Kanye West is a really, really big mush. He just doesn’t want the world to know about it (at least not yet, anyway).
But he was totally busted at the Chicago Bulls game last night, May 10, when he was caught smiling — only to quickly put on his meanest mug when he realized there were cameras on him!
The 37-year-old has explained in the past that he doesn’t like to grin because, well, he thinks smiling doesn't make him look tough or cool or something (OK, he kinda has a point, but whatever...).
“Back when I was working on ‘Yeezus,’ I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything,” he explained in the past.
“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 I see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling ‘cause it just wouldn’t look as cool.”

Um, we don’t know if that’s exactly why they aren’t smiling. But, uh, yeah — you do you, we guess…
