What do Maple Grove, Minnesota and rapper Sisqo have in common?

They're both trending on Twitter, because word's out that the "Thong Song" singer lives in the quiet Twin Cities suburb.

Northwest Community Television, which serves several metro-area towns, interviewed Sisqo (real name Mark Andrews, according to AllMusic) about why he's calling Maple Grove home these days. You can watch it below:
