Halsey admits being a musician is 'pretty boring' compared to being a mother

Asia's Tech News Daily

It’s safe to assume that most would say the life of a famous musician would be rather exciting, no? Well, according to Halsey, being a mother actually makes “being a musician seem pretty boring.”

As the singer, who welcomed their son Ender with partner Alev Aydin in July told Billboard, since his arrival, everything has changed, including the need for recognition.

Reflecting on their new role, while talking about their new album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, Halsey shared, “I’m glad we got to make this album when we did because being a mother to my son makes being a musician seem pretty boring.”

“Something really amazing happened when I did have my son, which is the absolute, glorious eradication and death of my ego,” they continued. “Nothing matters when I go home to him, he thinks I’m perfect and great and everything.”

Because of this newfound contentment in those other aspects of her life, recognition is no longer of much importance to them, instead it’s about the music. Even admitting that if wouldn’t be too bothered about once again not receiving any GRAMMY nominations for it.

“I think…,” they expressed, followed by a brief pause, “I don’t care. The most important thing to me is that it continues to have a life and continues to grow and burns and burrows slowly with the audience instead of coming in fast and burning out just as fast, like most records seem to do these days.” They continued, “longevity can’t be manufactured.” Adding that when it starts becoming about recognition and awards, it stunts their ability to produce their “best art.”

“I have one leg pretty deep into this industry at this point. I’m not a veteran, but I’m certainly not just starting out either. When I concern myself with awards, it stops me from making the best art that I possibly can,” the “Without Me” singer said.

With that said, they added, ”But should the album be recognized for what it is — which is a singular piece of art and a once-in-a-generation collaboration between very different artists and very similar people? I think that would be nice.”

Even when Halsey was not included in the 2021 GRAMMY Award nominations, despite the successful release of their album Manic which included hit song “Without Me,” they had a similar attitude about the whole thing.

”I’ve been thinking and wanted to choose my words carefully because a lot of people have extended sympathy and apology to me since the GRAMMY nominations,” Halsey wrote on their Instagram story at the time.

“The GRAMMYS are an elusive process,” the post continued. “It can often be about behind the scenes private performances, knowing the right people, campaigning through the grapevine, with the right handshake and ‘bribes’ that can be just ambiguous enough to pass as ‘not bribes.’”

”It’s not always about the music or quality or culture. While I am THRILLED for my talented friends who were recognized this year, I am hoping for more transparency or reform. But I’m sure this post will blacklist me anyway.”

Hmmm, maybe she called it, or just didn’t “campaign” hard enough, and we’ll have to wait and see how 2022 works out. Either way, it’s pretty obvious, as long as the music is out their and being listened to and enjoyed… then they really don’t care.
