The Weekend Covers Complex Magazine

Posted by & filed under Photo Gallery, SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

The Weekend appears on the cover of Complex Magazine. The Canadian singer, who tends to avoid interviews and photo shoots, gives fans the rare opportunity to learn more about him.

When addressing why he agreed to do an interview now, The Weekend said it was simply a skill he wanted to learn.

“Honestly, I want to do interviews now because it’s one thing that I haven’t mastered,” he said. “Even Prince did interviews. Michael did interviews. And I can tell in the interviews they’re uncomfortable. Why are they doing this? Because they feel like they have to do it to be a complete artist. I felt like this was my time. And maybe I wouldn’t have done it if I thought you were an asshole. I probably would have been like, “**** this guy.”

The Weekend added that a great deal of his apprehension towards interviews and photo shoots is due to his own insecurities.

“In the beginning, I was very insecure. I hated how I looked in pictures. I just ****ing hated this ****, like, crop me out of this picture right now. I was very camera shy,” he said. “People like hot girls, so I put my music to hot girls and it just became a trend. The whole “enigmatic artist” thing, I just ran with it. No one could find pictures of me. It reminded me of some villain ****. But you can’t escape the Internet. There are super fans, and I was really testing their patience. At the end of the day you can’t deny the music. That was my whole thing: I’m going to let the music speak for itself. I’ll show them that this is what I do.”
