Is Kanye West Losing His Cool Appeal? And Is Kim Kardashian To Blame?

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. Weve 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. The Anti-Defamation League is accusing West of anti-Semitism over comments he made to a Chicago radio station last month, urging him to take responsibility for saying that Obama can't execute moves because "he aint got those connections. Black people dont have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Adding insult to injury, a new study released in November suggests that Wests connection to the Kardashian family may also be the reason for his popularity decline. Source:

Lindsay Lohan finally gets a picture with Kim Kardashian after being snubbed at Kanye West concert

The famously over-the-top couple have set their sights on France's famed Palace of Versailles for their much-anticipated nuptials, the new issue of Us Weekly reveals. PHOTOS: Kanye's most outrageous moments Indeed, West seems to live by the motto "Go big or go home." When he proposed to Kardashian, 33, in October, he hired a 50-piece orchestra and rented out San Francisco's AT&T Park, which lit up with the words "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEEE!!!" on a giant screen. See more cute pics of Kimye . His fiancee is no stranger to spectacle, either.

While the actress grinned from ear-to-ear and put a very tight arm around Kim's shoulders, the bride-to-be could only manage an awkward half-smile. Oh dear. Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan kept their distance at Kanye's concert last month.

Kim certainly stole the style crown, wearing a chic blue lace dress, with a cut out panel at the bust (of course), while Lindsay wore a crocheted black number. Source:

Kim Kardashian's White Slit Dress Has Us Thinking About Her Wedding Gown

Now Kardashian, 33, might be denying ever having heard of the artist at all, and Monica Warhol says its because the portrait was meant to be a surprise. So, what's really going on? Here's what we know: Monica Warhol, who claims to be a "distant cousin" of famed artist Andy Warhol (her grandfather and Andy's dad were brothers she says), is a Tucson, Arizona-based artist who creates works in the same vein as the Pop Art purveyor. According to her website , she is a mother of six, engaged, and (surprise!) developing a reality show with Concussions Productions about her art and home life. Earlier this week, the artist whose creative process involves layering both hand drawn and Photoshopped photographs onto silk-screens resulting in renditions of famous faces that are strikingly similar to Andy's original works told Page Six that West hired her to make the fluorescent pink, orange, blue, and red likeness of his love (which she debuted in In Touch magazine) for $30,000.
