Showing up bruised at the VMAs and bandaged at the AMAs is part of his plan to send a message across. This look is the representation of the persona he displays in the 'After Hours' short film.

Many are predicting that with these injured looks, he is trying to highlight the drunk undertone so to raise awareness on the issue of drunk driving. This is what his single 'Blinding Light' is about according to his interview with Esquire. The Weeknd says that people become unstoppable when they are lonely. It does not matter to them that they are drunk, so they drive till the streetlights blind them.

According to sources, The Weeknd was seen filming in this bandaged look in early November. This look can also be a hint that a new music video is coming soon. Are you excited? Comment below and let us know.
