In Honor of Kanye West’s Birthday, Here Are Photos of Him Smiling
The only thing we love more than celebrating a birthday is seeing Kanye West smile. Today (June 8), we are happy to present you with a combination of the two.
June 8, 2015, marks Kanye's 38th birthday, and because he so frequently puts a smile on our face, we thought it a good idea to compile a gallery of photos that show him smiling, too, because it's a treat so rare. Notice that the photos where his smile appears to be at its most relaxed and genuine are the ones where he's looking at Kim Kardashian -- his wife -- and also Pharrell. (Same.)
Kim tweeted about Kanye's birthday, letting the rest of the world in on their decidedly normal celebration. According to the first tweet she posted today (you see, Kim tweeted about Kanye's birthday many times -- six in total), she and Kanye gathered around one of Kim's electronics in order to read birthday tweets sent to her, meant for Kanye, written by fans. Kim wrote, "Not sure why Kanye & I are up so early but we're eating cereal & I'm showing him all of your sweet birthday messages!"
We wonder if Kanye looks at cereal the same way he looks at ice cream.
The festivities didn't end there: Kim actually rented out Los Angeles' Staples Center in celebration. Khloe Kardashian posted a photo to Instagram with the caption, "Kim rented out staples bitch!!! Him and his boys are going to ball!!!! Happy birthday Yeezy!!!!"
According to US Weekly, Russell Westbrook, John Wall, Justin Bieber, Tyga, Pusha T., James Harden, 2 Chainz were all in attendance. Kylie Jenner also posted a Snapchat from the evening showing John Legend singing to Kanye, so it's safe to say Kim really went all out for this one.
So happy birthday and happy face to Kanye West.
