Speaking to Rolling Stone back in 2016, the twenty-six-year-old discussed their suicide attempt when they were seventeen and how they have been diagnosed as having bipolar.

She has had a chaotic life so far...

"I grew up in a really chaotic household... There was always s*** being thrown," she explained. "I didn’t like being Ashley Frangipane," she said, “It was a person I thought was weak and silly and sad."

So where did the name Halsey come from?

When she was seventeen and was recovering from her suicide attempt, the singer was dating a man 6 years her senior and he lived on Halsey Street in New York.

This was when she wrote Ghost, and after uploading it to Soundcloud, she woke up the next day to messages from 5 different recording labels.

And the rest is history...

After touring with The Kooks and performing several original songs, Halsey released her debut Room 93 that immediately made it into the US Billboard 200. Her debut album "Badlands" came in 2015 and after it was certified platinum along with 4 of its singles, she has continued to rise to fame over the years after producing more music and collaborating with other artists such as The Chainsmokers.

They are a very active figure on social media...

And their recent update on social media has received endless support from her fans...

The singer, who is pregnant with their first child, has updated their pronouns on Instagram and Twitter...

But hasn't opened up about their gender identity just yet.

Halsey has clearly seen the supportive messages from fans...

Sharing "thank you" and a love heart to her Instagram stories.

Many have praised Halsey for giving people the confidence to speak openly about their own gender identity...

Back in February, Halsey opened up about her thoughts surrounding gender identity on Instagram...

​"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."

Although, it's important to note, just because Halsey has changed their pronouns...

That doesn't automatically mean she identifies as non-binary.
