Halsey took a moment on Twitter to talk about her performance, and to also call out her online detractors. “Very proud of the emotional performance i did with @JadeChynoweth on @NBCTheVoice tonight,” she wrote on Twitter. “And also very proud to have pissed off the homophobic viewers at home who missed the message. Thanks for watching.”

First things first, Halsey tweeted about how proud she was of what she achieved with the performance. After it aired, she wrote: “Very proud of the emotional performance i did with @JadeChynoweth on @NBCTheVoice tonight. And also very proud to have pissed off thw homophobic viewers at home who missed the message. Thanks for watching.”

She then added: “Represention matters. Thanks @NBCTheVoice for giving a space for this vision to come to life. And thank you @JadeChynoweth for being an incredible human who used her body like the ultimate instrument for this collaboration.” We are so lucky to have a bisexual star like Halsey in pop right now.

If we can all take part in a quick throwback to the olden days for a moment: It’s 2004. Low-rise jeans are in. Ashlee Simpson is in a red and black plaid cropped sweater. It’s Saturday night. Jude Law (as handsome as ever) introduces Simpson for her second song on Saturday Night Live … but the wrong track begins to play! For those of you who don’t remember this cringe-worthy moment, Simpson’s song “Pieces of Me” began to play—including her pre-recorded vocals—while she looked around confused, expecting to lip sync to a completely different song. Oops!

We’re so proud of Halsey for using her performance to express the many ways that love exists in this world—and for sticking up for herself and that love amid backlash. We have no doubt this will make an impact, especially to LGBTQ+ viewers who might be struggling on their journeys right now.
