This year’s Coachella began with a whole lot of drama, by way of Kanye West pulling out at the last minute, possibly due to the drama in his personal life. He was quickly replaced by The Weeknd, who might have brought some of his own personal life drama to his Coachella set. No, he didn’t sing out an itemized list of all the ways Coachella organizers like to mess with performers’ bank accounts. The Weeknd played a real-sounding voicemail at the end of one of his songs, and a whole lot of people believe it was a very real voicemail from his ex-girlfriend, Bella Hadid.
The Weeknd Reportedly Threatened To Pull Out Of Coachella If He Didn’t Get Paid The Same Amount That Kanye West Was Going To Get
Yesterday we learned that the people who put on Coachella had found someone who was willing to pop in at the last minute to take over Kanye West’s vacant headlining slot. It was announced that The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia will share the spot. But according to Page Six, the deal was not completely done when Coachella announced their new headliners and The Weeknd threatened to bounce over money.
After Kanye West dropped out as headliner of this year’s Coachella music festival, many names were rumored to be taking his spot from Silk Sonic to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Justin Bieber to Tyler, The Creator to The Weeknd. But now it’s confirmed that The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia will take Kanye’s place.
This might be The Weeknd’s most shocking aesthetic choice yet. He went…OLD. By choice! Every showbusiness plastic surgeon just dry heaved until their throat collapsed. The Weeknd loves to have a signature look that carries him through the release of each of his albums. For After Hours, we saw The Weeknd covered in blood and bandages, which was followed by a face full of Dr. Miami-approved pretend plastic surgery prosthetics. On Friday, The Weeknd releases his latest album, Dawn FM, and according to a tweet posted by The Weeknd earlier today, that picture above is the album cover.
Aaliyah is back! But not in hologram form….again. She’s back thanks to her label releasing music post-humously for profit. Today, they released a song called Poison, which The Weeknd yodels on. It is aptly titled since the mix of it is certainly poisonous to my ears. Paris Hilton music has clearer vocals than this!
Just because we’re still in the middle of a pandemic and Heidi Klum’s annual Halloween party didn’t happen for the second year in a row, doesn’t mean that the other celebrities won’t get together and tear shit up for attention. Much like a drag queen, if a celebrity isn’t working Halloween they are losing money! Harry Styles’ tour took him to Madison Square Garden in NYC on Halloween, and he decided to get festive by dressing up as a hobo hipster who just so happened to find a Dorothy Gale costume in the dumpster.
