The Weeknd applauds The Idol season finale amid criticism

The Weeknd commended the achievements he accomplished on HBO’s The Idol despite facing criticism for its explicit scenes and portrayal of certain characters. The acclaimed artist took to Instagram to express his thoughts on The Idol.

“The finale. I am grateful to share this moment with all of you as the season concludes,” The Weeknd captioned behind-the-scenes photos from the series. “Continue to pursue the vision regardless of the challenges along the way.”

The show revolves around Jocelyn, a budding pop star portrayed by Lily-Rose Depp, who becomes entangled with The Weeknd’s character as he seeks to control her life. In an interview with Vogue Australia, Depp revealed that she was unfazed by the backlash surrounding the project.

“We are aware that we are creating something provocative, and we are not avoiding that. It’s something I intentionally aimed for from the beginning,” Depp recently stated in an interview for the July cover story of Vogue Australia. “I never intended to create something conventional. It’s alright if this show doesn’t resonate with everyone, and that’s perfectly fine — I believe the most exceptional art is [divisive].”

In The Weeknd’s cover story with GQ last month, the singer expressed that the controversy surrounding the show is not as severe as some portray it to be.

“In my opinion, discourse is beneficial, regardless of the circumstances,” he stated. “To me, it’s like, I am simply pleased that there is dialogue. That is crucial for anything I undertake, particularly in this new medium I am exploring.”

The Idol is currently available for streaming on HBO Max.

“The finale. grateful to share this moment with you all as the season comes to an end,” The Weeknd captioned behind-the-scenes photos from the series. “Continue to push the vision no matter how bumpy the journey.”

The show follows a rising pop star Jocelyn played by Lily-Rose Depp who gets entangled with The Weeknd’s character who is trying to take over her life. In an interview with Vogue Australia, the Depp revealed that she was not worried about the backlash from the project.

“We know that we’re making something provocative and we are not shying away from that. That’s something I knew I was setting out to do from the beginning,” Depp recently told Vogue Australia in an interview for the July cover story. “I was never interested in making something puritanical. It’s OK if this show isn’t for everyone and that’s fine — I think all the best art is [polarizing].”

In The Weeknd’s cover story with GQ last month, the singer said that the debate around the show is not as bad as those are making it out to be.

“I just think discussion is healthy, no matter what,” he said. :To me it’s like, I’m just happy that there’s conversation. That’s important for anything I do, especially this new medium that I’m in.”

The Idol is streaming on HBO Max now.
