Last night at the 2015 Grammy Awards, Kanye West and Taylor Swift were talking and photographed together. And while Swift may have forgiven West, Kanye is just pretending to tolerate let alone like Swift.
Remember back in 2009 at the MTV Video Music Awards? Taylor Swift had just won Best Female Video for "You Belong With Me", when Kanye West grabbed the microphone and told everyone that Beyoncé's video "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" which was nominated for the same award was "one of the best videos of all time." He was then removed from the remainder of the Awards because of his actions. Later in the evening when Beyoncé won the award for Best Video of the year - she invited Taylor Swift back on stage so she could finish her acceptance speech. West was widely criticized for his actions including by President Obama who called West a "jackass".
Flash forward five and a half years - in the image above captured last night, Kanye West's facial expression indicates a considerable degree of contempt towards Taylor Swift. As mentioned in the previous post (Nonverbal Communication Analysis 3096: Kanye West's Body Language at the 2015 Grammys), those who chronically display contempt or disgust have impulse control problems, are narcissistic, and have a tendency towards violence. While West may be able to "push out" false-emotions for a few moments here and there, his true emotions are readily and very frequently nonverbally leaked.
