Halsey Ends TikTok Trend With ‘OG Tumblr Girls’ Pics: Look + Listen

Sorry, but Halsey gets the final say in the battle of the original Tumblr girls.

On Sunday (8.21,) Halsey took to TikTok’s “Teenage Dirtbag” trend that involves users sharing throwback images from their teenage years set to a sped-up version of Wheatus‘ signature 2000 hit.

Captioning the video “Doing this trend as an OG Tumblr girlie,” the 27-year superstar singer was featured in her present day wearing a bold blue eyeshadow look. “Sorry but it’s over.”

As the song’s chorus repeats, so do her throwback images followed by a rapid succession of the singer circa 2014, including stylish Polaroid snaps, her blue, gray, blond and pink hair styles, and a yearbook image of the pre-fame artist (born Ashley Frangipane) with glasses and side-swept hair.

Referring to the lyrics to her 2015 single “Colors” from her debut studio album, Badlands.“You were red…” Halsey captioned the video,

Not the first celeb to join the “Teenage Dirtbag” trend, Joe JonasCharli XCX and Paris Hilton have all joined in on the fun, which has caused Wheatus’ streaming numbers to soar in light of the song’s new popularity. According to Luminate, “Teenage Dirtbag” jumped from 932,000 official on-demand U.S. streams for the tracking week ending Aug. 4 to 2.1 million the week ending in Aug. 11, though the track has yet to make a re-appearance on a Billboard chart.
