The Weeknd & Swedish House Mafia Get Sexy Spooky In The ‘Moth To A Flame’ Music Video

It seems ‘After Hours’ are officially over. The Weeknd continued the rollout of his new ‘Dawn’ era with help from Swedish House Mafia. Watch the video for ‘Moth to a Flame.’

The Weeknd wasn’t going to let 2021 come to a close without another preview of the next chapter in his musical journey. After dominating the Billboard Hot 100 with his ever-present “Blinding Lights,” The Weeknd (b. Abel Tesfaye) continued to put his After Hours era in his rearview, while driving straight into the  “dawn” of something new. Now, he has teamed up with electronic supergroup Swedish House Mafia for “Moth to a Flame.”

The artists released the new track and an accompanying video on October 21. In the single, The Weeknd sings about the ability to draw someone in, crooning, “Like a moth to a flame, I’ll pull you in / What you need initially, it’s just one call away / And you’ll leave him, you’re loyal to me / But this time I’ll let you be.” What begins as a group of naked bodies amid an orgy (?) eventually turns to terrifying, reawakened figures in the sexy — and albeit spooky — music video.

Swedish House Mafia is better known as Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso. The trio formed in late 2008 and quickly found success, reaching No. 10 in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll in 2011. The group is currently managed by Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, the long-time manager of – you guessed it – The Weeknd. This synergy comes shortly after The Weeknd postponed and revamped his already delayed After Hours tour. First rescheduled to January, the tour will now start in January. “Due to the constraints of arenas and the demand for more shows I want to do something bigger and special for you which requires more stadiums,” he said, while rebranding the tour the After Hours Til Dawn Stadium Tour.

2021 has been relatively quiet – music-wise – for The Weeknd. His appearance on the charts has come mostly as a feature artist, lending his vocals to songs by Doja Cat (“You Right”), Belly (“Better Believe”, “Die For It”) and Kanye West (“Hurricane”). He did release a remix of “Save Your Tears” featuring Ariana Grande, as well as “Take My Breath,” presumably the lead single from his upcoming album. Other than that, it’s been a low-key year, musically. In a non-music sense, there was plenty of noise at the start of the year involving the Grammy Awards, and how they snubbed The Weeknd, “Blinding Lights,” and After Hours. This has resulted in the Weeknd vowing never to submit his music for Grammy consideration again.

That music might be arriving sooner than one thinks. GQ’s Mark Anthony Green got a preview of The Weeknd’s next album – supposedly titled Dawn – and he said it was “packed with party records. Like real-deal, illuminated-white-tiles-on-the-floor party records.” The sound was also described as “new,” as in it wasn’t trying to “cosplay” as disco or 80s retro. “It’s the album I’ve always wanted to make,” The Weeknd told Green.

“The dawn is upon us kids. The album is pretty much done, just doing some final tweaks, some mixing notes, additional vocals,” the Weeknd said during the Aug. 11 broadcast of his Apple Music show. During that broadcast, he also said that Britney Spears’ “Toxic” and “Everytime,” both from 2003’s In The Zone, were influences on the upcoming album, but he didn’t say how.

“I was thinking of doing an episode of Memento Mori every week until the album drops. Should be fun. I’ll play you guys some music that’s inspiring me right now, maybe play some snippets. Who knows? But, I’m generally having fun.”

Britney Spears Mocks Her Therapist as She Celebrates The End Of 10 Hour Sessions Post-Conservatorship

Published

Britney Spears

Britney Spears is playfully mocking the grueling therapy sessions she had to endure before her conservatorship was terminated.

Now that Britney Spears is free from the conservatorship that dominated her life for 13 years, she’s ready to air out some dirty laundry. “As much therapy as I’ve had to do against my will,” the pop star, 40, began in an Instagram post on Thursday, “being forced to pay and listen to women telling me how they are going to further my success … it was a joy,” she wrote, sharing a video mocking the “women” in question. 

“Hi so just as your therapist today, I’m here to just ask you a couple of questions,” Britney said in the video, mocking the kind of therapist she would encounter who would tell her to “just relax” while she “did the work” for her. “The psychosis that goes on in your head kinda goes into mine, too, so we need to clear these blockages […] so I can do my work to help you succeed,” Britney again mocked the “therapist.”

The mother-of-two then acted as herself in the video, laying on the couch and taking in the therapist’s words. “Yes, I’m feeling fine. I’ve had a great year, I’ve had a great day,” she said as herself, hilariously deadpanning while on the couch. In her caption, Britney continued by writing, “10 hours a day, 7 days a week … no lie … in this beautiful nation it would only be fair for me to dedicate my life to skits to the wonderful therapist,” adding that she “genuinely” thanked her care givers for their “efforts.” 

