Davit Giorgadze / CR Men
The weekend reopens on his drug use in a new revealing interview.
The thirty-year-old singer referred to the topic in his lyrics and told Rolling Stone in 2015, “I never needed detoxification or anything. But I was addicted to the sense of” F – k, I don’t want to spend this day without getting high “, adding” Like, from ’08 to 2010 – those are my foggy years . “
“I have an occasional relationship with it,” The Weeknd said when asked if he still does drugs, in an interview published on CR MENThe number 10, which arrives on newsstands on March 12.
“It doesn’t consume my life but occasionally it helps me to open my mind, especially when I create, but when I perform I am completely sober and I try not to even drink,” he continued. “I learned to balance thanks to the tour”.
In the interview, The Weeknd also mentioned being alone.
“I spend most of my days alone now,” he said. “I don’t like leaving my home too much. It’s a gift and a curse, but it helps me pay undivided attention to my job. I like being a workaholic, I think, or I’m just addicted to it. Even when I’m not working , I always work somehow. It distracts from loneliness, I guess. “
Weeknd has already talked about his drug use.
In 2016, he said The Guardian in the UK, “Drugs were a crutch for me. There were songs on my first record that were seven minutes long, rambling – whatever thoughts I had when I was under the influence at the time. I can’t see myself doing that now. “
He continued, “I will be completely honest with you. The last two albums, I go back to that. Also on this new album. You have writer’s block. And sometimes you’re like, I can’t make him sober.”
