The Weeknd was supposed to perform this past weekend during the 2017 MTV VMAs ceremony, but ended up canceling on the show.
But, why did he do it?
According to TMZ, sources say that Abel called it all off because he was tired, or, as they so eloquently put it, "tour fatigue". While we don't have an official statement from The Weeknd confirming this reasoning, we all feel it. He's been on tour since February.
Complex also reports that he called off a private performance in Los Angeles just days before the VMAs. "According to reports, guests to the Grey Goose Vodka-sponsored show arrived to the venue to notice stage equipment being loaded back onto the tour trucks. Simultaneously, RSVP'd guests were sent a notification confirming the performance had been canceled."
Leave The Weeknd alone! He just needs some rest.
Luckily, we did get to see some pretty great performances, even though Abel was a no-show. Kendrick performed "Humble" and "DNA" surrounded by Ninjas and fire, Fifth Harmony shaded their ex-member Camila Cabello, and Logic made his own little bit of VMA history with his performance joined by Alessia Cara and Khalid. Still a pretty good show.
