Kanye West has a new tactic for dealing with pesky paparazzi: shower them with gratitude.
When the rapper popped up at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday, Nov. 12, TMZ caught footage of photographers inundating ‘Ye with questions about his future baby boy with wife Kim Kardashian. Kanye’s only response: “Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
This kill-them-with-kindness strategy seems to work better for Mr. West, who escaped charges over his 2013 paparazzi scuffle.
As the photogs badgered the rapper with questions, he kept his head low and walked into the elevator until one cameraman asked, “How come you’re such a nice guy these days, Kanye?”
