Halsey Breaks Toe Trying To Save Butterfly


Halsey managed to simultaneously warm the hearts of lepidopterists and delight podophiliacs on Instagram this week.

The pop star on Wednesday shared a photo of a beautiful butterfly that she attempted to rescue and a pic of a gnarly injury to her middle toe caused by the rescue attempt.

“I was trying to save a hurt butterfly in the jungle. I broke my toe,” she captioned the photos. “Turns out the butterfly was already dead.”

Halsey added a touch of levity to the agony of de-feet.

“I have alien feet I know,” she said. “I sacrificed having nice feet when I committed to a life of dancing on stages and saving dead butterflies.”

Admitting “this hurts,” Halsey told fans to “catch me hobbling around!”

While the singer sets aside her collection of open-toed shoes, she can take solace in knowing her heart was in the right place even if her foot wasn't.

“I’m sure the butterfly would have appreciated that you tried to help," reads one comment on the posting.
