The Weeknd’s New Music Video
The Weeknd just dropped the music video for his song “Save Your Tears.” His face looks unusual as he appears to be wearing face prosthetics in the video. Sources have confirmed that his look is a result of makeup, not surgery. Entertainment Tonight writes the look is “obviously fake.”) The Weeknd’s “new face” grabbed social media attention. True fans understand that the transformation of his appearance throughout his videos makes sense.
“I think [he] is showing us how constantly pressured he feels to be ‘perfect’ by the industry, Grammys, etc.,” one fan wrote on Twitter, according to ET. “Now he got that botched up face, and I think at some point he will have an ‘alone again’ mv where he takes it off and learns to love himself for who he is.”
The Weeknd Feels Unappreciated, Underrated
When After Hours didn’t receive any Grammy nominations, The Weeknd took to Twitter and wrote, “The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans, and the industry transparency.”
Rumors spread that The Weeknd’s plans to perform at the 2021 Super Bowl impacted his Grammy nominations. However, Harvey Mason Jr., the Recording Academy’s chair and interim president/CEO, shot that rumor down.
“We understand that The Weeknd is disappointed at not being nominated,” he said in a statement to Billboard. “I was surprised and can empathize with what he’s feeling. His music this year was excellent…. We were thrilled when we found out he would be performing at the upcoming Super Bowl, and we would have loved to have him also perform on the Grammy stage the weekend before…. To be clear, voting in all categories ended well before The Weeknd’s performance at the Super Bowl was announced, so in no way could it have affected the nomination process.”
