Rising superstar Hasley brought drag to the cover of Advocate Magazine’s January issue, telling readers her “gender identity has always been super fluid”.
The ‘Without Me’ hitmaker recently appeared on the cover of Advocate Magazine’s January issue, channeling the drag king personas of four undeniable musical legends: David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Mick Jagger.
The Advocate is an American LGBT-interest magazine, printed bi-monthly and available by subscription.
Selecting each artist for personal reasons, Halsey has said she chose the male artists because she considers herself to be “an androgynous performer”.
For the incarnation of Jimi Hendrix, the star was dressed in a golden-hued lattice patterned blouse designed by none other than the Maltese men themselves: Charles & Ron.
"I don't identify as nonbinary or gender-fluid. I don't personally feel like I'm at the point in my life where I'm prepared to identify that way," she told the magazine. "Will that change? Possibly. I don't know. But I've never felt any reason to change the way that I refer to my gender identity."
Charles & Ron have been taking the Stateside by storm for a while now, having dressed the likes of Paula Abdul, Ashanti and Mýa.
The fabulous duo recently teamed up with American model Jeana Turner, who rose to fame after revealing the behind the scene abuse she faced while working on set for America’s Next Top Model.

Just last week, Charles & Ron launched their gorgeous new Autumn/Winter collection at New York Fashion Week entitled ‘Hands Of Time / L-Arlogg tal-Lira’’. The designs feature and draw inspiration from the traditional tal-Lira Maltese clocks.
Jessica Pimentel, of Orange is the New Black fame, was also spotted in the audience wearing a lace design from their previous collection, ‘Fabiola’.
