Why Is The Weeknd Wearing Bandages on His Face? Did He Get Plastic Surgery? He Explains!

The Weeknd has been known for his heavily bandaged face during performances in the past few months, and now, he’s explaining the significance of the bandages.

For those who haven’t followed The Weeknd’s bandages, here’s a recap:

The Weeknd seemed to be playing a character on a journey in his album, After Hours. In his latest music video for “Save Your Tears,” he finally took off his fake bandages just a few weeks ago and revealed this heavily bandaged persona had undergone plastic surgery.

He finally explained why his album, After Hours, had featured so much of this bandaged person in a new interview.

The Weeknd shared with Variety, “The significance of the entire head bandages is reflecting on the absurd culture of Hollywood celebrity and people manipulating themselves for superficial reasons to please and be validated.”

When asked why he had been promoting his biggest album to date with a persona in heavy bandages, he responded, “I suppose you could take that being attractive isn’t important to me but a compelling narrative is.”
