Powerhouse singer and songwriter Halsey makes her Playboy magazine cover debut for the September/October 2017 Music Issue. No topic is off limits as she answers Playboy’s 20Qs and is more outspoken than ever on race, reproductive freedom, her new album, and how she emotionally invests in her fans.

“I’ve always collected vintage Playboy issues. 5 feet from my bed there’s a 4 foot canvas of a 1971 vintage cover that I wake up to every single day!” said Halsey. “It’s truly an honor to be featured on the cover of a magazine that has always been the embodiment of sensuality, intelligence, humor and class.”

“We are absolutely thrilled to present Halsey to our readers,” said Cooper Hefner, Playboy’s Chief Creative Officer. “She’s the kind of courageous and provocative artist that perfectly represents the modern Playboy ethos.”