Toward the end of the video, she shouted obscenities about her experience, and explained in the caption that it was her “celebrating” since her new medication is “working” for her now. “KISS MY MOTHER F—ING ASS 💋🍑 !!!!!” she ended her caption, showing how much the experience truly upset her over the years. 

In another recent post, the “Till the World Ends” singer revealed that she was on the “right medication” now and reflected on the disturbing issues of her past under the conservatorship, where she alleged she was forced her to take medications that she did not want to take, including lithium, for not “cooperating” with their rules.

“After I said no to Vegas, my therapist sat me down in a room and said he had a million phone calls about how I was not cooperating in rehearsals, and I haven’t been taking my medication,” Britney stated in court. “All this was false. He immediately, the next day, put me on lithium out of nowhere.”

The termination of Britney’s 13-year long conservatorship came after her estranged father Jamie Spears, 69, was suspended as a co-conservator in September, a role he held since the legal arrangement that began in 2008. In her first court hearing in June, Britney called for the removal of her father, later declaring that she wanted to press charges against him for conservatorship abuse.

'RHOBH' Lisa Rinna Reveals Hardest Part of Moving on After Mom's Passing

Lisa Rinna’s lips are staying true to her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills iconic tagline because they are never “going to gloss over the truth.”

The current RHOBH star recently shared a very cryptic post to her Instagram Story that has many fans “whack-a-doodling” their brains as to what it could possibly mean.

In the post, Lisa talks about how she has a lot to say about people, and she plans to keep talking all in the name of her late mother, Lois Rinna, who recently passed away after suffering a stroke.

“I have a whole lot to say about a whole lot of things, and I’m going to start saying them in the name of Lois,” Lisa wrote on her Story.

Lisa has never been one to keep her lips sealed. In the past, she’s talked about everything from former co-star Yolanda Hadid’s unfounded Munchausen’s disease insinuation to accusing Dorit Kemsley of doing cocaine. She also spoke about Denise Richard’s alleged affair with Brandi Glanville. So, who knows what dirt and drama Lisa is ready to spill next?

In addition to her Instagram Story, Lisa also shared a post to her Instagram page saying that she was moving forward with “different eyes and a different heart.” Refocused, she said she is, “Now off to sell lipstick and go kick some ass over there at RHOBH.

Fellow housewives commented on the post with heart emojis and “messages of love,” including RHOC housewife Heather Dubrow and RHOSLC‘s  Whitney Rose.

Between her two posts, it looks Lisa is coming in to “own it” loud and clear.

Filming for season 12 of RHOBH has been underway for several weeks now, and there have been pictures and videos of the group socializing and most recently celebrating castmate Garcelle Beauvais’s 55th birthday.

In other news, Lisa’s husband, Harry Hamlin, recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and appeared relieved and happy that daughter Amelia Hamlin and Scott Disick’s relationship has come to an end.

“Amelia’s doing great, she’s living in New York, and she’s having the time of her life solo,” Harry told Andy. “I have no idea what exactly happened there, I’m just glad that she is solo, put it that way.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 is set to premiere sometime in 2022.

Kim Kardashian proved she was an original in a glam new selfie with a sassy caption. Friends and fans were delighted by the message.

The one and only! Kim Kardashian, 41, proved she is the queen of selfies as she shared a smoldering close-up shot to her Instagram Dec. 2. Calling out copycats in her caption, the reality star wrote, “They can steal your recipe but the sauce won’t taste the same.” Kim looked electric while pouting at the camera,  wearing a smooth pink top from her SKIMS collection. Done up in full glam, she flaunted pink lips, contour chiseled cheekbones, fluttering lashes, and long, pin-straight raven locks. In the background, you can see a sliver of Kim’s loyal, longtime bestie La La Anthony, 39, also looking lovely.

While Kim is certainly no stranger to putting on a sultry display, her new love interest Pete Davidson, 28, has a much more relaxed style. But the star is hoping she can get the SNL comic to get “glam” for at least one night. A source close to the pair told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that, while the beauty likes Pete’s regular style, she’s “suggesting that they play dress up.”

“She really wants to show the world how hot he is,” the insider adds. “She doesn’t want to change him or his appearance. She just wants to go glam for a night on the town or out to a show or something in the near future.” Apparently, Pete is down for a makeover. “He is all about it,” the source said. “He would really go along with anything she wanted at this point.”

The social media mogul has reportedly fallen hard and fast for Pete, who a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife she is “absolutely head over heels for.” Meanwhile, estranged husband Kanye West is said to be “devastated” by Kim’s fling. Another source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife, “Kanye is willing to do absolutely anything to get Kim back. He’s asking his friends for advice. Kanye thought Pete and Kim were just for the new Hulu show and it was a fun storyline, but now that he sees this is real, he’s very, very upset.”
