Clashes keep happening between celebrities and it’s quite normal in such a competitive environment. But sometimes, even if nothing such happens between two celebrities, fake rumors tend to spread all around the world. This is how the entertainment industry is, people just get excited over a small news and probably do not wonder that it can also be false. And one such news that was buzzing was that The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, and his R&B Crooner fellow Usher were having some disputes.
However, this didn’t turn out to be true because in one of his recent interviews, The Weeknd has cleared everything by saying that there isn’t any problem going on between him and Usher. This ultimately has made the fans of both the stars really happy.
There were rumors that both the singers have got into bad relationship with each other because The Weeknd compared his Blinding Lights song to The Climax song that came in 2012 by Usher. However, as mentioned above, this was merely a rumors and isn’t true.
What actually happened was that when Weeknd heard The Climax song by Usher for the very first time, he came up saying that it’s a Weeknd song. At first he got angry by thinking this, but later as he grew up he found out that it was a good thing.

This song was inspired by wanting to teach my sons that it is ok for a man to feel emotions deeply and to cry. Like many men, I was raised to believe that we have to be “tough” and not show our vulnerability, which I don’t want to teach them. While I was shut in during the pandemic and watching the death of George Floyd, the ongoing slaughter of Black men and women, the protests and the events that unfolded, I became very connected to the wider universal feeling of hopelessness. Like many, I grew increasingly frustrated by how slow things have been to change. I became very depressed thinking about all the sons who have lost their fathers to police brutality, social injustice and violence; the daughters and mothers too. So I returned to this song and realized it was intended for this time, so I finished it and here it is. Link in bio. I will be performing “I Cry” for the first time Saturday June 27 during @glblctzn’s #GlobalGoalUnite Concert, at 11am PT / 2pm ET on @youtube and 8pm on @nbc. My proceeds from the record will be donated to @lisc_hq in support of Black-owned small businesses and Black-led community organizations. 🎨Artwork by: My son Naviyd #icry #blm #blacklivesmatter
Well, everyone thought that things ended here, but it wasn’t such. Usher didn’t react to it then but later he posted a video of himself singing the track acapella on his Instagram account. And after that The Weeknd also called Usher and apologized him for the way there comments were misinterpreted. And it’s really sad how small things are made such a big issue by the fans.
