As is befitting a superstar of her height and stature, Halsey has used her SNL performance to regain her power. The singer was on the show as the host, and she put on a powerful performance as the musical guest, as confessions from an ex-boyfriend who cheated lit up behind her.
She explained her performance more in detail on Twitter the next day.
Many fans suspect the performance and song are about rapper G-Eazy. The two were in a very public relationship from 2017-2018. Romance rumors started when they released their song “Him & I.” In the song, he even references knowing better than to cheat on her. Halsey’s note to fans about their breakup led a lot of them to believe he cheated.”I am eager to continue the upcoming passage of time dedicating myself to my art and my career… I wish him the best,” she said.
She’s not the first person to use their art to call someone out for cheating. Beyonce famously wrote a whole album about Jay-Z’s infidelities. And Cardi B’s song “Be Careful” is about past boyfriends being unfaithful and asking her current man to protect her heart.
