Kanye West has had a colorful relationship with the paparazzi but recently, he surprised them.

TMZ shares that 'Ye was approached by a paparazzo this week and shot him back...a smile. Ye was leaving a building in Los Angeles and first gave the cameras an icy glare. Then he surprised them with a boyish smile.

"It's the second time we've seen Kanye smile this month. Maybe he's turned a corner," mused the news site.

Earlier this year, Kanye and Kim were trying to flee the paparazzi and the rapper walked right into a "Wrong Way" sign and he wasn't too pleased about it.

Hopefully he'll be all smiles when he hits the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards to perform on Sunday night, August 25. We're certainly looking forward to it.
