It’s no secret that Kanye doesn’t like to smile, and we’ve always wondered why. Welp, Kanye’s finally explaining why he hates smiling and you’ll be surprised by his answer.
While giving a speech at The Daily Front Row‘s inaugural Fashion Los Angeles Awards, Kanye explained his motive behind his sad face, mad face, unfazed face, or whatever you want to call it.
“The paparazzi, always come up to me, ‘Why you not smiling?’ and I think, not smiling makes me smile… When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling cause it just wouldn’t look as cool.”
There you have it ladies and gentlemen, smiling isn’t cool and Kanye’s obviously the coolest.
