Podcast: Starboy by The Weeknd: Does he regret his fame and success?

Let's get deeper into the mind of The Weeknd!

"Starboy" by The Weeknd is a super popular song right now, and I want to help you to understand the deeper meaning of it. There's a lot to talk about here, but I think one of the most important themes is The Weeknd's dubious relationship with fame and success. Is he really happy he has so much money? Even though he's bragging about it here?

We'll see. Let's about the meaning of the lyrics of "Starboy" by The Weeknd.

Note: Some of the lyrics in today's songs contain some words parents may not deem appropriate for all children. That being said, this is literary analysis of a song that is played and that children will more than likely hear. I recommend embracing truth-searching and talking about these themes and ideas with children.
