Halsey is leaning in to her queer identity in a new cover story for Paper Magazine. The singer was joined by model Caroline Miner Smith for a sexually charged photo shoot featuring Halsey in all kinds of strappy and revealing outfits. The duo even faked a little intimacy for the camera.
In her interview for the story, Halsey opened up about acting out intimacy with Lauren Jauregui for their duet “Strangers.” Halsey explained how that song “just happened.”
“I was thinking about this person I was spending time with,” Halsey adds. “We were having sex and going to dinner and whatever, but I asked myself, ‘When was the last time I kissed them on the mouth? I don’t even remember.'”
