Halsey recently opened up about having a miscarriage while dating her ex-boyfriend, G-Eazy, and called the experience "demoralizing."

"It's the most inadequate I've ever felt," she told The Guardian in a new interview, published Friday.

"Here I am achieving this out-of-control life, and I can't do the one thing I'm biologically put on this earth to do," she continued. "Then I have to go onstage and be this sex symbol of femininity and empowerment? It is demoralizing."

Halsey and G-Eazy dated for over a year before they split in July 2018. Although they briefly got back together, they officially broke up in October of that year. She has since called their relationship "abusive."

In her newest single, the feisty breakup bop "You Should Be Sad," Halsey sings about nearly becoming a parent with an unfeeling ex: "I'm so glad I never ever had a baby with you / 'Cause you can't love nothing unless there's something in it for you."

Halsey first opened up about miscarrying in a 2016 interview with Rolling Stone. Last year, she revealed in a since-deleted tweet that she's had three miscarriages in her life.

The 25-year-old singer has endometriosis, an incurable reproductive disorder that can make it difficult — or, in severe cases, impossible — to get pregnant. She has called the disease "excruciatingly painful" and "discouraging."

Despite her past struggles, however, Halsey told The Guardian that motherhood is "looking like something that's gonna happen for me. That's a miracle."

In her song "More," the 14th track on her new album "Manic," Halsey sings about her desire to have a child.

"Wooden floors and little feet / A flower bud in concrete / Feelin' so incomplete / Wonder will we ever meet?" she sings. "And when you decide it's your time to arrive / I've loved you for all of my life."

"I've been really open about struggling with reproductive health," she told Apple Music's Zane Lowe in January. "For a long time, I didn't think that that was something — that having a family was something that I was going to be able to do in an effortless manner. [Having a family is] very important to me."

She said, while she was working on "Manic," her OB-GYN informed her that her treatments and steps towards a healthier lifestyle have made it possible for her to have a healthy pregnancy.

"It was a moment where I felt like I had leveled up in life. It was this like, ascension into a different kind of womanhood," she said. "I wrote the lyrics to 'More' in like, four minutes or less. It just spilled out of me."
