In a recent interview on Pitchfork, Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, spoke about his friendship with Lana Del Rey, and his collaboration with her on his most recent album. "She is the girl in my music, and I am the guy in her music," he said. "Even the whole monologue intro on Lonely Star from Thursday I just realized now that that's Lana. That's Lana's voice. I mean, it's my voice pitched up, but it's her, it's who she is."
