The Weeknd Performs At AMAs With Face Covered In Bandages

The Weeknd Performs At AMAs With Face Covered In Bandages

The Weeknd performed and accepted an award at the 2020 AMAs with his face covered in bandages.

He made no reference to the bizarre looking face covering, even when accepting his award.

He won Favourite Album - Soul/R&B for his fourth studio album After Hours, which was released in March 2020, as well as Favourite Male Artist - Soul/R&B and Favourite Song - Soul/R&B.

It turns out his bandages were no accident.

It's actually part of the theme for his current music, with his song 'Blinding Lights' talking about drink-driving - The Weeknd was keen not to glamourise the idea.

He spoke to Esquire about the song recently, saying: "'Blinding Lights' [is about] how you want to see someone at night, and you're intoxicated, and you're driving to this person and you're just blinded by streetlights.

"But nothing could stop you from trying to go see that person, because you're so lonely."

He added: "I don't want to ever promote drunk driving, but that's what the dark undertone is."

He also sported a similar bruised look at the MTV VMAs this year.

It seems as though he was made up in order to mirror the (now award-winning) video for his song 'Blinding Lights' in which he appears to have been knocked around just like his appearance at the awards ceremony.

The 30-year-old artist won VMAs for Best R&B Video as well as Video of the Year for 'Blinding Lights' and during his acceptance speeches he took the opportunity to speak out against racial injustice and police brutality.

He accepted the awards briefly, dedicating the bulk of his platform to two simple calls for action: "Justice for Jacob Blake. Justice for Breonna Taylor."

During one of his speeches, he simply said: "It's really hard for me to celebrate right now and enjoy this moment. I'm just going to say: Justice for Jacob Blake and justice for Breonna Taylor."
