July has been a month of highs and lows for Halsey.
It’s been busy to say the least!
On July 20, Halsey announced she had welcomed their first child, Ender Ridley Aydin, on July 14.

While this entire month should be one of celebration, the singer revealed she was “deliberately disrespected” which has caused the new mom great pain.
Halsey, who goes by “she/they” pronouns, recently took to Twitter to call out Allure for misgendering them.
They expressed frustration with the outlet not only for misgendering them, but also for the way the publication discussed their upbringing.
In since-deleted tweets, Halsey wrote, “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.”
“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,” Halsey continued.

The singer even explained to Allure the reason they hate doing interviews is because they are constantly “misquoted and exploited.”
Halsey concluded the message with this sentiment, “Do f***ing better! #NoMorePress goodbye.”
Allure got wind of Halsey’s message and feedback from fans, and issued a statement of their own.
On July 14, the outlet tweeted, “We’ve heard your feedback and you’re absolutely right: we messed up. We are adjusting our cover story with Halsey to use both ‘she’ and ‘they’ pronouns.”

Back in March, Halsey updated their pronouns to “she/they” on their social media accounts.
After announcing she was expecting in January, the singer took to social media to explain how pregnancy has changed their perception of gender entirely.
In February she wrote, “I’ve been thinking lots about my body. It’s strange to watch yourself change so quickly. I thought pregnancy would give me very strong, binary feelings about ‘womanhood’ but truly it has leveled my perception of gender entirely.”
“My sensitivity to my body has made me hyper aware of my humanness and that’s all,” they continued. “Doing a remarkable thing. And it’s grand. I hope the feeling lasts.”
That feeling will definitely last on their fourth studio album.
“This album is a concept album about the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth. It was very important to me that the cover art conveyed the sentiment of my journey over the past few months,” Halsey wrote.
Their album, “If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power” comes out August 27.
