Is Kanye West, who seems to be in a perpetual bad mood with his scowls and potshots at other celebs, turning over a new leaf? Perhaps. Now he’s actually being, well, nice to the paparazzi. No, that was not a typo.
I guess a more accurate way to describe Kanye was that he was being polite to the paparazzi. You could say he was being nice, but the warmth that’s generally associated with being nice… Well, he wasn’t exactly effusive or anything. All he would say when he arrived at LAX was “Thank you, thank you, thank you.” That’s a polite expression, isn’t it?
TMZ described his demeanor as “uncontrolled effusiveness.” I wouldn’t agree with that description. He did actually give them a smile, however, and that is RARE for Kanye. It’s virtually unheard-of. His perpetual scowl is one of his trademarks.
Really, though, with everything he has, practicing some gratitude wouldn’t be a bad thing. I mean, the guy’s career is in full swing, he’s wealthy, and he has a beautiful baby girl with a son on the way. He and Kim Kardashian actually seem to be a love match, too. What more could he ask for? The paparazzi should be a minor issue that doesn’t even result in a batted eyelash for him! Genuinely kill’em with kindness, Kanye!
