Why Does Kanye West Not Like To Smile?

Why the long face, Kanye West?

The rapper-designer decided to answer the no-grin question at The Daily Front Row‘s inaugural Fashion Los Angeles Awards, where he presented award to Mazdack Rassi, co-founder and creative director of Milk Studios.

So why does Yeezy not smile? E! News Reports:

“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.”

It’s just not as cool, huh? Sounds like Kan has a great spouse in Kim Kardashian, who also doesn’t smile a lot, stating that “laughing causes wrinkles.”

Ugh. On that note, I hope your weekend is full of laughter, be it cool, uncool or wrinkle-causing. Rebecca out!

Kanye West Was Racially Profiled Back In 2000

Here’s a little blast from Yeezy’s racially-profiling musical past…

Kanye West says he has been the victim of racial profiling- in fact, he says he was arrested and charged with stealing printers from an OfficeMax back in 2000. Why? Because he was successful and had a bold fashion choice: braids!

TMZ reports:

We got hold of Kanye’s deposition in a case filed by a photog who Kanye assaulted at LAX. In the depo, Kayne admits to being convicted of a felony … and then recalls the incident where he says, “I was racially profiled for having a white T-shirt and braids.”

Kanye says cops snagged him for allegedly stealing printers at the Illinois OfficeMax. He gets sketchy, not explaining where cops found him, but he does say at the time he was already a successful music producer.

Kanye suggests cops even doctored the evidence to frame him, saying, “I was driving a white Ford Expedition. When I saw the police report, they crossed out where it said ‘Cream Ford Explorer.'”

In the depo, filed in court by his lawyer Shawn Holley, Kanye says he believes he was convicted of a felony but says it was actually “a mistaken identity for stealing some printers from OfficeMax after I was a platinum producer.”

The opposing lawyer responded, “I’m sure that wasn’t in the charge that you were … a platinum producer.” Kanye fired back, “Yeah, I believe so. I think that’s what — I think that’s what — where America had me at that time for having braids.”

I know, this seems kinda sketchy with the producer/not a producer thing, but it’s still kinda messed up.  Kanye, I hope you don’t think the world is against you. Most of us LOVE you!

This A-List Date Night Just Put Every Date You’ve Ever Had To Shame

Beyonce & Jay-Z Want To Try For Another Baby

Oh you know, just another low key date night with Beyonce, Jay Z, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West!

First, Jay Z and Queen Bey enjoyed part of the Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers basketball game together at the Staples Center, where Beyoncé took her seat during halftime, but not before hugging her hubby in front of fans. She also had some cotton candy before the couple went and dined with Kim K and Kanye in West Hollywood, California.

The “Crazy in Love” singer wore black leather pants, crazy high heels and black fedora, while Kim K and Kanye also showed up also sporting black. Eyewitnesses told E! News that the couples left one minute apart in separate cars around 2:30 a.m. after spending nearly two hours together.

“It didn’t seem like they were celebrating anything specific, just getting together while Bey and Jay are in town,” an eyewitness shared. “Bey was laughing a lot and she looked good, really happy.”

Good, like pregnant good? I wanna know about Baby bumps! According to E, pictures showed the “Drunk in Love” darling enjoying a clear beverage with a splash of lemon….BLARGH! No answers yet…

Check out pics of the date HERE.

Kim and Kanye Purchase Gigantic House To Preserve Family Unit?

Kim Kardashian Has Super High Hopes For North West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are finally ending their long distance relationship!

Since celebs are busy and rich and all,  sometimes we don’t realize when two people might live on different coasts or spend a ton of time not together. Such is the case for Kim and Kanye, who finally purchased a house rumored to end the “long distance” part of their relationship…

According to TMZ, Kimye purchased the house next door to their Hidden Hills dream home so they can expand their property by nearly five acres.

The plan? A giant kiddie park, movie theater, game room, basketball court, a spa for Kim and a full music studio for Kanye, so he doesn’t have to venture off to Paris or Mexico to record his albums. Check out the photos HERE. 

That sounds good, but does it have a guest house that has really good instagramming light for when Kardashian relatives stay over? It’s important.
