Kanye West doesn't smile.
It's kind of a thing. He's sometimes caught breaking character and the results can be pretty amusing.
It's the best. Kanye West makes sure to shut down the visible joy when on-camera.
Why doesn't he smile? He once explained it:
"Back when I was working on Yeezus, I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything," West said. "I looked at all these people's photos and they look so real and their outfits were incredible and they weren't smiling and people, you know 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."
Kanye West is at E3. The trend continues; you can see in these two images Kanye is obviously having fun and enjoying meeting someone, but for the official picture? That smile is shut down.
So listen, Star Wars Battlefront looks pretty amazing. You can see it in action here if you don't believe us.
Kanye West played Battlefront, and the resulting image? The team can retire. They did the ultimate. This is how happy they made Kanye West.
Congratulations to EA and DICE. We'd frame this one.
