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 peoples photos and they look so real and their outfits were incredible and they werent smiling and people, you know the paparazzi, always come up to me, Why you not smiling? and I think, not smiling makes me smileWhen you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling cause it just wouldnt look as cool.
