Halsey sat down with Zane Lowe of Apple Music’s Beats 1 for an extensive interview, and she got candid about her now-defunct romance with Yungblud.
Halsey, 25, dated the the British musician (whose real name is Dominic Richard Harrison almost a year before reportedly splitting up in fall 2019.
The relationship, she told Lowe, wound up inspiring her musically, leading her to write her first-ever love song.
“I was really happy. I was really happy with my life. I was thinking about the night that he and I met because I had told the story so many times,” she explained.
“And every time I told it, it got better and better and better and more romantic and it wasn’t raining. It wasn’t raining like in the story, the streets are shining wet and I need to tell this romantic story,” Hasley continued. “And I’d never written a love song before. Not one without a punchline.”
Meanwhile, the “Without Me” singer has been stepping out plenty with new beau Evan Peters, and on Monday she celebrated the “American Horror Story” star’s birthday with a sweet Instagram post.
“Happy birthday darling,” she wrote in the caption of a romantic photo of her and Peters. “I can’t imagine a world without you in it.”
