The Weeknd is blinded by the light – and bruised in the face.
At the 2020 VMAs, the singer – who won the VMA for Best R&B and Video of the Year for “Blinding Lights” – appeared to have a broken nose and black eyes and was bleeding during his performance atop Hudson Yards At New York.

But don’t call 9-1-1 yet: it was just makeup.
The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, adopted a similar torn aesthetic in the short film “After Hours”, which bears the same name as her most recent album, and in the music video for “Blinding Lights”.
The 30-year-old donned this gory look, blood and red jacket included, when he performed on SNL in March. He was also seen on the streets of New York last week like this, probably when he pre-recorded parts of his performance.

The Weeknd’s girlfriend, Bella Hadid, 23, was also part of the VMAs again, when she presented the special “Tricon” award to Lady Gaga, 34.
His album “After Hours” was nominated for six awards.
