The interviewer noted that "the closest thing to queer representation you get in pop are songs sung by straight women, and they're more about experimental hookups". Halsey replied: "Oh, yeah. Bisexuality as a taboo: 'Don't tell your mom', or 'We shouldn't do this', or 'This feels so wrong but it's so right'." This could be interpreted as a dig at Demi Lovato, whose 2015 hit 'Cool For The Summer' references same-sex hookups and includes the line "Don't tell your mother". Demi's fans picked up on this, and it wasn't long before Lovato herself addressed the drama, tweeting: "You know a song is a hit when people are still talking about the lyrics two years later," followed by the hashtag #shhhhdonttellyourmother.
Hmmm ... what do you think? Is Demi justified in being upset with Halsey's remarks? More stories:
