The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show took place on Tuesday, and for most people in attendance, that meant lots of smiling, dancing, and sexily winking. One attendee, however, was not doing any of those things, and instead doing the literal opposite.

After performing "Can't Feel My Face" during the show, The Weeknd posed for a photo with the cast — which, lest you have forgotten, includes dozens of the most empirically attractive human beings on the planet. Then yesterday, he tweeted it:

Let's ignore the way-too-lowkey-for-the-situation caption and instead focus in on the expression of pure misery on The Weeknd's face:

This is not the face of someone who is surrounded by not only professionally good-looking people, but famous people. This is the face of someone who has just realized they missed a dentist appointment this morning.

This is the face of someone who has just run into an acquaintance on the subway.

This is the face of someone who has opened a pack of Starburst and it is mostly yellow.

NOT THE FACE OF SOMEONE AT THE VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WEEKND?
