February 9th, 2015 7:13am EST

And at last night's Grammys, he did the same damn thing.

And Kanye was not happy about it.

Seen above: the star rapper sits in silence. Arms crossed. Eyes blankly forward. Corners of mouth turned ever so slightly downward, as if to express a strong feeling of "goddamnit..."
