The Weeknd’s face was covered in bandages at the 2020 American Music Awards in November. Later The Weeknd revealed they were a setup for his latest creepy aesthetic when the Canadian crooner dropped his Save Your Tears music video on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old Starboy hitmaker appeared in the disturbing video with prosthetics designed to make him look like his face had undergone radical plastic surgery, include fillers around his cheeks and lips.
The four-minute song video begins with the singer -whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye- singing onstage for a masked crowd. A spotlight hits the singer and reveals what appears to be a heavily-botoxed face, complete with surgical scarring around the ears.
