Being one of the most mysterious artists of Hollywood, Abel Tesfaye, famoulsy known by his stage name The Weeknd, is making a lot of news through his music. Here are the unknown facts about The Weeknd one must know!
He started off by posting a video on Youtube in 2010, and today he's already worked with artists like Drake & Ariana. So what is it about him that makes him so unique?
Sia, the lady with the voice of an angel, loves to keep her face covered most of the times. Just the way she doesn't give away much of her appearance to the media.
Similarly, The Weeknd loves to maintain a certain mystery about himself,too. He declined giving interviews till 2015! He once took to his social network account to say,
'Because I grew up idolizing story tellers who tell stories using symbolism, so it was in my nature to do the same,' He said, he doesn't like to 'spoon feed' his audience.
Well. He definitely has managed to communicate enough with his fans through his music alone. His first interview with Rolling Stone magazine was in Oct, 2015.
One of the reasons behind his ultra low profile media life is his insecurities about his appearance. He also avoids taking pictures with fans besides avoiding interviews.
'In the beginning, I was very insecure. I hated how I looked in pictures," he Like, crop me out of this picture right now. I was very camera shy ...The whole 'enigmatic artist' thing, I just ran with it.'
'No one could find pictures of me. It reminded me of some villain s---. But you can't escape the Internet.' He said.
It isn't only his music life that's so low profile, but his love life, too. He's currently dating Gigi Hadid's younger sister and model Gigi Hadid.
They are seldom spotted together or showing off PDA. But, here are a few pictures of the couple holding hands and sharing kisses.
