The 30-year-old Grammy winner, born Abel Tesfaye, debuted his drastically altered face in his “Save Your Tears” music video on Tuesday, January 5.

The “Blinding Lights” crooner’s dramatic new look led to him trending on Twitter. One fan questioned “wtf happened” to The Weeknd, while a second person said that his fanbase will “love” him “no matter what.” As a third individual argued that “no other male artist can reinvent themselves like The Weeknd does,” another user joked that he looked like Lil’ Kim.
