Akon Sued For Total Failure Of A Social Media Website!

akon fantrace lawsuit website social media failure legal woes matters

Whomp whomp!

Did you even know that Akon tried to make a social media website?? It's true!

The whole thing has been awful for everyone, especially Akon. The website didn't work out AT ALL, and now a company that worked on it is taking him to court! They're suing him for $127,000!!!

DAMN!

Atlanta Business Video (least creative business name ever) was hired in 2011 to cut video for "Fantrace" but didn't get paid — and it's management like that that's probably the reason why the site failed! It was supposed to be a place where fans could interact with their favorite celebrities, but didn't quite make it work.

The company claims they put in 1,023 hours of work, but never received compensation!!

Of course, there's always a chance that the check got lost in the mail or something… or maybe they're just trying to rip Akon off! It doesn't sound like it though, so we hope Akon pays up!

New From Paris Hilton! Check Out A Demo Of Her New Single Louder HERE!

| Filed under: Paris HiltonMusic MinuteAkonNatalia KillsDavid Guetta

Wow! We never thought this day would come!

And now that it has, we have to admit: we're pretty impressed!

Six years after her debut album, Paris, was released, Paris Hilton has finally made her return to the music scene with a new sound, some pretty talented collaborators, and a sample of a classic Journey tune that really works well in this context!

Ch-ch-check out Akon and Natalia Kills performing a demo of the heiress' new single, Louder, which was produced by David Guetta and will feature an appearance by Flo Rida on the final cut (above)!

Yeah, is this shiz catchy or what?!

The breathiness with which Paris usually sings will be well-utilized here, in lieu of all of that distracting auto-tune!

Oh well!

Either way, we're curious to hear what else she has in store for us with her sophomore effort!

What do U think?? Are U feeling Louder?

IM5 Bowling

Stars, including our very own IM5, turned out last night to help give back to the youth of South Central El Lay!!

The event was the 6th Annual Stars & Strikes Celebrity Bowling and Poker Tournament to benefit non-profit org, A Place Called Home (APCH). The organization helps improve the quality of children's lives through educational and arts programs!

Stars & Strikes wasn't just any fundraiser — it was an event to CELEBRATE the APCH youth and their supporters throughout the years.

Guests had fun bowling the night away, catching a professional poker tournament and enjoying music from various DJs!!

Other celebs who showed up to support the cause included Ke$ha, Jason Derulo (who made his first appearance out since breaking his neck), Howie Mandel, Akon, The X Factor's Chris Rene, Kat DeLuna and more.

We love seeing stars help make a difference to our community!
