Is Kanye West secretly Canadian? Did we miss something?
Yeezus has been tapped to perform during the closing ceremonies of the Pan Am Games in Toronto, on July 26 and this week, when asked if he was a fan of the rapper, Toronto Mayor John Tory had a pretty interesting and slightly confusing response.
"I won’t say that I spend every single night at home listening to his music, but, you know what, I’m smart enough to know that a lot of people do," he responded, according to 680 News.
"And I’m smart enough to know that he’s a proud product of our music industry here, as are a number of others."
Huh? Kanye's a "proud product"of the Canadian music industry? Was he confusing him with Drake, or Justin Bieber? Or maybe Kanye's been Canadian this whole time and we just had no idea.
Meanwhile, some Canadians are annoyed that Drake wasn't the one chosen for this performance.
