Video Review: Halsey “You Should Be Sad”

Halsey gets out of her Trans Arm. Wearing a black bikini and cowboy hat, she walks to the door and knocks on it. A a person lets her inside. Lit in seafoam green, she walks by people kissing and holding onto one another.

People dance around her in a circle as she stands on the dance floor. They touch and rub against her. She stands in the center and they join in her line dance. She spreads her legs and rubs hay on her thighs. She and the people lie on the floor, touching each other.

Wearing a black strapless dress and long gloves on her hand, she sings as people sit around her.

Wearing a leopard print pants, hoodie and bra top, she dances on a pyramid of hay. A golden chandelier hangs on the ceiling.

In silhouette, she tilts her head back as she sits on a horse. Naked, with long blonde hair covering her private parts, she lies on the white horse.
