The Weeknd is definitely using his huge international popularity as a platform to get a message out to the masses.

In the early days of February, the 30-year-old singer finally revealed the reason why he has been promoting his latest album, "After Hours" in a red suit and his face bandaged as if he had undergone massive cosmetic surgery on his face.

In fact in his last music video "Save Your Tears" the singer amazed the fans with a major transformation on his face appearing as a totally different person.

With this, The Weeknd tried to show the brutality of radical aesthetic changes for the sole reason of pleasing others and how this directly impacts our image.

Seeing a person who didn't really need any change in his image and seeing how this made him look like a totally different person has perhaps made it seem, especially to young people, how unnecessary it is to try to look perfect at all times.

The artist has also been betting in 2020 and 2021 to offer shows with great audiovisual impact.

Inspired by the pandemic's restrictions on concerts with an audience, The Weeknd seeks to bring a cinematic experience to viewers.

It is for this reason that the 30-year-old singer has decided to put $7 million from his own pocket for the staging of his Super Bowl halftime show to take place on February 7th from Tampa, Florida.

Being a semi-virtual event,  since the stadium will only hold a third of its audience capacity, he has decided that he will use the 13-minute concert to give his best to his fans.

The big question is what song will The Weeknd play? Maybe it's his new single "Save Your Tears" or maybe a new song.

Let's hope he shows up without his facial prosthetics and a new outfit. LOL
