This is...sensational.

Halsey probably reads a million rumours about herself every day and we can't imagine the strength it takes not to respond to every single one. Halsey clearly has a lot of self control. Though the singer is best at making music, she also knows when and how to address the drama that comes along with being famous.

Anyone will tell you that hanging out with someone new doesn't mean you're dating and rumours about Halsey and John Mayer have inspired the 'Without Me' singer to address the phenomenon of women constantly being romantically linked to their friends.

In response to people saying that she and John were an item, Halsey simply offered a suggestion to those nosey people making assumptions.

"I just had a ground breaking idea. What if...we let female artists...have friends...without assuming that they are sleeping together. I know I know. It’s like, completely ambitious but like, imagine if we like, tried?"

A groundbreaking idea indeed.

Others chimed in with their own suggestions and experiences. "What if we stopped caring who was sleeping with whom, cept our partners," wrote one Twitter user. Another novel idea!

The top comment on the thread was an Ariana Grande gif that perfectly echoed Halsey's initial statement.

Truthfully, not every relationship or friendship needs to have a sexual component to it. There really is such a thing as having a platonic friend and it can make things difficult when others decide to make assumptions about the nature of the relationship.

This isn't the first time Halsey has had to shut down rumours about her love life. Over the summer, an old photo of her and Machine Gun Kelly at the beach led to the singer telling folks to "mind they damn business". Which, I mean, fair.

Halsey is open with her fans when it comes to her song-writing and social media. When Halsey has any relationship information she wants to share with her fans, we're almost positive she'll be the first one to let them know. In the mean time, let this lady live, please.

Anyway, you tell em, queen!
