Halsey’s Strength Shines Through in New Song “The End”

2 Mins read

Halsey’s legions of fans were surprised and deeply moved this week with the release of her new single, “The End,” and the accompanying revelation of a private health struggle.

The song, a hauntingly beautiful ballad, serves as the opening track for her upcoming, yet-to-be-titled fifth album. It delves into the raw emotions of navigating love in the face of serious illness.

“The End” isn’t just emotionally resonant; it’s a deeply personal disclosure. Halsey, through social media posts, shared glimpses of her two-year medical journey for the first time. The vulnerability was palpable – grainy videos showed her receiving treatment, a stark contrast to the glamorous persona she often portrays on stage.

In a surprising twist, a follow-up post revealed specific diagnoses: systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and a rare T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder. While both conditions are currently managed, Halsey acknowledges they’ll likely be a lifelong companion.

The resilience in her message, however, is undeniable. “Long story short, I’m lucky to be alive,” she wrote on Instagram. “Short story long, I wrote an album.”

The raw footage paints a picture of determination. One video shows her grimacing as she massages her legs, medical tape a stark reminder of her struggle. “Seriously, I feel like an old lady,” she says, her voice laced with humor despite the situation. But then comes the defiance: “I’m having a rebirth… I’m not going to be sick… I’m just going to get to redo my 20s in my 30s.”

Halsey’s strength extends beyond her personal battle. The release of “The End” coincides with donations to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Lupus Research Alliance. It’s a powerful act of advocacy, raising awareness for these conditions while offering solace to those facing similar battles.

The opening lyrics of “The End” echo the emotional rollercoaster of her journey: “Every couple of years now, a doctor says I’m sick… And at first it was my brain, then a skeleton in pain.” These lines are a stark contrast to Halsey’s past openness about other health issues, including Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjogren’s syndrome, and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.

“The End” marks a new chapter for Halsey, one tinged with vulnerability and strength. It’s a testament to the human spirit’s ability to overcome adversity, a story that will undoubtedly resonate with anyone who has ever faced a health challenge. The song promises to be a powerful addition to her repertoire, and the album a deeply personal exploration of her experience.
