After years of battling with the media, Kanye West may have found a new approach to avoiding pesky journalists.

At the opening for George Condo’s new exhibit, Mental States, at the New Museum, Ye used a series of head nods to answer questions thrown at him by NYMag.



NYMag: Are you happy with the paintings George did of you?
[Kanye nods head yes.]

You are happy?
[Nods head.]

Would you make any changes if you were to do a self-portrait?
[Shakes head no.]

Are you mute tonight?
[Nods head.]

Do you want to do sign language?
[Nods head. Pretends to sign, then shakes our hand and walks away.]
