    This doesn’t really make any sense is this actually made by The Weeknd? First it say’s that he watches the lady’s demise but then she’s present throughout the rest of the story? None of this really makes sense, why would he rape and murder other women if a women cheated on him is he a crack head? Like wtf is this shit if this is actually what he intended hes clearly done waaaay to much ex and dmt. Nice try for the interpretations but I reeeeeeeeeeally don’t think the meaning is that blatant and I think there’s so much personal symbolism in this that only the person who came up with it would know. Thanks though

    Thanks for your honest reaction Jacob…honestly I tried my best at interpreting the video because it was so dynamic and unique. I love The Weeknd and I think he was expressing him self through visual elements that probably can’t be interpreted by anyone but him…but figured I’d give it a shot! :-)
