The Weeknd Cancelled His Jimmy Kimmel Appearance Because Of Donald Trump!

Republic Records Grammy Celebration Presented By Chromecast Audio At Hyde Sunset Kitchen & Cocktail

We know what side of the political spectrum The Weeknd and rapper Belly are on!

The two cancelled their performance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” because Donald Trump was set to appear on the episode, which is pretty darned cool. The Weeknd is the hottest musician right now, and him doing this totally makes a statement. Speaking of statements, Belly and the Weeknd both have made their stance publicly known:

“I feel like the way I was raised was to be able to see through all the titles in this world — from religion to race,” Belly said in a statement. “I just didn’t want to feel like I was a part of a celebration for somebody who has beliefs that majority of us don’t agree with.”

Trump has been criticized by some political rivals and voters for his comments on topics including women, refugees, immigrants and Muslims, such as when he said some Mexican immigrants in the U.S. illegally are “rapists” and when he called for a ban on Muslim immigration into the United States.

A Trump spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment on The Weeknd and Belly.

The Jimmy Kimmel show had no comment, a representative said. Representatives for The Weeknd didn’t immediately respond to emails seeking comment.

The Weeknd won two Grammy Awards earlier this year, including best urban contemporary album for “Beauty Behind the Madness.” Belly has co-written many of The Weeknd’s hits, including “Earned It,” ”The Hills,” ”Into the Night” and “Often.”

The Weeknd appears on Belly’s song “Might Not,” which they were set to perform on Kimmel’s show.

Belly, who’s signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation management, will release a new mixtape, “Another Day In Paradise,” on Friday.

“I’m here on a campaign of positivity and love and to contribute what I can to music,” Belly said. “I create songs people go to sleep and wake up to, songs that they fall in love to. For me, being Muslim and being somebody that appreciates my access here in America, I love the fact that I’m able to be here. To play my part in this business is a privilege and a beautiful thing. The fact that I could lose that ability through the actions of someone such as Donald Trump isn’t right to me. At all.”

Take a stand, you two! Hopefully the rest of the country will follow suit.

Bella Hadid And The Weeknd Are Going STRONG At The Grammys

So, I guess they’re still together…

The Weeknd and his girlfriend Bella Hadid were spotted on the Grammy red carpet, looking DARK AND BROODING! I mean that in the best way possible. Bella owned her floor-length Alexandre Vauthier dress and slicked-back look while the Weeknd? He was doing his thing in a black tux.

I guess they’re together, at least for tonight….

FALSE ALARM: The Weeknd And Bella Hadid Are Still Together

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 10.32.14 PM

I guess these two are still together, contrary to popular belief!

We reported yesterday that The Weeknd and Bella Hadid called it quits (well, a “break,” which is basically quits)- but that’s not so! TMZ reports that people got confused (oh, people!) because Bella wasn’t with Weeknd over the weekend because she was spending time with her mom Yolanda and sister Gigi.

TMZ also reports that the relationship has never been one where they were inseparable…they’ve always spent a lot of time living their separate lives. Which means a lot more time for ambiguity and foolin’ around. Still, this pic is a still of them partying in Miami. You can see their weird clubbin,’ loving, throwing money in the air insta HERE.

What do you think of this relationship- will the two be long-term?

Bella Hadid & The Weeknd Are on A “Break.”

New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 - Alexander Wang Show

Guess those cheating rumors weren’t too far from home…

Apparently, Bella Hadid and The Weeknd are taking a “break” from their relationship, and everybody knows that a break is shorthand for, “almost broken up.” E! News reports:

The 19-year-old model and the 25-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, have not commented. They had been dating since at least this past spring.

“Bella and The Weeknd have taken a break,” one of the sources told E! News. “Their schedules got very busy and it really cut into there relationship. They are still in each other’s lives though, just not in the same exclusive capacity.”

The two did not spend the Christmas holiday together, E! News has also learned. Bella was with her mother, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster, sister Gigi Hadid and brother Anwar Hadid.

Yeah, “busy schedules,” busy like The Weeknd didn’t want to be exclusive and hookup with other girls, like, I dunno, maybe backstage at his concert in Miami and riding the high of dropping two new songs (“Low Life,” a collaboration with Future, and a remix of Jeremih‘s “Pass Dat”)? Just a thought.

Bella- you can do better than garden gnome The Weeknd. Also, you’re like 12 years old (not really! She’s legal! No lawsuits plz!), go get yourself a hot, age-approprite model-type!
