Low on self-esteem, so you run on gasoline. If you don’t know what that means, then we’re sorry to say but you have never indulged yourself in a good old Halsey song spam. Ashley Nicole Frangipane, who is better known by her stage name “Halsey”, has been making rounds of our iTunes library and YouTube searches. And when we seek to find out her net worth, we were utterly shaken.
Halsey was born on the 29th of September, 1994, in Edison, New Jersey. She belongs to the Frangipane family and was interested in the cello and the guitar from a very young age. However, as all blossoms come to a wither, she was diagnosed at 17 with bipolar disorder, a condition characterized by frequent mood shifts and irritation. She even attempted to end her life. But little did she know that there was a brighter road ahead.
The young American bi-racial singer started out her career as nothing but a youthful Tumblr and YouTube star, gaining her fan following mostly through her parody of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble”.
She resorted to recreational drugs and admits to having dated a heroin addict. After graduating from school, she opted for community college, before eventually dropping out and continuing to live all on her own.
Frangipane gained worldwide popularity when she uploaded a song titled “Ghost” on her SoundCloud, which had at that time been in dedication to her ex-boyfriend. She gained wholesome popularity overnight and was signed by Astralwerks, opting to enjoy musical and lyrical freedom.
In 2014, she toured with the Kooks, after which she released her debut extended play Room 93 in 2015. Her album gained wholesome popularity overnight, with the Top Heatseekers chart ranking her as number third.
That was the same year that she released her debut studio album, conveniently titled “Badlands”. She chose the stage name “Halsey” as it was an anagram of her real name and also the name of a childhood street that she frequented.
The album was a worldwide hit, with songs like “Gasoline” and “Colors” reaching tremendous heights. Since then, she has collaborated with tons of world-famous celebrities and singers, including The Chainsmokers and Justin Beiber.
After her first release, she featured on a song by Justin Beiber titled “The Feeling”, produced for his album “The Purpose”. Later in 2016, she collaborated with The Chainsmokers on “Closer”, a song that gained worldwide fame and recognition.
After that, she featured on the official Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack and participated in a suicide prevention campaign. At the Women’s March, she recited a poem titled “A Story Like Mine”, in which she shared stories of personal abuse and sexual assault.
How Rich is Halsey?
So what do you think her net worth could be? Two million? Three million? Looking at her career, some might even guess a whopping twenty! Her actual net worth lies somewhere in between, at an amazing 12 million US dollars.
We take inspiration from Halsey’s story, and we wish the young star success and freedom of self.
