The Weeknd Reveals “Terrifying” Revelation: “I Forgot How to Sing” While Shooting New Show ‘The Idol’

Published: Thursday 25th May 2023 by Sam

The Weeknd is hitting the press trail for his hotly anticipated new HBO series, ‘The Idol.’

During his latest interview, the star – who is going by his birth name Abel Tesfaye for his non-musical endeavors – is revealing how seriously he took the role.

For, the 33-year-old says that he was so immersed in his character that he “forgot how to sing’ – resulting in problems for his main hustle.

Full story below…

Reflecting on the process of shooting the Sam Levinson-helmed series, The Weeknd told W Magazine:

“My theory is that I forgot how to sing because I was playing Tedros, a character who doesn’t know how to sing. It was terrifying. As The Weeknd, I’ve never skipped a concert.”

Watch The Weeknd flex his acting chops in ‘The Idol’ which premieres June 4 at  9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
