The Weeknd explains why he ditched his signature dreadlocks

scandal 04/11/2016

Last month when The Weeknd decided to shave off his luscious locks we were left questioning our entire existence. 

Why? Just why? Our dreams of one day laying in a smoky back room of a dingy club just stroking each individual braid of his hair has now been shattered (okay we promise this sounds less creepy in our head)

Although he hasn't magically grown it all back, he has made the pain a tad more bearable by explaining why he did it in the first place:

I could only sleep on one side of my face. Now, the sleep is amazing. The shower is amazing, because I don’t have to spend two hours cleaning it. I didn’t know how much I wanted it until I did it.

Yeah okay m8. This is actually a pretty good reason. We get it, you're forgiven. *But we're still totally down for that dark club hair stroking sesh if you're keen?*
