The Weeknd Talks About Taylor Swift Petting His Hair
People are very picky about their hair.
Personally I have never been one of those people who spend hours in front of the mirror perfecting my hairdo, but to each their own. For those who do, I can't blame them for shying away from people who want to touch their "masterpiece."
This week famed singer The Weeknd linked with Rolling Stone to share his hair nightmare experience with Taylor Swift.
During the sit-down with Rolling Stone, The Weeknd recalled a Grammy afterparty held for the Sam Smith in Bel-Air. During the party, Taylor Swift approached and told him that one of his songs had become one of her favorites. During their discussion, things turned awkward for The Toronto rep.
“[Swift] actually schooled me on my own shit,” the singer says. “She was like, ‘I’ve been listening to ‘The Morning’ [from House of Balloons] for years—it’s one of my favorite songs ever!’ I mean, she might have just Googled it. But she seemed genuine.” The conversation went on for about 15 minutes–with a bizarre twist. “The whole time she was talking, she was kind of, like, petting my hair?” the Weeknd recalls. “I think she was just drawn to it—she must have been a little gone off a few drinks. And of course I’m not going to be like, ‘Hey, can you stop?’ I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that’s when I was like, ‘I definitely need a drink.'”
I mean, can we even be mad at Taylor Swift for this one? The Weeknd has one of the most unique hairstyles in music right now.
