cover photographed by Mark Seliger), the pop-songstress address her critics who challenge what she stands for, how performing allowing her to cope with her mental illness, the craziest thing she’s ever done, and what the future holds.
On her response to critics who question what she stands for: “In one year, I performed at the Nobel Peace Prize [Concert] in Oslo, donated $100,000 to Planned Parenthood, got my first Grammy nomination, showed my t*ts in Playboy, and did about 150 tequila shots. I did all those things, and it’s because I’m multidimensional.”
On how performing allows her to cope with mental illness: “I release endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine. Like, it’s literally a drug response. I don’t manage my mental illness to keep up with my lifestyle; I manage my lifestyle to keep up with my mental illness.”
On enjoying her new-found success: “Payton [her best friend] and me used to live on f*cking Hot Pockets, and now we’ve eaten caviar on three continents.”
On the craziest thing she’s ever done: “Shut down a highway in Mexico City [for a gun battle in the video for ‘Now or Never’].”
On what the future holds: “Once my tour is over, I feel like anything could happen. I could decide I want to move to Italy for a year and write. I could get pregnant. I finally have enough stability in my career where I can take a breath. I feel like I can let life happen.”

Singer Ariana Grande stars on ELLE US’s August cover and opens up about her new album and outlook on life.
Grande discusses the aftermath of the devastating attack at her concert in Manchester, performing after the tragic event, using her platform to take a stand, and much more.
On coming home after the Manchester attack: “When I got home from tour, I had really wild dizzy spells, this feeling like I couldn’t breathe. I would be in a good mood, fine and happy, and they would hit me out of nowhere. I’ve always had anxiety, but it had never been physical before. There were a couple of months straight where I felt so upside down.”
On performing after Manchester: “Why would I second-guess getting on a f*cking stage and being there for them? That city, and their response? That changed my life.”
On using her platform to take a stand: “There’s a lot of noise when you say anything about anything. But if I’m not going to say it, what’s the f*cking point of being here? Not everyone is going to agree with you, but that doesn’t mean I’m just going to shut up and sing my songs. I’m also going to be a human being who cares about other human beings; to be an ally and use my privilege to help educate people.”

She doesn’t know how to use Snapchat and Liam is obsessed with Pokémon Go…
Is she on Snapchat, ELLE asked? “No. I want to be. I don’t know how to use it. I feel like I’ll be an old lady that’s too held back, because I don’t keep up with it. I’m not on Pokémon Go. [This morning] Liam woke up and tried to go to the car wash because it was a—what do you call it?—PokéSpot. Like, “Got to go find them and catch them all! Ahh!”… (source)
