The Weekend: “Taylor Swift Pet My Hair And It Was Uncomfortable”
In an interview with Rolling Stone this week, singer The Weeknd recounts meeting Taylor Swift earlier this year and how comfortable she felt petting his hair. Weirdo!
The “I Can’t Feel My Face” singer said that he was at a Grammy party, celebrating Sam Smith, and Taylor came up to him drunk like a skunk trying to pet his locks.
Her man-fingers probably started to tingle after a few shots, this is what the singer says happened in his cover-story interview:
Everybody was having a great time, all these cool things were happening, and I was shaking, like — ‘F**k, I really want a drink.'”
That’s when he met Taylor Swift. “She actually schooled me on my own s#!t,” Tesfaye says. “She was like, ‘I’ve been listening to ‘The Morning’ [from House of Balloons] for years — it’s one of my favorite songs ever!’ I mean, she might have just Googled it. But she seemed genuine.”
Tesfaye says Swift went on for about 15 minutes. “But the whole time she was talking,” he says, “she was kind of, like, petting my hair? I think she was just drawn to it — she must have been a little gone off a few drinks. And of course I’m not going to be like, ‘Hey, can you stop?’ I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that’s when I was like, ‘I definitely need a drink.'”
Sounds like something weird she would do, not even a surprise.
