The Weeknd Has Changed His Hairstyle And The Internet Can’t Handle It

Late yesterday evening, The Weeknd (aka AbΔ™l Tesfaye) released the first taster of his new album β€˜Starboy’ by releasing its title track – a collaboration with Daft Punk. Accompanying that release was the reveal of his very strong album cover, which you can see below.

Notice anything different about the R&B star? Well, the internet certainly did…

Yep. He’s had a haircut.

Frankly, people are having a hard time accepting the new look.

Some suggested that 2016 – the year where no-one is allowed to be happy – was to blame.

But others were well on board with the new style.

Tesfaye previously said that any major hair changes would be for purely functional reasons. β€œI’ll probably cut it if it starts interfering with my sight. I can kind of see it right now. But if I cut it, I’d look like everyone else. And that’s just so boring to me.” Clearly he’s had a change of heart. Deal with it, people of the internet!
