The Weeknd seemingly alludes to wanting to donate his kidney to Selena Gomez in a lyric on new song “Call Out My Name,” and the pop star is denying such a thing.

Fans of The Weeknd were low-key stoked Selena Gomez broke his heart, because out came My Dear Melancholy,. The EP is on track to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 next week, and it’s in part because of how delicious the production is, but mostly the earnest lyrical content.

 

 

One line in particular on “Call Out My Name” caught everyone’s attention:

“I almost cut a piece of myself for your life / Guess I was just another pit stop/ Til you made up your mind/ You just wasted my time.”

It appears The Weeknd is claiming he was willing to donate his kidney to Gomez. The Revival singer underwent a kidney transplant last year – her best friend Francia Raisa donated hers.

ET wrote a story about that, and per one of their sources is denying that. It’s worth mentioning ET typically has well-connected sources, so it’s a safe bet this is coming directly from Selena’s camp.

“It’s just a lyric and he knew it would strum up attention and that people would interpret it exactly as they have, but he was never actually going to donate his kidney to Selena,” the source says. “Sure, he was her boyfriend at the time, so it perhaps crossed his mind to get tested to see if he was a match — which is incredibly rare — but it never got anywhere close to actually happening.”

“Selena would never, ever have asked him,” the source adds of The Weeknd. “She wouldn’t have even wanted him to even entertain the idea! It was difficult enough for her to allow a lifelong friend to do it, but a new boyfriend? No way.”

 

 

The source also added their 10-month relationship wasn’t that serious.

“To be honest, they were never as intense as he’s making it seem,” the source says. “The Weeknd was always much more concerned with his career than his relationship. Selena leaned on friends and family during the surgery more than anyone.”

I think The Weeknd should have made a song about Selena running back into Justin Bieber’s arms immediately following their breakup. That would have been the tea.
