Scoop: Popularity of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian could be sinking

Radar has confirmed what the rest of us already know, and that is that America is sick of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. “When putting two egotistical, self-serving individuals together, you’ll create a rather vile spark,” says public relations expert Angie Meyer-Olszewski. West has regularly compared himself to beloved figures such as Jesus.

The public, however, begs to differ — his recent show in Kansas City only sold 4,500 tickets out of an available 19,000.

And then there’s Kardashian. “The Kardashian brand is a sinking ship,” Meyer-Olszewski adds. Ratings for “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” have been plummeting, and lately she has been getting more attention for being a “bad parent” (an unfair accusation, for the record) than for being a glamour queen. The couple’s “brand” could use a shot of humility.
