According to the New York Daily News, 'Ye is as unpopular as ever. Their source even goes as far as to say that Yeezy has been tainted by too many appearances on Kimmy's reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
“His personal life is overpowering his music,” an industry source says. “Every time he plays, people are wondering if Kim is going to be there. It’s not a good thing for him, especially if he wants to be taken seriously.”
If you consider that Kanye hasn't dropped an album in some time and is currently working on new music, this rumor sounds extremely hard to believe. Why they want to hate on our beloved KimYe like this!
The paper continues, saying that Yeezy is only being offered New Year's Eve gigs on the condition that he brings Kim along with him. When you remember that these two are madly in love, chances are 99 percent that they will be together on New Year's anyway.
The source also cites Yeezy's last performance at Madison Square Garden, as well as his fashion sense during his performance at the Dec. 12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert, saying half the audience walked out and collectively dissed his kilt.
“Literally half the audience got up to go to the bathroom and it was the talk of the men’s room.”
Considering all the different types of musicians at the benefit, it's probably safe to assume those folks were never Yeezy fans to begin with. Do you think Kim's presence is negatively affecting Kanye's cool?
