Halsey’s Unshaven Armpits, Curly Brown Hair On Rolling Stone Cover Cause A Stir, Demi Lovato, Zara Larsson Respond

Halsey is enjoying the honour of appearing on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, but her appearance in the photo has been raising eyebrows due to her uncharacteristic short-and-curly hairdo and her unshaven armpits.

On Thursday, the “Without Me” singer shared the cover of Rolling Stone‘s “Hot Issue” with her 14.4 million Instagram followers, in which her hair is significantly different than the way she’s worn it in the past. Wearing an off-white tank top, she loops her thumbs underneath the straps on either side of her head, proudly displaying her hairy underarms.

To say fans noticed is an understatement, and she received numerous comments pointing out her pits.

“EXCUSE ME THE ARMPIT STUBBLE?!?!?! I’M SCREAMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,” wrote one commenter, while another applauded her au naturel look. “Weird side note but I appreciate that they didn’t edit your underarms and that you have your natural hair. Keepin it 100.”

Meanwhile, others were struck with her skin tone, thinking that she appeared darker than before.

“Why does Halsey look black here? Who changed her looks and skin colour? She usually doe[s] not look like this!” wrote one comment, while another added, “I was shocked honestly to see a brown Halsey.”

Another comment read: “When I saw her on ‘SNL” she was white and blonde. This doesn’t look like the same person.”

The likes of Demi Lovato and Zara Larsson were among people commenting on the cover, with both stars praising Halsey and Rolling Stone.

Lovato added, according to Metro: “There so much yes about this picture idk where to start.”

In the accompanying Rolling Stone interview, the 24-year-old singer — whose real name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane — discusses how she’s been dealing with criticism since the beginning of her career.

“The funniest thing is that the biggest battle that I’ve had to overcome in my career was not being bisexual, was not being biracial, was not being bipolar,” she tells RS. “It was everybody thinking that I was exploiting those things.”
