For the past couple years Halsey's life has been a whirlwind. She went from being cult-ishly adored on Tumblr to proper bona fide pop star huge in the space of 18 months and we've been tracing her ascent every step of the way (we first talked to the singer at the end of 2014 when she released her debut EP, went on a first date with her in 2015). In between contributing vocals to Bieber's best album, cutting off all her hair and giving her fans a dye or five too, she's been tirelessly touring her debut album since October, looping the world, and then looping it again, in support of Badlands. Recently she completed an extensive jaunt throug Japan—which is frequently the most surreal experience for a touring artist—and below is an intimate look behind the scenes of said tour, which, with a few pauses in June, marches on till August. After that she'll probably need a nice long nap.
