There are fewer things we love more in the world of showbiz than a good romance story - even if it all ends in tragedy. When two A-listers get together, two things are guaranteed: headlines and heartbreak. We know its wrong, but speculating on the ins and outs of celebrity romance is one of the few things that keeps us entertained these days. Luckily for us, The Weeknd is serving up the latest fodder to feed our guilty habit.

The singer just dropped his latest EP, My Dear Melancholy, and it's sent fans into a frenzy - and it's not just the music driving them wild. As you've probably guessed, the record is by and large about - well - melancholy. In no time at all, fans have taken it upon themselves to try and decide which of his famous ex's the 28-year-old is singing about in the different tracks. Boy, did they dig deeper than a Taylor Swift fan circa "Trouble".
In "Call Out My Name", one of the lyrics pointed out was "I almost cut a piece of myself for your life," leading some listeners to believe that The Weeknd was referencing Selena Gomez whom he split with in fall of last year. Gomez famously underwent a kidney transplant after suffering from lupus. Others focused on "Wasted Times" and the lyric, "Wasted times I spent with someone else / She wasn't even half of you", thinking that this was a blunt reference to moving from Bella Hadid to Selena. There are similar questions about the EP's other tracks, including "Privilege", "Hurt You", "I Was Never There" and "Try Me."
While Twitter users are busy posting up a storm and creating some very deserving memes, the singer will undoubtedly be preparing for his upcoming Coachella performance. He shares the stage with other big name acts, including Beyoncé and Eminem. His new music was hotly anticipated by fans as his last release was 2016's Starboy.
