Halsey is the stage name of New Jersey native Ashley Frangipane. It is an anagram of her first name and reference to the Halsey Street subway stop and street in Brooklyn where she used to live. With over 14,000 friends on MySpace as a tween, she began posting covers of songs on YouTube. In 2012, she posted “The Haylor Song,” a parody of Taylor Swift’s hit song “I Knew You Were Trouble” that created controversy over the nature of the lyrics.
