The Weeknd Cut His Hair & We Have A Lot Of Feelings

Now, given all the fake-outs in the world of Hollywood lately, we wouldn't be surprised if this were just some clever hair-trickery. But if it is real, it does beg the question: Like the fabled tree in the forest, if The Weeknd cuts off his locs, is he still The Weeknd? Guess we'll have to wait for Starboy to drop to find out.
