The Twilight Zone: Hip Hop Artist Taken Aback by Elton's Praise

Written by Chief Editor.

Big Sean was blown away when he learned he had a new fan in a pop icon.

The rapper and his girlfriend Jhene Aiko were among the guests invited to the 25th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday.

Big Sean was floored when his famous host revealed he enjoyed listening to the younger performer's hit album I Decided.
He shared a photo of the trio smiling for the cameras at the event, and expressed his disbelief at the whole exchange.

He says he thought they were in the Twilight Zone when Elton came up and said, ''Love your new album front to back, it made me a fan.''
