Whew! Did you catch The Weeknd's performance tonight?! Was it worth the 7 million dollars of his own money that he invested? Was it worth the Grammy nomination snub that he received? He thinks it was and so do a lot of fans!
One question that a LOT of people had though, Why the face bandages?
“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,” he says. And as far as what he has to say about not receiving those Grammy nominations, simply put, he says “I personally don’t care anymore,” The Weeknd told Billboard. “I have three Grammys, which mean nothing to me now, obviously. It’s not like, ‘Oh, I want the Grammy!’ It’s just that this happened, and I’m down to get in front of the fire, as long as it never happens again.” According to an unnamed source, "There was an ultimatum given, resulting in a struggle over him also playing the Super Bowl, that went on for some time." Which explains the not so subtle tweet from The Weeknd just a few short months back.
It's safe to say it was worth all of the fuss because he SHUT IT DOWN! He even managed to get a little shoutout from The Grammys.
