The Weeknd reveals the truth behind writing those breakup songs following the split with Selena Gomez
Be it a Hollywood celebrity or a common person, break ups is difficult to handle. The Weeknd isn’t the type of person to share extensive details about his private life, girlfriends, past or present; but in a very recent interview with Esquire did spill the beans about the break up songs which he wrote after splitting up with Selena Gomez.
The 2018 EP My Dear Melancholy is widely believed to a break up album, which he wrote after his break up with Selena Gomez; all because of the ensured lyrical call outs for Selena. The song has many references to Selena Gomez as well as to Bella Hadid.
The Weeknd revealed that creating these songs were cathartic and also revealed the reason for it to be so short. He said that; “The reason why it was so short is like, I think I just had nothing else to say on this…. Whatever…”.
He continued and said that; “It was like this Cathartic piece of art. And yeah, it was short, because that’s all I had to say on that situation.”
The Weeknd admits that writing these songs did make him feel better by saying that; “Yeah, of course. I mean, that would have sucked if I didn’t”.
Although when the question of as to whom those songs were dedicated to was directly asked by the Esquire reporters; He simply and in almost apologetically declined to answer the question by just saying two words “No Comments”.
