He is one of the biggest stars in modern music, whether you like him or not. But what does Kanye West know about Sunderland?
Turns out, not a lot.
But comedian Alan Carr (son of NUFC super scout Graham Carr) was quick to give his suggestions about the city down on Wearside…
Kanye definitely knows what Newcastle is. He was arrested on suspicion of assault in 2008 after a night in the Toon following a performance at the Metro Radio Arena.
It is thought that the incident involved a photographer who was taking photographs without his permission.
However, Kanye has been quoted as saying that he really enjoys Newcastle and thinks it is a great city after he partied in Tup Tup Palace.
Looks like he won’t be in a hurry to sample Sunderland’s night life after those words from Alan Carr…
