The 'Without Me' singer channels her inner David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix as she graces the front page of the latest edition of The Advocate.

AceShowbiz - Halsey has channelled David Bowie, Mick Jagger, and Bob Dylan in a photoshoot, while taking aim at "toxic masculinity" in the accompanying interview.

The 25-year-old singer dons a variety of guises for the February/March edition of The Advocate, portraying some of the music industry's biggest icons, including Jimi Hendrix.

Explaining her reasons for wanting to take part in the eye-catching shoot, Halsey told the publication, "I don't really see females dressing in real drag very often in editorial print."

"This is something I want to do. As a performer, I have looked up to or looked into those men - looking for a form of identity building for so long. It never really occurred to me that I shouldn't."

Halsey's take on Bowie and Jagger are relatively accurate, while her portrayals of Hendrix and Dylan are less so. And further reflecting on the musicians, the "Without Me" star said of The Rolling Stones star, "To this day, it blows my mind how unabashedly feminine (Jagger) was and still is."

"If you look at Jagger and Bowie and Prince and even Elvis, it's just crazy to me how backward we've gone. The issue of toxic masculinity affects everyone. The idea that men can't express themselves in a feminine way, it's hurting everyone."
