Halsey wants to be Lana Del Rey soooo bad, and we have proof

I’m so embarrassed for her

I honestly believe that it's normal to have a cool girl you admire from afar, on whom you low-key model your entire existence.

But there's a big difference between taking style cues from someone and wanting to cut off her skin and wear it, and that's the direction Halsey seems to be going with Lana Del Rey.

Clearly Halsey wants what Lana has and is willing to copy her every move to get it. So when pictures of Halsey doing cocaine on a yacht surfaced this weekend, I wasn't the slightest bit surprised.

Because what elegant, cat-eyed songstress has talked about doing coke in her music numerous times? Why, Ms. Del Rey, of course.

  • And I'm far from the only one who noticed Halsey's latest transparent attempt to bite Lana's style.

    Irrefutable evidence.

    But this incident is far from the first time Halsey has blatantly ripped off Lana.

    The most obvious example was the fact that Halsey swooped in on Lana's momentary beau, G-Eazy after Lana and Gerald first hooked up at Coachella. Lucky for Lana, there are almost no pictures of the two of them together.

    Halsey and G-Eazy, on the other hand, have been very open about documenting their relationship, like in their infamous bodega-kiss picture.

    Not to mention this video of them singing the (mediocre) song he originally intended to release with Lana.

    Then there's the fact that Halsey has the audacity to smoke cigarettes when it's common knowledge that Lana invented the practice.

    Observe Lana elegantly puffing in a 2012 short film. She's also notorious for smoking during performances, which is the perfect I-don't-give-a-fuck move.

  • And then there's Halsey, who obviously gives a fuck, to the extent that she waited three whole years to tweet about "her" habit.

    Okay girl! We see what you're doing, and it's not subtle.

    Plus, Halsey and Lana have been looking pretty similar lately, even though Lana's generally stuck to one look throughout her career.

    That's actually uncanny. The other stuff is a joke, but this is freaky.

    Really though, I get it. Lana perfectly balances floaty effortlessness with beautiful, curated despair in a way that Halsey is just too clumsy to ever achieve.

    At the end of the day, Halsey is the drunk girl who spills her cranberry vodka on your favorite pair of going-out jeans, and Lana is the girl who offers you a cigarette when you run out of the bar crying about it. Sorry Hals, but imitators never prosper.
