The Weeknd has finally disclosed the real importance behind his fully bandaged face. He is expected to perform this Sunday as Super Bowl LV‘s Halftime show, and many of his fans are doubtful of whether or not his fully-bandaged face will make an appearance.
The XO Records head’s visual performance of his hit-album After Hours began with the single “Blinding Lights.” The artist is dressed in a vibrant red jacket with a broken nose after a bad night. The Weeknd’s recent performances in his videos, on TV, and award shows present a more battered version of himself, with each appearance continuing the same character.
Since his album’s arrival last November, he has transpired into and out of character, blurring the lines between the real artist and the fictional persona. As for whether or not The Weeknd is still in his alter ego persona, he leaves fans wondering with the response: “I don’t know. I’d have to ask him.”
