HBO’s new drama-series “The Idol” starring Lily Rose-Depp and Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye is in a lot of controversies right now. A large section of the audience is not happy with the series. Moreover, a source told Rolling Stone that the series went “wildly, disgustingly off the rails.” Therefore, Vulture said the third episode is “bizarrely edited” and “hackily written.” However, one actor of the drama is not surprised with the reaction. In a recent interview with Variety, The Weeknd who played Tedros in the drama said a negative reaction “very much” was expected about the drama.

The Weeknd expected the criticism ‘The Idol’ is facing


The 33-year-old told the outlet about the criticisms, “It’s almost educational, that this is what comes with being incredibly famous. You’re surrounded by people who you’re not sure what their true intentions are, even if it seems like they’re good. You just never know. But of course, I’ve been very fortunate to have people around me that I’ve known almost my entire life, which is important, and is a gift.”

Moreover, Tesfaye defended the characters confusing choice by saying, “Nothing is worse than a yes-man, especially when you have a bunch of yes-men around you. And when you see a character like Nikki [Jocelyn’s record-label executive], who’s not a yes-man, she might seem like a bad person, but then you kind of like her for being honest. So it’s a very complicated situation for Jocelyn.”

The series is created by the creator of ‘Euphoria’ and recently released its third episode on Max. The story is about a club owner Tedros (Abel Tesfaye) and a pop-singer Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp). Jocelyn who is recently going through a lot of trauma found comfort in Tedros. However, Tedros seems to have some other ambition. Needless to say, it will be interesting to see what comes next.
