On October 10, Halsey took the Saturday Night Live stage in a black skintight catsuit. Fans marveled at the look, especially since they had given birth to her first child, son Ender, just three months prior — but the singer insisted that they are not trying to make people believe that she's purposely trying to lose the baby weight.

"I am posting this because no matter what I do people are going to talk about my body," they stated in an Instagram post that showed off their postpartum figure. "It is [a] confusing symptom of being in the public eye so rather than complain I am going to give you something real to talk about!"

While fans "were quick to say how good" they looked, the musician called the compliments "a weird feeling" since their "body has felt like a stranger’s for a long time."

They then addressed the set of photos she shared in her post.

"I uphold myself to honesty to the point of over sharing sometimes but this feels important," they noted. "The first picture [above] on this slide is days after my baby was already born. A lot of people don’t know that you still look pregnant for a while after. It is still changing and I am letting it. I have no interest in working out right now. I’m too tired and too busy playing with my darling son."

The "Graveyard" crooner pointed out that their SNL ensemble was a "custom tailored outfit" seen under perfect lighting, explaining they wore it "so I could feel good and do my job."

"I do not want to feed the Illusion that you’re meant to feel and look 'great' immediately postpartum," the mom-of-one stated. "That is not my narrative currently."

"I will never have my 'pre baby body back' no matter how it changes physically because I have now had a baby! And that has altered me forever; emotionally, spiritually, and physically," the star continued. "That change is permanent. And I don’t want to go back!"

The New Jersey native concluded her message by confessing, "In the spirit of honesty, I’m really tired and not a superhuman and this is really hard. Doing my best to serve my art and my family whilst keeping it all so very real. Love."
