Halsey vs Demi or how to sing about being bi


Halsey, who is openly bi, was speaking to PAPER Magazine saying that it is very hard to celebrate bisexuality through music because even when singers depict it in songs, the lyrics mostly contain the shade of taboo and forbid. To Halsey bi visibility in music is “just a shame that it’s so hard for marginalised or minority people to get the same pop music experience as people who are heterosexual or generally part of the majority.” When asked whether part of the problem was the association between bisexuality and experimentation in popular culture, Halsey gave some quotes: “‘Don’t tell your mum,’ or ‘We shouldn’t do this,’ or ‘This feels so wrong but it’s so right.’ These are from Demi Lovato’s Cool For The Summer and Katy Perry’s I Kissed A Girl. Furthermore Halsey explained: “That narrative is so f***ing damaging to bisexuality and its place in society. That’s something I’ve had to fight my whole life and something I still fight.” Katy Perry is yet to respond, but Lovato is already hitting her colleague back. She responded with an appropriately cool reply, pointing out the longevity of her creation.“You know a song is a hit when people are still talking about the lyrics two years later. 💁🏻#shhhhdonttellyourmother” Demi wrote.
