The openly bi singer performed in the country this week
Russian fans have praised Halsey for taking a stand against the country’s anti-gay laws.
The openly bi singer visited Russia this week to perform in support of her second album ‘Hopeless Fountain Kingdom‘.
During her visit, she posted some thoughts to Instagram about being in a place where she could be legally discriminated against for her sexuality or fined for “spreading gay propaganda” to under 18s, due to Russian gay propaganda laws.
“I’m out in Moscow and feelin unlucky,” Halsey wrote. “Scared the police gonna keep me in custody. And all these kids love me, but Russia don’t fuck with me. Cause I wrote some songs about women who fuck with me.” Read more via NME
I'm out in Moscow and feelin unlucky. Scared the police gonna keep me in custody. And all these kids love me, but Russia don't fuck with me. Cause I wrote some songs about women who fuck with me, I got a rainbow 10 feet up above me. and this what I meant when I said that they shush me. But no one can judge me. Expect no less of me. In all of these faces, there's greatness among me. 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 I love you Moscow, you were badass tonight.
