The Weeknd Opens Up About the Darkest Time in His Life and His Album After Hours in Rare Interview

Share this post

We’re not used to seeing The Weeknd give interviews, but he seems to have had a change of heart coming into 2020. After gracing the cover of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Men March issue, the 30-year-old R&B crooner recently sat down for another interview with Variety. Yep, that’s two interviews in nearly five years! That’s a pretty big deal for The Weeknd. In the April issue, he talked about everything from ringing in his birthday with Jim Carrey to his After Hours album, which is filled to the brim with references to his ex Bella Hadid. The Weeknd was originally set to hit the road later this year for his After Hours tour. Things were supposed to kick off on June 11 with stops all across the US, Canada, the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and France, but the dates are now being moved around due to the coronavirus pandemic. “The tour is still happening – we’re not canceling. We just have to rearrange the dates, which is unfortunate but certainly understandable,” The Weeknd said. While we wait for the new dates to be announced, read ahead for everything we learned about The Weeknd, straight from the artist himself. POPSUGAR
