Adriana Lima and Irina Shayk surround The Weeknd on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s September 2017 issue.
Along with the three cover stars, Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Lambert, Courtney Love, Karlie Kloss, Natasha Poly, and Joan Smalls are also featured in the Icons by Carine Roitfeld portfolio.
On the disparity between The Weeknd’s lyrical and real-life personas: “I’m not in a rush to let people know everything about me. Mystery is always great.”
On preserving his mystique as an A-lister:“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.”
On if he’ll ever tinker with his public persona for his next album: “Kind of like pulling a Ziggy Stardust. Maybe I’ll retire from being the Weeknd. Or maybe I’ll just give him a break.”
