Halsey “could quit music” for ESPN NBA announcing job


Last year, pop singer-songwriter Halsey created a Twitter account for the sole purpose of influencing the NBA, frequently covering his fanhood of the Los Angeles Lakers.

The artist tweeted on Sunday, presumably jokingly, that she was considering quitting music to pursue her true vocation: to broadcast NBA games on ESPN.

The network seems in it:

One would assume that ESPN would consider bringing in Halsey for a celebrity segment in the game at some point. The network could also try to feature their commentary as a side-cast at some point, perhaps for a Lakers playoff game or something.

The @halseyandone account took a hiatus between June and October, but the singer announced that she was back with a literal plus one – baby ender riley, which she and her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin, had in July.

Halsey got the revelation of his NBA announcer aspirations after skipping the Halloween revelry to sit on the grounds of Staples Center for the Lakers’ win over the Houston Rockets on Sunday:

Halsey, 27, won the “Favorite Pop / Rock Song” category at the American Music Awards in 2019 for her song “Without Me”. Her collaboration with The Chainsmokers on their song “Closer” won three Billboard Music Awards and was nominated for Best Pop Duo / Group Performance at the 2017 Grammy’s.
