Is Kim Kardashian ruining Kanye West’s career? That’s the question being asked after a report surfaced that Kanye was offered a large sum of money to appear at New Year’s Eve party, but only if he brought his girlfriend, Kim.
This coupled with lukewarm sales for his compilation album, Cruel Summer, and bizarre performance at the 12/12/12 Benefit Concert, has some thinking Kim is ruining Kanye’s brand. Even the rapper’s peers (Chris Brown, Cam’ron) panned him after he appeared onstage wearing a leather skirt that he probably borrowed from Kim’s closet.
Then there’s the rapper’s three night-stint later this month in Revel Beach, NJ. RumorFix has learned that the rapper has failed to sell-out any of his three shows, and it doesn’t look like he’ll even come close.
As of this morning, there are hundreds of seats still available for concerts on December 28, 29 and 30. By comparison, when Jay-Z announced he would be performing eight shows in Brooklyn earlier this year, all eight shows were completely sold out within a week.
Jay also didn’t list his tickets at exorbitant prices in a state ravaged by a hurricane. Tickets for Kanye’s show range from $110 – $310. Jay, by comparison, listed his tickets at around $40.
This illustration shows just how many seats are still available for Kanye’s first show. The dark blue areas are places where there are an abundance of seats; the lighter areas, fewer seats.
