Your gift of nonchalance
The prostitute in this song scoffs at any type of emotional tell, instead keeping an aloof demeanor at all times. This is something that The Weeknd does extremely well himself. This could be attributed to his drug use, which would give him highs that take away all feeling and emotion, but his secrecy remains even while sober.
During one of his rare interviews, he replied to “Is the air of mystery intentional?”:
Yes and no. In the beginning, I was very insecure. I hated how I looked in pictures. I just fucking hated this shit, like, crop me out of this picture right now. I was very camera shy. People like hot girls, so I put my music to hot girls and it just became a trend. The whole “enigmatic artist” thing, I just ran with it. No one could find pictures of me. It reminded me of some villain shit.
