In an interview released Friday — which was conducted before the breakup — we’re getting a closer look at how important the relationship was.
Well, to her obviously. Maybe not so much to him.
She told Marie Claire at the time:
“He’s out of his fucking mind. I love everything about him.”
Awww. Not everything as it turns out. That whole infidelity thing is not an attractive quality. (Allegedly.)
She speaks about the first time they met at a party over two years prior to getting together:
“We both knew right away. We just didn’t act on it. I had just gotten out of a breakup; he just got out of a breakup. We were both, like, at the peak of our careers. Me, Myself & I had gone seven times platinum. Closer was, like, the biggest thing in the world. I just didn’t have time.”
Halsey goes on to paint a picture of their idyllic off-days together after they finally did seal the deal on their relationship:
“If we wake up and we’re in the mood to be old-school, I’ll put on a sundress and a hat, and he’ll wear his hair slicked back and his shirt tucked in, and we’ll get in his ’65 Mustang and drive down to Malibu and go eat in a cafe by the beach and sing Amy Winehouse in the car.”
She also reveals to the mag the couple would spend their vacations “driving out into the woods, holing up in a cabin for five days, and skinny-dipping in a river.”
Oh man. That sounds so perfect for her! And the saddest thing is that she knew it.
“I’ve had partners who don’t want to play along. It feels stupid. I love curating an experience, changing it up. And he’s so that way with me. I haven’t found someone who matches every version of me until him. Like, he’s my left sneaker. For every version of him, there’s a version of me to match.”
That is just too damn adorable.
But it was what she said about her potential future that’s the most heartbreaking:
“Once my tour is over, I feel like anything could happen. I could decide I want to move to Italy for a year and write. I could get pregnant. I finally have enough stability in my career where I can take a breath. I feel like I can let life happen.”
And one last comment that really seems in retrospect like tempting fate:
“I’m also really happy, so it’s hard. You’re almost wishing something bad would happen, but you don’t want to sabotage your life.”
Keep an eye on your man, y’all!
