Halsey didn’t say what the procedure was for, but asked for GRAMMY attendees to ‘be gentle’ since they’re feeling ‘fragile.’
Halsey isn’t letting surgery recovery keep them home from the 2022 GRAMMY Awards! The singer, 27, revealed they underwent a procedure just days before the Las Vegas event, scheduled for Sunday, April 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. It turns out this isn’t the first time Halsey has had surgery before music’s biggest night, finding themselves in the same spot three years ago.
“The last time I attended the Grammys was 2017 and it was 3 days after I had my first Endometriosis surgery. I walked the carpet with my stitches still in,” they explained. “As luck would have it, I’m attending tomorrow for the first time in years and I had surgery again (you guessed it) 3 days ago,” they added, captioning a selfie wearing baby blue scrubs and a face mask in hospital. Halsey signed off, “Only posting this to say, if you see me be gentle lol I’m fragile. Fragile but excited :).”
Following the hospital scrub photo, they gave a look at the rest of their week which included a sweat heart-shaped basket filled with fresh lemons. They also snapped a pic of some gorgeous white flowers, and a cheeky selfie that showed a t-shirt reading, “Angels have no gender but lots of sex.” Finally, they ended the gallery post with an adorable son Ender Ridley, who is now 9 months old. The Edison, New Jersey native welcomed their first child with partner Alev Aydin in July 2021.
