Halsey Reveals Lupus Battle Ahead of her 5th Album Release

Halsey has made the decision to be open and honest with her fans on her recent health issues as she gets ready to release her fifth album.

The singer revealed on Instagram on Tuesday that she appears to be battling lupus, a chronic illness where the immune system of the body targets its own internal tissues and organs.

To cut the story short, I feel fortunate to be alive. Long story short, I wrote an album,” the 29-year-old shared on Instagram. “The End is where it starts. it’s out now.” Her post included hashtags for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Lupus Research Alliance; Halsey is donating to both organizations in conjunction with the launch of her new song release.

According to the Lupus Foundation of America, lupus is a chronic autoimmune illness that can harm organs, joints, skin, and other bodily components. Leukemia and lymphoma are cancers that affect both blood cells and the immune system.

Later in the song, Halsey mentions her potential near-death illness: “When I met you, I said I would never die / But the joke was always mine, ’cause I’m racing against time.”

Halsey has already opened up about her health issues in public. In 2022, she disclosed that she had been diagnosed with endometriosis in 2016. She also mentioned that she had experienced a number of health issues after giving birth to her son in 2021. She later revealed on Instagram that she had been diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, or POTS, mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), Sjogren’s disease, and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

Halsey’s Early life:

Ashley Nicolette Frangipane (born September 29, 1994), professionally known as Halsey, is an American singer and songwriter. She is well-known for her unique singing voice and has been nominated for three Grammy Awards, won three Billboard Music Awards, and got a Billboard Women in Music Award. In 2020, she was listed among the world’s 100 most important people on Time’s yearly list.

Her debut studio album, Badlands (2015), was received with critical and financial acclaim, entering at number two on the Billboard 200. Likewise with its hits “Colors,” “Gasoline,” and “New Americana,” the latter of which made her maiden Billboard Hot 100 entry at number 60.

Her second studio album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom (2017), had a more “radio-friendly” sound than her previous efforts; it topped the Billboard 200, and its songs “Now or Never” and “Bad at Love” both reached the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, with the latter reaching in the top five.

Halsey’s third studio album, Manic (2020), was her best-selling album globally.

Her fourth album, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power (2021), shifted away from her previous style and into a darker industrial vibe.

In 2020, Billboard announced that Halsey had sold over one million albums and garnered more than six billion streams in the United States.

Her early musical influences included Brand New, Justin Bieber, and Alanis Morissette. Her parents had many jobs, so the family moved around a lot when she was growing up. As she grew into a teenager, she enrolled in six different schools. Her upbringing was Catholic.

She was admitted to community college due to financial hardship after graduating from New Jersey’s high school, but she eventually dropped out.

She attempted suicide when she was 17 years old, spending over three weeks in the hospital. She was subsequently diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
