The Weeknd has transformed the pop, r&b and mainstream music scene within a very short span of roughly 2 years. It all started when he dropped out of school, left home in a van with a few friends and a mattress to pursue his dreams of making music. Well, it didn't happen overnight, but he certainly got his big break when he created his own genre of unique music. A twist between dark and raw subjects sang in his authentically tailored elegant voice. The rest has been history ever since. Here is the ultimate list of inspirational The Weeknd quotes that showcase another part of his wise mindset rarely shown in the media.
1.) The Weeknd Quote About Story Telling:
“I usually don't like to 'spoon feed' my audience, because I grew up idolizing story tellers who tell stories using symbolism, so it was in my nature to do the same."
2.) The Weeknd Quote About Inspirations:
“When you're traveling constantly, every day you become inspired, and it shows in my work, sonically, lyrically, visually. Conversations with women with different accents and stories told in those accents. I like to create characters based on different people I've met, and relationships. I like to tell stories loosely based on real-life events."
3.) The Weeknd Quote About His More Shy Side:
"I was very camera shy. People like hot girls, so I put my music to hot girls and it just became a trend. The whole 'enigmatic artist' thing, I just ran with it. No one could find pictures of me."
4.) The Weeknd Quote About Dreamers:
"For a dreamer, nights the only time of day."
5.) The Weeknd Quote About Sacrificing For Visions:
"I went from starin' at the same four walls for 21 years. To seein' the whole world in just twelve months."
6.) The Weeknd Quote About Your Mind:
“Be loyal to your own piece of mind."
7.) The Weeknd Quote About Change:
"Once you've changed who you are or who you've portrayed in your music, the fans, they'll catch it... Once I feel like the world knows me for anything else but my music, then I feel like I failed."
8.) The Weeknd Quote About Pushing The Limit:
"Push it to the limit, push it through the pain."
9.) The Weeknd Quote About Addictions:
“I'm a prisoner to my addiction I'm addicted to a life that's so empty and so cold I'm a prisoner to my decisions."
10.) The Weeknd Quote About The Ego:
“Too many people spend money they haven’t earned to buy things they don’t want to impress people they don’t like.”
11.) The Weeknd Lyrics From The Morning :
"Look at all that money. The money is the motive."
12.) The Weeknd Quote About Failing:
“I ain't scared of the fall. I have felt the ground before."
13.) The Weeknd Quote About The Joker:
“I love villains—they’re the best characters in movies, right? The Joker is my favorite villain of all time: You don’t know his past, you just know what his plans are.”
14.) The Weeknd Quote About Haters:
"My favorite critic is a hater, cause they don't give a shit about you and you need that, never ignore or hide from it..."
15.) The Weeknd Quote About Not Giving A Shit:
"I'm sorry I was distracted by my lack of giving a shit."
16.) The Weeknd Quote About Being Bold:
"It’s always been in me. I just had to be confident enough to let it out."
17.) The Weeknd Quote About Kanye West:
"Kanye needed to be on this album, because I feel like I’m going through what he’s been going through—reinventing himself and pushing the boundaries. And he looks at himself as pop. He says, “I’m a pop artist. You can’t put me in one category.”
18.) The Weeknd Quote About His Versatility:
"But back in 2012, when I was continuing to do that kind of music, people were fed up with it. They were like, “This is all he can do?” I owe it to myself to show the world how versatile I can be, because that’s not all I can do. Why can't I try something that challenges me as an artist?"
19.) The Weeknd Quote His Passion And Michael Jackson:
"I’ve been singing my whole life. I’d randomly sing in the hallways at high school, and all my friends would be like, ‘You should sing on ‘Canadian Idol’!” It definitely gassed me! So then I got a microphone and a shitty computer and started recording these corny songs with my friends, Boyz II Men covers and shit. I would listen to it and I thought I sounded OK, but I was still shy, you know? But playing arenas gave me that confidence, like, “Maybe I do have that star quality.” I still don't feel like I'm 100% there yet, but I always knew I wanted to be a star ever since I knew that I could sing. I can never be Michael Jackson or do what he did, but he is definitely a good inspiration: I want to give the kids that feeling."
20.) The Weeknd Quote About His Growth:
"The music I make on this album is definitely matured. It’s a bit of a different state of mind even though it’s the same person. You grow and you grow and you don’t know what the next album is going to be about. You never know what I’m going to say."
Bonus The Weeknd Quote:
"Staying in a hopeless and miserable situation doesn’t make you loyal, it just makes you miserable.”
