Halsey is making her pain permanent by getting a tattoo in honor of her late friend, rapper Juice WRLD. The 25-year-old singer debuted the new ink on her social media, hours after the rapper’s family announced his “Legends Never Die” album will drop on Friday. In addition to confirming the album name and release date, Juice WRLD’s family dropped his new single with Halsey called “Life’s A Mess.” In honor of their duet, Halsey tattooed those three words in a place that won’t be easy to cover up.
Taking to her Instagram on Monday, June 6, the “Nightmare” singer gave her followers the first glimpse of her fresh ink. The words “Life’s a Mess 999” can be seen inked across her knuckles. 999 Club is the official merchandise line of late rapper. Pairing the tattoo snap with a lengthy comment, Halsey poured her heart out, revealing that she cried when she first heard their duet. “Juice was one of the greatest people I have ever known, and one of the most brilliant artists we will ever live to witness,” she began her emotional message.

“A true genius who had lyric and melody spilling out of him without any second thought or hesitation,” Halsey continued. Calling Juice WRLD “a beautiful soul,” the singer said he “believed in spreading love and creating a community for people to feel less alone.” Speaking about their collaboration, Halsey added, “It means everything to me that I could be a part of this album. I cried the first time that I heard it. With all the love in my heart, #lljw – “Life’s A Mess” link in IG Story.”
Juice WRLD, whose real name was Jarad Anthony Higgins, died in December 2019 at the age of 21. Halsey’s beautiful dedication to her late friend comes one week after another musician from her past seemingly dissed her in a new song.
Her ex-boyfriend G-Eazy‘s new track, “Had Enough” is aimed at a “crazy-ass ex” who took “no time” to replace him with a new dude. Interestingly enough, it only took Halsey a few days to respond to her former flame by dropping a thirst trap that left fans hungry for more!
