With ‘Closer,’ Halsey Takes Her Clearest Step Toward Superstardom

FUSE TV - With ‘Closer,’ Halsey Takes Her Clearest Step Toward Superstardom

If there is a conventional route to becoming a pop star, then Halsey—the 21-year-old singer-songwriter who has become one of the more sought-after mainstream artists in the country over the past 18 months—has not taken it. 

Sure, there were familiar beats within Halsey’s come-up: the rabid social following, the fast-growing festival crowds, the prime opening slot on a major tour. From her teenage days on MySpace to her headline-grabbing slot at South By Southwest 2015 to her no-holds-barred collection of interview quotes, Halsey has shrewdly positioned herself as an uncompromising artist with alluring stories to unspool.
