Halsey may be “Bad at Love,” but she’s good at station up for what she believes in.
The “Bad at Love” singer, 23, didn’t spend too much time celebrating her two American Music Awards nominations Thursday — instead, she voiced her beating that other womanlike artists were all but left out of the fun.
“Really respected to have perceived an @AMAs assignment but really unhappy to hear nearby exclusively male names…such a missed opportunity,” she wrote. “So many implausible womanlike artists have expelled this year. Hoping the coming endowment shows give them the credit that is due to them.”
Halsey was nominated both for Collaboration of the Year and Favorite Song — Pop/Rock for “Closer,” her corner bid with the Chainsmokers.
But her success as a womanlike artist seems to be an exception.
Of the 21 categories that are not privately designated male or female, just 5 featured a womanlike nominee, including Halsey’s two nominations, and Little Big Town’s singular assignment (the rope facilities two women and two men).
The nominations — which are dynamic around fan interactions as reflected in Billboard repository and on Billboard.com — relate an wholly male-dominated 2017 in the music world.
In September, Taylor Swift, with “Look What You Made Me Do,” became the first womanlike artist to have a No. 1 strain on the Billboard Hot 100 given “Closer” took the pretension in Nov 2016.

Swift also became the first womanlike artist with no facilities to hit No. 1. given “Hello” by Adele dominated the charts from Nov 2015 to Jan 2016.
