While his music industry cohorts were patting each other on the back at the Grammy Awards last night, Kanye West spent the weekend in Brazil with Kim Kardashian and Will Smith.

Kanye got into the Carnival spirit by taking part in a Samba jam session on Saturday.

On Sunday, the parents-to-be boycotted the Grammys (Kanye has not attended the past two Grammy ceremonies claiming he's upset rap artists are overlooked in the major categories) and instead spent the day touring Vidigal, a favela in Rio de Janeiro. The couple posed for touristy photos and admired the view of Ipanema Beach, along with Smith, who is reportedly there to record with Kanye.

Kanye may have boycotted the Grammys, but that doesn't mean he's turning away the three awards he won. This morning Kim (sorta) accepted the awards on his behalf, tweeting, "Awww just waking up in Brazil, seeing Kanye won 3 Grammy's last night!!! That makes a total of 21!!!! That's just so insane! Soooo proud!!!"
