How The Weeknd and Jim Carrey's Friendship Started05 Jan 2022
By Eva Araķjo (Web correspondent)
A few days ago, The Weeknd announced his new album "Dawn FM" with launch date and name. Since many people including Jim Carrey were involved in the project, its no wonder that Jim tweeted about it and, yesterday, The Weeknd replied to Jim.
Check out his tweet:
Thank you for being a part of this. Itís kismet. Full circle ?? https://t.co/elXzYAkpYH— The Weeknd (@theweeknd) January 3, 2022
We didn't know that Jim Carrey and The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) had become friends but in an interview he mentioned how it started:
'The Mask' was the first film I ever went to see in a theater - my mom took me when I was 4, and it blew me away," he enthuses. The two mutual fans were introduced in a text last year, and Weeknd invited Carrey to hear some of his new music. "I texted him the address of my condo in L.A., and he said, 'I can literally see your place from my balcony,' and we got out telescopes and were waving to each other," he continues. "And when I told him about my mom taking me to see 'The Mask,' he knew the theater! Anyway, on my [30th] birthday, he called and told me to look out my window, and on his balcony he had these giant red balloons, and he picked me up and we went to breakfast." He smiles. "It was surreal. Jim Carrey was my first inspiration to be any kind of performer, and I went to breakfast with him on my first day of being 30."
We are glad these two amazing artists are friends.
