Akon recently did an interview with Blender magazine and discusses booty-calls, stealing cars, being unfaithful and his age.

How old are you?

[Smiles.] I don’t know how old I am.

Nonsense. Why are you so cagey about giving your age?

I don’t understand the importance. But I’ve been blessed to look young for a long time. My pops is 77 years old. You wouldn’t believe it; he looks like he’s in his mid-40s.

Does your wife know how old you are?

She has no idea. Continue »

Quote of the Day: Akon

Akon recently discussed the concept his new reality TV show “My Brother’s Keeper”:

“Whenever I’m not in Atlanta, they go out posing as me and everyone believes it’s actually me. It’s so crazy, because everyone seriously believes it’s me. They are going around getting VIP treatment, girls, free food at restaurants, free everything and everybody is falling for it. It’s a real life thing, which has got really out of hand in Atlanta, so I decided to take the situation and make it into my advantage by making a reality TV show out of it. They get my life, all the perks without having to put in all the hard work I do. I’m constantly working so I can’t live it, but they are out there living it.”

Wow, a reality show with two little faux Akons running around the city of Atlanta, that should be top priority on the TiVo list. Boo (black shirt) and Omar (orange shirt) aka “Akon Jr.’s” must be proud of their accomplishments living the free life as posers.  They do look like him enough to pull a fast one on somebody.

Akon (pictured with Gwen Stefani) discusses a potential new project:

“In my mind I was thinking now Paris Hilton is an official convict, I think I’m gonna get with her and put a record out. I would definitely sign her to my label ‘cos she’s a character. You give her the cutest record, something that’s just for women, an anthem; I think it will be outta here!”

Okay, we get the whole convict/Konvict Music thing, but is he serious??? Honestly, who is really checking for Paris Hilton now, she would be the absolute last person that I would want to hear sing a “woman’s anthem”.

Kid Identified, Parents Want Akon’s Money

Posted by Bossip Staff

The kid who Akon body-slammed into a concert crowd was identified by one-time yesterday and Akon is likely to face criminal and civil charges. The kid landed on a couple teens in the crowd and their parents just hired some lawyers to shake Akon down for some free money.

It’s funny how right before this all happened Akon was telling the crowd he didn’t know anything about American culture when he first arrived. Well Akon, when you look like Venom and have a lot of money, you don’t go around body-slamming “suburban kids” at concerts, especially after getting caught freaking a 14 year-old girl like it was your last day of freedom before doing a 20-year prison bid.

SMH at the parents pulling out their “Ezel” and trying to get paid.

Akon is back in the news again after body-slamming a kid into the crowd at one of his concerts. Detective. Lt. John Berlingieri of the Fishkill Police said talks have been held within the department regarding the possibility of questioning Akon about the incident, which occurred during Fishkill-based WSPK (104.7 FM)’s annual KFEST concert at Dutchess Stadium:

“We’re trying to identify that kid, just to find out whether or not we have any kind of criminal offense,” Berlingieri said. “We are looking to speak to him. No victim. No crime.”

Well, by the look of this picture, identifying Akon may be a problem too. Is that Venom, the evil Spiderman in that picture? They will probably Continue »

Konvict

Some reckless teenager threw something at Akon during his concert and the singer was smart and bold enough to tell the audience to point him out and blow up his spot. Akon then took off hit shirt and told his security to bring him to the stage. Akon then body-slammed the teenager into the crowd.

I bet the kid didn’t know Akon is pushing 40 and completed a bid in prison, a real bid without a phony’ half-way thug rapper’ rap sheet either. Don’t let that shiny white teeth smile and Gwen Stefani songs fool you. By the look of things, he is ready to start singing “Locked UP” again.

Akon: I Didn’t Do Anything Wrong, I Was a Scapegoat

Posted by Bossip Staff


Akon doesn’t want to do anything else to damage his reputation and is currently defending himself in the media. During a recent interview, he denied doing anything wrong and said he was a scapegoat in the situation.

The only thing wrong I see is an old man like Akon claiming to be in his early 20′s .

New York Times discussing Akon and suggesting Verizon has a double-standard:

Many music fans know that Pete Wentz, the bassist for the rock band Fall Out Boy, found himself overexposed last year when sexually explicit pictures of him surfaced on the Internet. Many also know that Keith Urban, the country superstar, recently endured a stint in rehab. Akon’s raunchy onstage dancing with a teenager concerned Verizon. Despite the bad publicity, both acts have received a marketing push from Verizon, through promotions as “featured” artists on its mobile network or elsewhere.

Akon is an Old Man

Posted by Bossip Staff

Akon has been refusing to answer questions about his age and some sources are claiming he is 35 years-old man. Akon and some media outlets were reporting he was only 25. Sources claim a magazine looked up prison records from when Akon was in jail and found out he was a lot older. Last year, Akon refused to answer questions about his age during a Vibe Magazine interview :

In the game, once people know exactly how old you are the count down begins on how long you going to be here. I promise you if people didn’t know how old Janet was, she’d be selling records ‘til the day. She looks like she’s 25, but people think, “Man, that girl’s 40 years old still trying to sing and dance.”

Akon doesn’t even look 35, he looks more like 38 or 40. SMH at Akon rolling around with a “suspect” age.

Akon in a recent press release:

“First, and most important to me, I want to sincerely apologize for the embarrassment and any pain I’ve caused to the young woman who joined me on-stage, her family and the Trinidad community for the events at my concert in Port of Spain on April 12th. It was never my intention to embarrass or take advantage of my fans in any way, especially those under the age of 18. That is why we tried to make sure that the club did not admit anyone under 18 in the audience. Somehow, that standard was not met.

Again, I apologize to those concerned and to all my fans and I pledge to all that we will strive to make sure this type of incident does not happen again.”

Verizon Dumps Akon Over ‘Simulated Rape’ with 15 Year-Old

Posted byBossip Staff

Verizon canceled their Akon sponsorship after a video showed him aggressively dancing with her at a concert. Mainstream media outlets such as Fox News are now calling it a “simulated rape”. Because Akon opens for Gwen Stefani’s Verizon sponsored tour, they dumped sponsorship of her tour as well.

Akon should talk to R. Kelly, age is a little more than a number and can get you locked up. This has much to do about nothing, has anyone at Fox News ever hit a reggae spot. They are not quite dancing like Billy Ray Cyrus. SMH.

Prime Minister Calls for Akon Investigation

Posted by Bossip Staff

The Prime Minister of Trinidad has called for an investigation into the “dirty dancing” controversy involving Akon and a 14-year-old girl. The investigators are starting with the club who some blame for allowing the young girl to party. Deena Alleyne, whose father is a pastor recently told the local press:

“This whole hip hop thing is a guise and I don’t want any part of it, I don’t want to be any part of it””I thought it was going to be normal,” Alleyne said. “I got carried away, I started to dance as well but I never thought it was going to be like that. I was shocked, my head was hitting the floor.

All I want to know is can Akon hook up Pastor Alleyne with a new suit, tie, and some Sport-N-Waves? A new line-up wouldn’t hurt either. Paster Alleyne needs to step his “offering game” up. If you haven’t seen Akon freak the 14 year-old girl, Click here.
