Unlike most pop stars on the rise, Halsey is an open book. When it comes to talking about her personal life, there's no territory that she won't explore. Back in 2014, she explained her process of selecting which experiences are worth documenting in the form of music. This past year, she opened up to Elle about being a biracial and bisexual woman with bipolar disorder. It's no secret that Halsey has gone through some dark times, but now it seems like she's found a way to use all of that emotion and energy to feed her creativity.

In her most recent cover story for Billboard, the singer came forward about reaching a low point, where she once contemplated committing suicide. When she was a senior in high school, she even spent time in a psychiatric hospital to be treated for it.
