Kanye West Hilariously Explains Why He Never Smiles

Over the years, Kanye West has earned a reputation for not smiling, and on Saturday, the rapper hilariously addressed his b*tchy resting face with a perfect (and rare) tweet to explain why, exactly, he doesn't smile. He's famous for wearing a sulky expression, and even his daughter, North West, looks unimpressed more often than not. So what's the deal? Kanye shed some light on his solemn ways in a short but sweet tweet this past weekend, writing, "Not smiling makes me smile."

You have to love that kind of mocking self-awareness, right? Of course, Kanye does flash a grin every once in a while, and we've seen plenty of smiley Kanye moments — particularly when he's with his other half, Kim Kardashian. In any case, well played, Kanye. Well played.
