Crazy Kanye Quote of the Week: This one in which 'Ye explained to us why he never smiles in photos: "Back when I was working on Yeezus, I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything...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.'" So the moral of the story is that Kanye doesn't smile because he wants to look like old-timey people. Sounds about right. -- A.S.
