The Weeknd Talks Black Lives Matter

The Weeknd thinks enough is enough. After canceling a Jimmy Kimmel performance because Donald Trump was set to appear on the same episode, the Weeknd reveals he broke a promise to himself. “I wish I could make music about politics. I feel like it’s such an art and a talent that I admire tremendously, but when I step into the studio I step out of the real world, and it’s therapeutic. It’s an escape, but recently it’s been very hard to ignore, and it’s also been very distracting. Maybe you’ll hear it in my voice, but it is not my forté.”
