Is this a weird coincidence or is Halsey trying to tell us something? Halsey and her on-again, off-again boyfriend, G-Eazy, made our hearts hurt last week when they announced for the second time this year that they broke up. Now, the singer released her music video for “Without Me” and the lead guy in it looks awfully similar to her ex. He’s tall, has tattoos, and long hair…hmmm.
In the video, Halsey has to take care of her drunk boyfriend, who yells in her face during an argument and in the end, he is seen getting into a cop car. Life imitating art? G-Eazy was also arrested this past May for assault and cocaine possession. The duo seemed like a good match but ultimately, “they just can’t seem to get past their previous issues,” a source told Us Weekly.
The 24-year-old wrote on Twitter and Instagram, “The ‘Without Me’ video is out now! This video was made with my friend Colin Tilley and it was a really amazing and emotional process. The story is a reflection of a combination of relationships I’ve been in, or watched the people I love go through. It’s a reminder that you deserve more. And it’s okay to not want to be taken advantage of. By your partners, your friends, your family. You deserve happiness. Don’t be afraid of going and finding it. As always, art is meant to be left with interpretation. If you see your story in this, I hope you hear me speaking to you loud and clear. All my love.”
Halsey is a fan of cryptic messages because she also shared some mysterious tweets on Oct. 24, possibly alluding to her breakup with the “No Limit” rapper. She said, “Reminder to self: Happiness is not a replacement for misery. It’s an addiction. Pain will always be there. But that’s okay. U allow happiness to join as another option. So when the time comes, it’s there waiting, existing; a possibility for when you’re ready to choose.”
