Or is his douchiness just catching up to him?
Is it a "Kardashian kurse" or is Kanye West losing his cool all on his own? In any case, popularity problems seem to be plaguing the once untouchable rap sensation.
West’s performance this week brought just 4,500 people to the Sprint Center, a venue built for 19,000, meaning less than 24 percent of seats were occupied. He has had to cancel several other shows throughout his nationwide tour and drew criticism when he stopped a Florida concert after only three songs and demanded the lights be turned off before launching a profanity-laced rant at the tech staff and storming off the stage.
So is West’s egotistical, bizarre behavior finally taking its toll on fans?
“We are often drawn to people who have an ego and confidence that is derived from their talent. But an empty ego, based on a fake self-inflated image and concept, creates an over powering sense of desperation and superficiality,” human behavior expert Patrick Wanis told FOX411.
West has made headlines frequently lately, more due to his outlandish remarks than his trailblazing talent. We’ve heard the rapper compare himself to everyone from Jesus, Michael Jordan and Steve Jobs to Nelson Mandela, Michelangelo and Michael Jackson – and amid all that talk, he has also managed to offend much of the Jewish population.

Also over the weekend he was over heard Kanye West was at his Kanye Best during Art Basel Miami at a panel discussion with architect Jacques Herzog. Here are some things Kanye said using his outdoor voice while indoors.
“Famous and frustrated is the most irritating f**king thing…like I am frustrated ’cause I made a film and nobody liked it,”
“If I like it, I like it. No one can tell me who I like or what I’m supposed to be.”
“Contrary to popular belief, I’m not in touch with my femininity.”
“Good taste is a gift, bad taste is a privilege.”
“Watches are dated…all you who has a watch is checking the time on your iPhones.”
“I found my own language in the noise, from which we all want to scream out.”
“When I was in art school I would paint music because I could see it.”
“I think the world could be saved by design… Made more ergonomic to our current state.” “That’s one of the things I found out with Yeezus, that I do have a voice.”
