Why The World Needs Halsey

FUSE TV - Why The World Needs Halsey

Halsey exists in extremes. The 20-year-old singer/songwriter, born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, contorts the space around her with a quick wit and a quicker tongue. She's a presence, always has been, successful both online and in person. The reason is almost positively her personality—she might go by a moniker, but she's never been anything but herself.

Her stage title is both an anagram of her first name and a stop deep in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn, where the young starlet spent much of her adolescence. There's an attractive grit to the place, where, if you're lucky, creativity and crime exist side by side. It's there, instead of in a traditional college experience, where she learned to hone her craft.
