Ever wondered why Kanye West never seems to smile? Well, here's your answer - sort of.

During his speech at The Daily Front Row's Fashion LA Awards, Yeezy explained that one thing that really brings a smile to his face is NOT smiling.

"Back when I was working on Yeezus, I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything," he 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."

Fortunately for Kanye, his wife Kim Kardashian shares a similar sentiment regarding smiling, but her logic is different. After posting a rare smiling photo of herself, the reality star wrote, "See I do smile... even laugh on occasion. Not too often though because it causes wrinkles."

Fortunately for Kim, she can use the smile emoji without having to worry about that side effect. As for Kanye, we're not sure what he texts Kim when he's happy. Does he send a sad face and she knows that he's smiling on the inside, or does he send a smiley and do it with a straight face?!
