Kanye West in a Career Slump Because of Kim Kardashian?

Has Kanye West lost his mojo? According to New York Daily News, the mercurial producer is losing his star status because of his boo Kim Kardashian. The newspaper asserts that Yeezy’s popularity has become tainted ever since he hooked up with the celebrity debutante.

“His personal life is overpowering his music,” an industry source told the newspaper. “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.”

Apparently, Kim is also affecting West’s income. The G.O.O.D. Music honcho has turned down huge paydays to perform at New Year’s Eve parties in Las Vegas and Miami because the venues want KimYe and not ‘Ye, himself. “Kanye was actually offended by the offers,” said the insider.

And the final note that West’s popularity is in decline came during his Dec. 12 performance at the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert — some of the concertgoers were offended by his leather kilt. “Literally half the audience got up to go to the bathroom and it was the talk of the men’s room,” one attendee told the newspaper.

West reportedly is in crisis-management mode and is looking for ways to get back on top professionally. “He has been meeting with top-level music executives seeking advice,” says the source. “He’s not happy with the direction things have been going.”

If West is, indeed, in a career slump, we wish him a fruitful recovery. Although with a successful album (‘Cruel Summer’) and six Grammy nominations under his belt in 2012 alone, it doesn’t appear that West’s career is waning by any stretch of the imagination.
