Ugh. The Weeknd singing about Selena Gomez at Coachella is bound to make you tear up. Grab the tissues — this one's a tearjerker. The 28 year-old — whose real name is Abel Tesfaye — kicked off Coachella last night by getting super emotional. The singer crooned his song "Call Out My Name" from his most recent album, a diddy that's widely-speculated to be about his ex love, Selena.
"I said I didn't feel nothing, baby, but I lied," he sang. "I almost cut a piece of myself for your life / Guess I was just another pit stop / 'Til you made up your mind / You just wasted my time."
Shortly after breaking things off with The Weeknd, Selena, 25, picked up her on-again, off-again romance with her ex Justin Bieber. Hence the lyric, "Guess I was just another pit stop / 'Til you made up your mind."
Another lyric that has fans thinking "Call Out My Name" is about Sel is the bit about "cutting a piece" of himself for her life. No doubt this is a reference to Selena's kidney transplant last year. Her close friend Francia Rasia ended up donating a kidney to Selena, who the star credits as "saving her life." But in "Call Out My Name," The Weeknd appears to have grappled with the decision to also undergo the kidney transplant in order to save his then-girlfriend, who was diagnosed with lupus several years ago.
The Weeknd had a visibly difficult time making it through the song. He even cut off some of the lyrics because he was too emotional to keep going, which broke his fans' hearts. "My poor heart, OMG," one fan commented. "He really did love her," another wrote. BRB, got this vid on repeat and we're crying our eyes out.
