Behind the falls, you can now see a man-made grotto, tricked out with a wet bar, illuminated wading pools, flatscreen TVs and a dozen other details that take time to register fully.

“There are jokes because of , because I’m Canadian, because I make music for women.
There are memes of guys crying to my music.” He scowls, then shrugs.
