Was Akon refusing to touch Congo concertgoers?
The singer has just been accused over the past couple days of trying to protect himself from ebola by performing in a giant plastic bubble in the Democratic Republic of Congo on September 21st.
Was he really that afraid of the vicious virus?
Um, probably not.
Sure, Akon jumped around in a plastic bubble, but those giant hamster balls have been around for years! You may have seen them at the concerts of The Flaming Lips, Diplo, and Peter Gabriel.
The GIF of Akon crowd surfing in one (above) is actually from before the ebola scare - WAY back in 2010!
What's more, Akon wasn't even in the bubble the whole time! He was touching audience members like any other concert! Check out the video proof (below)!
Sounds like it’s going to get worse before it gets better for Justin Bieber!
We’ve already seen two videos of him telling racist, offensive and unfunny jokes as a teenager.
But Biebs must have really liked saying the N-word back in the day because sources say there’s A LOT more footage still to be shown!
How much more you ask?
When you're surrounded by music, it's hard not to be pulled in.
And there are few people more surrounded by music than Laurieann Gibson!
She's rebranded herself as Harlee and released her first single, Dream Warriors, featuring Akon! And we've got the music video for you to feast your eyes on.
There's definitely dancing as you can imagine…And some nitty grittiness going on.
Want to see if Laurieann can bring it as much as her famous clients???
Ch-ch-check out her music video (above)!
Akon has a TON of kids!
Which means he'll be shelling out a TON of money after a judge has ordered the singer to pony up for child support!
Luckily for Akon - he makes lots of money, so he should be able to afford it!
The singer has been ordered by a judge to pay
And both will be bringing their hotness to the stage at the Billboard Music Awards!
And as if the show weren't jam packed with talent enough, a slew of artists has just been added!
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see the full lineup!
Man, is there anyone left to actually receive any awards?? LOLz!

Oh… Uhh… That just happened!
David Guetta's latest vid just went live and it's not exactly what we expected!
The track's message is simple: First you work hard, then you play hard, and after that you start all over again — it's the circle of life!!
The vid, on the other hand, alternates between inexplicable weirdness and poking fun at racial stereotypes — onnes some people might find offensive!
Don't take our word for it, though!!
Pr-pr-press PLAY on the pink (above) and experience Play Hard for yourself!
Do U think David G. is still the king or is this song is a dud?
