NJ pop star poses semi-nude for Playboy, sets off feminist backlash

Share

Halsey has hit back at a fan who has criticised her for appearing in Playboy magazine. She wrote following the reveal, "Cannot believe this is happening!"

Halsey is not willing to let anyone tell her what is and is not suitable for a feminist to do.

Yesterday afternoon, the "Bad at Love" singer posted a photograph of her recent Playboy cover to Instagram and received a barrage of abuse from followers who appeared confused how she could claim to be a women's rights advocate yet pose semi-nude in a magazine which has always been known to promote the titillation of men. "I can show my tits in Playboy, perform at the Nobel Peace, speak at the Planned Parenthood Gala with Hilary Clinton, shake my [expletive] on 300 stages, give a speech at the United Nations, do 150 tequila shots, get a #1 album, and march in the streets of DC all in just ONE year!"

"Newsflash. A woman can be multi dimensional #WeAreNotJustOneThing", she signed off. My body just broke the fuck down.

It's been weeks since snack, candy, and fast food manufacturers across the country chose to prematurely change seasons on us. It combines the candy-coated chocolates with the classic flavors of an Oreo.

Another (male) commenter wrote: "Not the right time, I support women, and as a Feminist, Playboy has historically objectified and discriminated against women of color". "My dad managed a vehicle dealership, wore a suit to work, had a nice watch, was always clean-shaven, handsome, played golf on the weekends. What's up!' And my dad would be like, 'Hi...'" "I'm white-passing. I've accepted that about myself and have never tried to control anything about black culture that's not mine", she said.

"I still have white boys in my life asking me why my nipples are brown", she half-jokes. Every now and then I experience these racial blips.

As Wednesday just-so-happens to mark the 10 anniversary of the hashtag, take an extra good look at the one Halsey chose to use.
