Halsey Responds to Backlash Over Biopic Starring Millie Bobby Brown

Halsey hits back at critics who wondered why the singer should have a film made about their lives. “I didn’t show up anywhere and ask someone to make a movie about me,” Halsey posted on social media.

Negative feedback on a potential Halsey biopic has been swirling around on Twitter this week, after the singer – who uses she/she pronouns – shared Jimmy Fallon that a feature film about their lives was in the making.

The TV host suggested that: Weird stuff star Millie Bobby Brown would be a great Halsey on screen. When Brown found out, she posted on her Instagram Stories that she would be “sooooo down” to take on the part.

And that’s where the drama started.

People took to Twitter to wonder why there would be a Halsey biopic at all.

“What’s so interesting about her life that she deserves a biopic?” one Twitter user early

“I thought those were just for legends like Aretha, Elvis and Ray Charles.”

Another user wrote“Who asks for a Halsey biopic”, which prompted comments like “literally nobody”.

Halsey decided to respond to the backlash herself, posting on Twitter: “I didn’t show up anywhere and asked someone to make a movie about me. A studio bought the rights to make it ONE DAY and I said ‘ok! cool .’ Best thing that ever happened to me because the guy hired to write it became my baby daddy!”

This shows how long a potential movie is in the making. In 2017, Halsey met director and writer Alev Aydin – today he is their partner and the father of their son, Ender.

Alev followed Halsey on tour and interviewed her over the years. At the time together, Halsey said, “After being friends for a long time, we fell in love.”

The film has now been put on hold, as – as Halsey put it – Aydin went from director to “lead character.”

In the same interview with Jimmy Fallon that started this whole mess, Halsey agreed that Brown would be perfect to play her on the big screen.

“It’s kind of creepy how much we look alike,” they said. “It’s like, ‘Oh no, we kind of look like sisters.’”

Brown recently opened about the struggles to be oversexualized by the media now that she’s 18.

“It can be really overwhelming,” Brown continued. “I’ve definitely dealt with that more in the last two weeks after I turned 18. [I’m] definitely see a difference between the way people act and the way the press and social media react to my coming of age.”

“I think social media is the worst place of all time,” Brown continued. “I don’t post anything personal anymore. You’re not going to see that part of me. You’re going to get to see the things I choose to bring into the world.”
