“These trophies they were supposed to be a kind of validation for the work heartbreaking and painful that he had to write a song and give it life. And to be honest with you, I really believed that fairy tale,” he admitted.
But at the same time, Halsey wanted to thank you for the recognition to Love, “for being the most important awards voting followers”.
“And thank you to the ‘fans’ because they are those who really care about the music, and these awards by giving them a voice,” he said.
