The September issue of fashion magazines is always the biggest of the year. Therefore, landing the cover of that specific month is looked upon as an huge accomplishment. Blake Lively is on Glamour, Miley Cyrus covers Cosmopolitan, and Selena Gomez (The Weeknd’s girlfriend) is In Style‘s pick.
Harper’s Bazaar went against the grain and put a male celebrity on the cover of the September issue.
The Weeknd along with supermodels Adriana Lima and Irina Shayk grace the cover and pages of this month’s Harper’s Bazaar.
In the article the Canadian singer addresses maintaining a distance from his stage persona, The Weeknd, from his real self, Abel Tesfaye saying “I’m not in a rush to let people know everything about me,” he says. “Mystery is always great.”
And when asked if he’ll ever decide to pull back the curtain, he’s still uncertain. “Kind of like pulling a Ziggy Stardust. Maybe I’ll retire from being the Weeknd. Or maybe I’ll just give him a break.”
