What did Justin Bieber say about The Weeknd?
Following Justin Bieber’s split from Selena Gomez, the latter went on to date The Weeknd.
The same month the pair went official, TMZ caught up with Justin and asked him his opinion about The Weeknd’s music.
The Despacito singer replied: “Hell no, I can’t listen to a Weeknd song. That s**t is whack.”
Coincidentally, he also skipped next month’s GRAMMY Awards ceremony.
However, his ex-girlfriend Selena managed to show up with The Weeknd as they walked the red carpet together.
Despite not attending the show, Justin did happen to briefly attend the same after-party Selena and The Weeknd were also spotted at.
How did The Weeknd respond?
Although The Weeknd never directly responded to Justin, fans have speculated about the former’s music lyrics they perceived to be a diss to the latter.
In the Nav song Some Way, he sings: “I think your girl, think your girl, fell in love with me…
“She say my f**k and my tongue game a remedy…I just took that chick, and I know you feelin’ some way…She just want a n**** like me, you feelin’ some way.”
The Take My Breath singer did not confirm his Some Way lyrics were a diss to Bieber.
When did they date Selena Gomez?
For eight years, Justin was in an on-again, off-again relationship with Selena.
The two started dating in December 2010 and split for a brief amount of time in November 2014.

She and Justin reunited in October 2017, the same month Selena and The Weeknd called it quits.
The reunion didn’t last very long, Justin and Selena went their separate ways by May 2018.
On November 23, 2018, Justin and Hailey Bieber announced they tied the knot.
The Weeknd resumed his relationship with Bella Hadid but they ultimately called it off in August 2019.
Where are Justin and The Weekend now?
It appears Justin and The Weeknd’s beef died as soon as their respective romances with Selena did.
The two are both expected to be in attendance at the 2023 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
Both superstars are nominated for Best Male Artist and fans are wondering if either musician will take home the win.
The ceremony is scheduled to be broadcasted on Saturday, March 4, at 7pm EST via the above-mentioned network and through Hulu.
