Kanye West is always wearing the “I aint got time for this” kind of face , and if you've ever wondered why, well he’s got an answer for you.

The rapper revealed his reason for not smiling in photos while speaking this week at the Fashion Los Angeles Awards. He said, “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.”

“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 because it just wouldn’t look as cool.”
