The Weeknd Says Taylor Swift Drunkenly Petted His Hair at Party

The 'Can't Feel My Face' crooner remembers what happened during his first meeting with Taylor Swift.

AceShowbiz - %cThe Weeknd% recalls his first encounter with %cTaylor Swift%. The Canadian singer whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye tells Rolling Stone for his cover story that the country/pop singer was drawn to his hair when they first met at a Grammy after-party. "Everyone was hammered," he says.

"But the whole time she was talking," he says, "she was kind of, like, petting my hair? I think she was just drawn to it - she must have been a little gone off a few drinks. And of course I'm not going to be like, 'Hey, can you stop?' I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that's when I was like, 'I definitely need a drink.' "

Taylor loves his music too. "She actually schooled me on my own sh*t," he reveals. "She was like, 'I've been listening to 'The Morning' [from House of Balloons] for years - it's one of my favorite songs ever!' I mean, she might have just Googled it. But she seemed genuine."

The Weeknd says his hair was inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat. "I want to be remembered as iconic and different," he explains. "So I was like, 'F*ck it - I'm gonna let my hair just be what it wants.' I'll probably cut it if it starts interfering with my sight. I can kind of see it right now. But if I cut it, I'd look like everyone else. And that's just so boring to me."
