Is The Weeknd dropping his entire net worth on the Super Bowl?
We can’t feel our face after learning The Weeknd’s impressive net worth, which explains how he paid for all the bizarre plastic surgery to look like the male “cat lady” even though it’s fake.
The Weeknd, a thirty-year-old contemporary musician who mixes his original vocal style with eccentric performances, is set to take the stage a week from this coming Sunday at Super Bowl LV, a game that will see the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Landing a gig like that has to improve The Weeknd’s net worth, right?
We’re excited to see just what exactly the Weeknd brings to the Super Bowl stage, following in some heavy footsteps such as Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, and plenty of others over the years. Let’s take a closer look at the main headliner for the Super Bowl LV halftime show, The Weeknd, as well as his jaw-dropping net worth.
The Weeknd is upon us
The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, was born in Toronto, Ontario, on February 16, 1990. This future musician struggled early on in life with drug addiction just around the age of eleven, some drugs in which he even stole, possibly due to a rough upbringing once his parents split.
The Weeknd dropped out of high school in 2007 and chose to leave his home. He actually credits his stage name to his status as a high school dropout, although was ultimately forced to rearrange the spelling of his new nickname in order to avoid trademark issues with another band in Canada, called The Weekend.
The Weeknd is here
After meeting music producer Jeremy Rose in 2010, the two collaborated on an R&B project that featured a couple of songs that were uploaded online, garnering much attention from music fans as well as rap icon Drake.
The Weeknd’s debut mixtape, titled House of Balloons, was self-released on March 21st, 2011, which eventually kicked off his first tour in the U.S. that even included a memorable performance at Coachella in 2012.
The Weeknd would go on to collaborate with many hit artists, including Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys, Drake, as well as others. The Weeknd even opened for Justin Timberlake during part of his 20/20 Experience world tour.
The Weeknd under the blinding lights
The Weeknd, responsible for hit tracks such as “Starboy”, “The Hills”, “Can’t Feel My Face”, and “Blinding Lights” will finally have his time to shine under the blinding lights of Super Bowl LV, a performance in which the artist claims he spent millions of his own money on. Hopefully, his net worth didn’t take a hit in the process.
In an interview with Billboard, the singer expressed his desire to up the ante from past performances, investing his own money into this cherished spectacle to make it all the more powerful. Typically the Super Bowl covers all production costs of the show, giving us fans a clear indication that we’re in for a special treat given The Weeknd’s personal touch & investment.
“We’ve been really focusing on dialing in on the fans at home and making performances a cinematic experience, and we want to do that with the Super Bowl”, The Weeknd told Billboard.
The Weeknd’s net worth
Celebrity Net Worth estimated that The Weeknd has a net worth of $100 million, proving that it’s important to have a signature look, even if it is a bloody nose or a swollen face.
