TOP STORY: Halsey’s Unshaven Armpits on the Cover of ‘Rolling Stone’ Causes a Media Frenzy

Rolling Stone magazine released the cover of their annual The Hot Issue with cover star Halsey looking gorgeous with minimal makeup, a white halter tank top and new curly pixie cut. Entitled “Pop’s Queen of Chaos,” what really caught viewers attention was the fact that the singer armpits weren’t fully shaved.

If the outrage seems ridiculous, you’re not alone. It shouldn’t be shocking that women have body hair. While most of Halsey’s fans, including fellow pop artist Demi Lovato, cheered on her au-natural cover, some people left comments like “thought you were a millionaire just buy some wax,” and “can’t get over the unshaven armpits” with the green/going to throw up emoji face.
The Hot Issue, which hits stands on July 2, was praised by singer Zara Larsson. She commented “I loooove the fact that they didn’t edit the armpits like most magazines would do. Women are not little babies who don’t have body hair.”
