The Weeknd’s ‘Dad Bod’ Called Into Question By Fans After Date Night With Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez may be turning heads lately with her gorgeous date night looks, but The Weeknd has people talking for a slightly less attractive reason. According to some fans, the 27-year-old singer has the ultimate “dad bod,” and they have no idea how he managed to land a girl like Selena.
TMZ reported on a recent date night The Weeknd and Gomez enjoyed together while in New York City. Selena was spotted wearing a form-fitting silk gown, while her beau wore his signature black skinny jeans and oversized shirt completed with a designer jacket.
“The couple stepped out Monday night dressed to the nines — more so Selena, but Abel was rocking a sweet jacket too — as they did dinner at famed Italian restaurant RAO’s.”
Readers did not hold back when commenting on the article as they stated The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, has what some call a “dad bod.”
One reader questioned what Abel looks like under all the baggy shirts he is typically wearing, and another chimed in with their opinion.
“I’m sure it’s HORRIBLE. He has a DAD BOD at a young age.”
Ouch. Indeed, the “Starboy” singer usually opts for oversized shirts that may leave fans wondering what kind of shape he is in currently.
While some readers called out Abel’s “dad bod,” others questioned how he even landed Selena in the first place. After all, Gomez is one of the most popular celebrities on Instagram and is constantly making headlines for her flawless looks. One reader stated the romance won’t last long as the pair doesn’t seem to be on the same level fashion-wise.
“She is dressed for the bedroom while he’s dressed for a foosball game, it will last for about two minutes. What is she thinking, oh wait! Trophy wives swag.”
Another commenter brought attention to the couple’s lack of “wardrobe coordination” as Tesfaye continues to sport his signature baggy clothing while Gomez stuns in designer gowns.
“These two are so mismatched. She always looks like she’s going to a red carpet event while he wears sweats like he’s going to Walmart. They need to do some more wardrobe coordination.”
However, Vogue seems to disagree with fans as the fashion site claims The Weeknd and Selena “consciously coordinate” their outfits.
“The common thread between each outing is a consciously coordinated approach to dress that often takes the form of accessories, such as tinted sunglasses or fashion-forward sneakers.”
The article went on to say the couple’s New York date night outfits also appeared coordinated despite some fans saying otherwise.
“Just yesterday, they were seen wearing his and hers looks, both drawn from a monochromatic palette, while leaving Rao’s, an upscale Italian restaurant in East Harlem.”
Despite Gomez being a bit more dressed up than Tesfaye, Vogue calls their dinner attire coordinated as the black-and-white looks complimented one another. The site even went as far as to say The Weeknd looked the part as he styled his casual outfit with a bold jacket.
“For his part, The Weeknd matched his black-and-white bomber jacket to the shades of his girlfriend’s dress. The bold pattern popped against his all-black outfit, and smartly, he laced into sleek gray suede sneakers to anchor the moment.”
It seems Vogue thinks a bit more highly of Abel’s sense of style than some commenters as the fashion site applauds his and Selena’s ability to coordinate. While some may not agree with the pair’s outfit choices, one thing for certain is how happy they appear to be. Dad bod or not, The Weeknd looks quite content with his girlfriend and baggy shirts.
What do you think of The Weeknd and Selena Gomez’s style? Does he wear oversized shirts to hide his “dad bod?”
