The Weeknd is known for his stage name, but he might be returning to his real name Abel Tesfaye in the future!
The 27-year-old singer likes to use the stage name to help keep a mystery about him.
“I’m not in a rush to let people know everything about me. Mystery is always great,” he told Harper’s Bazaar. “Luckily, the only thing the world demands of me is music. I don’t have to give them anything else for the rest of my life.”
The Weeknd is considering retiring his stage name though.
“Kind of like pulling a Ziggy Stardust. Maybe I’ll retire from being The Weeknd,” he said, adding, “maybe I’ll just give him a break.”
