In case you don't know by now, Halsey is a renaissance artist.

She stunned Saturday Night Live audiences as both host and musical guest, an impressive feat very few have achieved. Donald Glover did it last spring and Paul Simon pulled duty back in 1975.

Not only is Halsey — whose real name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane — a renowned singer and songwriter, but the 24-year-old wields a paintbrush as deftly as the microphone.

Studio audiences witnessed the multitasker working her magic as she sang "Eastside" for her second set of the night.


Halsey painted a self-portrait upside-down across the makeshift canvas floor. It was a groundbreaking performance that will probably never be attempted by another SNL host again.

Watch Halsey's performance of "Eastside" in the YouTube clip from SNL below.

People can't stop talking about her performance that ranked among the season's best, so far.









She made quite an impression on the uninitiated.





Flashy backup dancers are fierce and all, but her solo, a transformative performance, set the bar high for future SNL hosts.




Standing on the SNL stage was a dream come true moment for Halsey. In her opening monologue, she talked about how much she loved watching the show as a kid and "especially admired" the women cast members who "never cared what they looked like, what they sounded like or what anybody thought of them. They were just funny."

Now she's the one inspiring others with her legendary performance.

So, when is she coming back to SNL for round two?

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
