The Weeknd Covers Rollingstone

The Weeknd is on the latest cover of Rollingstone magazine. The singer, whose new albumThe Beauty Behind The Madness has already sold more than half a million copies, talks about being on drugs, songs about sex, dating Bella Hadid, creating big hits, Drake not liking his music in the beginning and much more. Below are a couple of excerpts as well as behind the scenes video from his Saturday Night Live performance.

On being on drugs:
“I never needed detox or anything. But I was addicted in the sense of ‘F–k, I don’t want to spend this day without getting high.’
On dating girlfriend Bella Hadid:
“I actually asked her to be on the artwork for Beauty Behind the Madness. My motive was literally to work with her.” But when she declined, “I was like, ‘All right, cool — we can meet up face-to-face.’” Tesfaye says he loves how hardworking she is, and how close she is with her family. “It just kind of fell into my lap,” he says. “If this had happened two years ago — well,” he catches himself, “she couldn’t.” (Two years ago, Hadid would have been 16.) “But if I’d met someone two years ago, I probably would’ve fucked it up. But I’m more — how do I say it? — clear-thinking now.”
