While you were busy pranking your friends and celebrating Easter, The Weeknd dropped a brand new EP titled My Dear Melancholy. It didn't take long for fans to realize that the Canadian rapper was dissing his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez in a lot of his new lyrics.
One lyric, in particular, had fans in a frenzy. In the song, "Call Out My Name", he basically implies that he was going to donate his own kidney to Selena when she had to have a kidney transplant surgery last year. The lyrics read," I said I didn't feel nothing baby but I lied/I almost cut a piece of myself for your life."
Well, fans on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram went crazy after they heard these lyrics assuming that the Weeknd offered to give up his own internal organ for his then-girlfriend, Selena.
Well, TV talkshow host Wendy Williams had a different take on the matter. While fans were distraught and expressing their love for The Weeknd, Wendy called BS on the whole thing.
During her segment, Hot Topics, she said "I don't believe that in a 10-month relationship, The Weeknd was all goo-goo-ga-ga over Selena Gomez, and I don't believe for a minute he was about to give her his kidney."
She also said that she suspects that he used her health as a way to sell his music. "You, [The Weeknd] pull on the heartstrings of lonely girls [with your music] who actually believe that a man would fall in love and give up a kidney and all that stuff. That's good album sales for The Weeknd, it makes him seem like this guy you just want to throw your panties at him."
She continued on further explaining that The Weeknd used his relationship with Selena to further his career and that's all that it was. "The Weeknd, you used this relationship for exactly what it was because a lot of people didn’t know exactly who you were before you got with her… You got the best end of this deal particularly The Weeknd."
