Recently, Roger Waters said in an interview that he is far more important than Drake and the Weeknd. In an interview on Friday, he expressed himself as he didn’t get much media attention on his tour. The reporters were not able to cover a review for Waters’ show as there was a concert by the Weeknd on the same night. He seemed odd not to get coverage from the media, and the Weeknd received all the limelight. Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters thinks he is more important than these Canadian artists.
You can call him self-centered, mean, or even self-obsessed. But as an artist, you need to know the limitations of attacking someone for their popularity. If an artist is more popular or says he is a better singer or an artist, then he deserves all the respect and attention. And in our opinion, we think that the Weeknd is the current generation’s favorite pop star. He should get all the respect and coverage from the media and audience.

Further, he said that people have said that Weeknd is a big name in the industry. Waters also said that he doesn’t have anything against Weeknd or Drake.
