After performing at DirecTV's Pre-Super Bowl Party on Saturday night (Jan. 31), Kanye West and wifey Kim Kardashian stayed in Arizona to watch the big game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. However, it didn't look like the rapper was the happiest person Sunday night (Feb. 1). Every selfie football fans took with Yeezus, showcased him looking miserable.

People walking by couldn't pass up taking selfies with Kanye as him and Kardashian sat in the prime seats at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., . While he (thankfully) didn't refuse to be in the photos, he also didn't look too pleased to take them either -- as we see in the photo above.

Other fans posted their own shots with the 'Bound 2' rhymer -- or tried to sneak one in -- like this prized one below.

Despite the fact that he's not cheesing in any of the snapshots, Kanye isn't necessarily unhappy. When he gave a speech during the Fashion Los Angeles Awards last month, he explained why he doesn't like to show off his pearly whites in photos.

"Back when I was working on Yeezus, I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything," he said. "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 you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling cause it just wouldn't look as cool."

Spoken in true Kanye style, the man is clearly not as miserable as we originally thought; he's just trying to recreate the masterpieces from the past. While we're not sure how to actually take that comment, below are some more examples of Kanye's artsy "sad" facial expression.
