This is adorable. It appears Kanye West has finally found something he likes – Leonardo DiCaprio! We couldn’t agree more. Kanye took to Twitter to share his glee over the actor finally winning an Oscar, and it’s so cute. See his sweet message, here.
There’s one person out there who may be even more excited that Leonardo DiCaprio finally took home an Oscar on Feb. 28 than Leo himself, and it’s totally unexpected: Kanye West! The rapper could hardly contain himself when he took to Twitter to share support for the actor following his major win, and it’s freakin’ adorable. Here’s what he said.
Who would have thought Kanye was such a huge Leo fan?! Just moments after Leo was presented with his very first (well-deserved) Oscar for Best Actor, Kanye rushed to Twitter to show his support, saying “Finally!!! Our guy!!! We’re so so happy for Leo!!!” Wow, that’s a lot of exclamation points. We’re guessing “our” is referring to he and Kim Kardashian. But who knows? The whole family could be obsessed with the acting legend!
Clearly Kanye felt especially moved to say something, because that was his only Tweet all day! We were sure he would have something to say about Chris Rock’s very political opening monologue, one of the musical performances, or the lack of black nominees. But no, it was Leo’s win and Leo’s win alone that mustered up his urge to tweet.
Finally!!! Our guy!!! We're so so happy for Leo!!!

Maybe Kanye feels like he and Leo are kindred spirits. In a Twitter rant on Feb. 16, Kanye talks about how other people and debt have held him back for years, but that his love for his art got him through the tough times. “I’m an artist… the definition of art – or at least my definition – is to be able to see the truth and then express it…” Kanye then explained that he finally got his big break from Adidas. Leo is also an artist, and maybe Kanye sees the Oscar as Leo’s Adidas deal. Or maybe he just really liked Titanic.
