The singer’s Super Bowl performance came just days after he revealed during an exclusive interview with Variety the symbolism behind the striking head bandages he’s been wearing in videos and TV appearances.
“The significance of the entire head bandages is reflecting on the absurd culture of Hollywood celebrity and people manipulating themselves for superficial reasons to please and be validated,” he told the publication on Feb. 3.
He went on to explain how the bandages coincide with the storyline for the original “bad night in Las Vegas.” The singer added, “It’s all a progression, and we watch The Character’s storyline hit heightened levels of danger and absurdity as his tale goes on.”
