But fans who ran into the star on Queen Street West would disagree. The artist behind "Stronger" and "Gold Digger" was apparently quite pleasant in responding to photo requests.
Sirius XM Canada producer Aron Papernick told The Huffington Post Canada that he was walking along Queen Street on Sunday afternoon when he noticed West and a group of men walking past him.
Papernick followed the crew into a store on Queen West between Bathurst Street and Strachan Avenue.
With a smile, West agreed to take one picture for everyone in the store, said Papernick.
"Then he looked like he was done with the store, just over being there," he said, adding that people were excited "but it wasn't Beatlemania."
Others on Twitter also managed to catch the star on Queen West.
West took the stage at the Rogers Centre on Sunday night — where he left the audience confused after tossing his mic and walking out.
