The Weeknd to consider name change | Recreation

The Weeknd is considering changing his name.

The “Blinding Lights” actor is considering dumping his platform but instead of using his real moniker, Abel Tesfaye, he is considering dumping his full name to be known alone, following the lead of Kanye West, who has officially changed his name. only last October.

He tweeted: “I feel like I should change my platform name to ABEL now lol. (Sic)”

Then he added another post: “maybe drag YE and just officially change my name to ABEL. There is no last name. Like Madonna or Cher or Prince. I don’t know if it seems like a lot. . (sic) “

And talking about the late Prince – who misrepresented his name to an unknown symbol in the early 1990’s, so he was often referred to as The Artist Formerly known as Prince – seemed to give The Weeknd another thought.

He suggested: “ABEL is officially known as The Weeknd? (Sic)”

Last year, the 32-year-old singer admitted that none of his fans used the stage name but had not yet “finished” using The Weeknd for his current work.

Asked if he would release the music like Abel, he said: “I feel like I’m already doing it. My fans don’t call me The Weeknd. They just call me Abel.

“It’s a trick, but I think the name The Weeknd holds such a legacy right now. The story of that name has never been made.”

The actor ‘Take My Breath’ has admitted that he does not like his stage name as much as he did.

He said: “I still love it, but I think it’s easy now to take off that coat. I wish I had that as an option to run away from Abel a little. I really liked it at the time. However, love my name now: Abel.

The Weeknd thinks they are two different people.

He said: “The lines were dark at first. And as my career grew – as I grew up as a man – it became very clear that Abel was the person I was going home with one night. and so on. And The Weeknd is someone I go to work with like …

“I don’t know. Abel could be bad sometimes, man. But I think The Weeknd is Hyde. Abel is Dr. Jekyll.”
