The Weeknd Cut His Hair And It's Making Bigger News Than His New Album

The Weeknd came a little early, y'all.

On Wednesday morning, the 26-year-old singer officially announced the title and color of his new album, Starboy.

For the last few months, The Weeknd has been teasing fans on social media with mysterious messages to get them hype for the release.

LIKE, WTF DOES THIS MEAN?! Give us more than this, man!

HMMM. Do you notice anything different about the artwork? What about the Weeknd's hair?


YEAHHHHHHH, YO. THE DUDE GOT A HAIRCUT. His iconic look is gone. FOREVER.

Just kidding, it's not forever. His hair will grow back soon, but like, this is huge!


I'm not the only one who's losing it. Fans are going insane in the comments on Insta.

On top of the album drop, the singer might have some big plans up his sleeve.

Fans noticed he deleted all his Instagram photos before adding the one of his new album. Weird, right? What's the deal?


When you go to his profile, you'll see he has 6.6 million people who are following him for just one post. Where'd everything else go?!

It seems to be a pattern for celebrities to wipe their social media profiles clean. Rob Kardashian recently deleted all of his pictures, even the ones of Blac Chyna.

If all of my pictures on Instagram deleted, I would cry. THOSE ARE MEMORIES, OK? SPECIAL FILTERED MOMENTS.

Hopefully The Weeknd shares some pictures of his new look so we can check it out soon.

Bella Hadid, what are your thoughts? 😉
