Kim Kardashian arriving for a flight at Miami International Airport (12/16)
Has Kanye West’s career gone completely to shit since he started dating Kim Kardashian? Why yes, yes it has. From the New York Daily News:
“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.”
Kardashian is also affecting West’s income. The rapper was offered several opportunities to host New Year’s Eve parties in Vegas and Miami — but only if he would bring Kardashian. West declined the offers. “Kanye was actually offended by the offers,” says the source.
In the beginning of their relationship, West tried to put his foot down when it came to appearing on the Kardashian family’s shows. “He made it clear to her he doesn’t want to be on her show, but Kim gets upset so he caves in,” adds the source.
West seems to be savvy about his haters and plans on restructuring his team soon. “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.”
My daddy once told me: “Son, if you’re gonna lay down with pigs, then you should expect to get hit with slop . . . now be a good lad and help me bury this dead hooker.” Wise words from a wise man. Kanye could do worse than to take advice from my old man — any idiot could have told him that Fatso would desperately claw at his A-list status to pull her enormous ass off the D-list (sorry scat fans, she’s a D-lister). What’s funny to me is how easily Kanye gave up his fame just to get front-of-the-line privileges for a rollercoaster that everyone’s already ridden. Maybe Kanye West isn’t as big as he thinks he is. Think about it — how smart would you be if not only did you reuse toilet paper, but you let that toilet paper follow you around to remind you of your dirty deed?
