THE Weeknd left his fans "scared" after he debuted his new, freaky face from "plastic surgery" in his new music video for Save Your Tears.
The singer had debuted bandages for the American Music Awards a month ago.
The 30-year-old was unmasked in the pop video, where his face had been altered with prosthetics that emulated major plastic surgery.
Starboy hitmaker Abel Makkonen Tesfaye's freaky face looked to have been pumped with fillers in his cheeks and lips and his nose chiseled.
Despite it all being fake, fans couldn't help but be shocked – and "horrified" – with his face change.
One fan wrote: "WHATTT did the weeknd do to his face and WHYYYY???? i have too many questions."
A second one begged someone to "explain what happened to the weeknd’s face!?
She continued: "Awful… I thought it was all an act with the bandaids on his face but it looks like he got bad Botox YIKES."
A third couldn't fathom that The Weeknd had really undergone surgery and wrote: "Can someone assure me it’s prosthetics on @theweeknd face? I just need to know my baby didn’t do something he can’t undo. Like it’s a gimmick, right? It’s just for show?"
Another fan also took to Twitter and shared: "#TheWeeknd mv just gave me the shock of my life the heck is that face?"
And others couldn't get over just how "scary" his new face was.
These reactions came after fans watched the four-minute music video where the singer was on stage in front of a crowd wearing elaborately decorated Venetian masks.
In the video, a spotlight lit up his face, swollen from fake botox injections and looking sore around the pretend surgical scarring mimicking a facelift.
The Weeknd goes on to dance around the room, who sit quietly around tables, while his track plays in the background.
He eventually interacts with the crowd, standing on a table and spraying champagne and sipping on other people's drinks.
The singer then locks eyes with a young woman – the one other person who is unmasked and who eerily looks a lot like Selena Gomez – before leading her on stage for a dark turn of events.
Taking out a gun from behind his back, The Weeknd forces the terrified girl to press the barrel against his forehead before the shot fades to black.
When the video continues, he waves the gun around the room before holding it to his head, pulling the trigger and seeing confetti pour out.
The Weeknd chuckles to himself as the audience gasp, smiling before the credits begin to roll on the creepy video.
After worrying crowds at the AMA's, Abel explained that the look was to raise awareness against drink driving following his previous dark hit, Blinding Lights.
While the song is based on his past relationships, the reference to the "blinding lights" are to the street lamps along a dark road.
The Weeknd explained that the lyrics depict a man who is so desperate to see his girl, he is prepared to drive while drunk.
He told Esquire: "It's about how you want to see someone at night, and you're intoxicated and you're driving to this person and you're just blinded by streetlights.
"But nothing could stop you from trying to go and see that person, because you're so lonely."
