If you were wondering why (or even how) The Weeknd could cut off his wild trademark Jean-Michel Basquiat-inspired dreadlocks, that's exactly the point.
Speaking with the Wall Street Journal about his new album Starboy and new look to go with it, the artist née Abel Tesfaye said the style change was a "long time coming."
"It didn't feel right anymore, because it ended up becoming a trademark," he said in a rare interview. "I told everybody I was getting rid of it, and everybody -- literally, unanimously -- they were like, 'No, don't do it! That's your whole thing, that's you.' And the way they said that, I was like, 'Oh, I'm definitely cutting it now.'"
