Times We (Almost) Caught Kanye Smiling

Is he angry or does he think he has something in his teeth?

Times We (Almost) Caught Kanye Smiling


Whenever Kanye West, a Grammy-award-winning rap artist, is brought up in a conversation, the conversation quickly turns into a debate. Is he one of the greatest rappers of all time? Why did he name his daughter as if she were a compass? Does he actually think that he is Jesus?

These are some of the questions that get asked when talking about Kanye that no one really has the answer to, but there is one question that I find particularly perplexing: Why does Kanye always look angry? He has millions of dollars, performs at exclusive venues across the globe, wears insanely expensive clothing, drives even more expensive cars, and is married to Kim Kardashian. I don't know about the rest of the world, but I think Kanye pretty much has it all.

The only reasonable explanation that I could come up with was that he truly is happy, but his distaste for the paparazzi combined with his massive ego holds him back from rocking a smile in public. However, no one with that much power (no pun intended) can not have fun. Every now and then, we almost catch Kanye smiling, right before he notices our presence and immediately wipes the smile from his face.

So close! I thought that was actually laughter for a second.

A camera man must have stepped on a twig by accident stage left, prompting Kanye to turn in his direction, only to be reminded that he was on live television. Needless to say, that guy lost his job

"Good try, but not today" - Kanye West

HOW DOES HE EVEN DO THAT? Human beings can't switch facial expressions that quickly. It looks like someone just told him a good joke at a funeral.

Seriously though, it's like someone told him his Lamborghini just got towed from the studio parking lot.

That double take was priceless. This should have a caption that reads, "When you are out trying to have fun but your ex is sitting 30 feet from you."

Kanye is probably wondering how he managed to slip up and (almost) smile so many times.

At least he has a sense of humor.


This is one of the only times that I have seen Kanye thoroughly enjoying himself. That must be the best ice cream on planet earth if it can make Kanye smile ever-so-slightly. I just want to know what flavor it is and where he got it.


All jokes aside, Kanye is a man who is passionate about his career and life goals. He will not take no for an answer, and he takes business very seriously. Without somewhat of a cold demeanor, he would not be the music icon that he is today. He has won numerous Grammy, MTV, BET, and Billboard awards in the last 15 years, making him arguably one of the most influential artists of the decade. His personality is often a mystery and his smile is even more elusive than candy in Whole Foods. You just don't see it every day. So without further ado, I present to you, the smile of Kanye West.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

1762

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
