The Weeknd Didn’t Win the Polaris Music Prize

Even though Vulture was willing to preemptively congratulate Canada on awarding its top music prize to a shady dude with a free mixtape, our Northern neighbors were apparently not willing to keep up their end of the bargain. Arcade Fire won instead, which is cool and everything, but technically we already did that back in February. If you're feeling betrayed, please remember that there is in fact a whole website devoted to these emotions; to get the healing started, allow us to quote a sample "Who Is Arcade Fire" post: "I can not believe that unknown artists will earn a world-renowned artists like justin and lady gaga for that reason cease to believe in the legality of prizes." Better now? [RS]
