Halsey is an anagram of my first name Ashley and it’s also a street in Brooklyn where I spent a lot of time growing up. I lived in like a friday night lights town in the middle of New Jersey and in weekends I’d take the train into the city. Halseystreet is where a friend of mine lived and it’s where I kind of cultivated my character throughout my adolescense. It was kind of a life that assured me that I wasn’t a complete weirdo. (x)
