There are only a handful of videos interview of him on the internet, and most of them don't even exceed more than five minutes. 

The certain possibilities behind him not doing many interviews. Maybe he doesn't want to give away too much of himself.

 For a certain time, people don't even know that either 'The Weeknd' was a solo artist or a group which, instead of being a backfire for his career, worked on his favor; thus, he preferred being enigmatic.
