David Guetta, Akon, & Ne-Yo Underwhelm With Play Hard! See The Wacky, Tacky Vid HERE!

| Filed under: Music MinuteAkonNeYoDavid Guetta

Oh… Uhh… That just happened!

David Guetta's latest vid just went live and it's not exactly what we expected!

He teams up with Ne-Yo & Akon, samples an iconic beat from Alice DeeJay, and, well, they certainly all Play Hard!!

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?

Akon Faces Lawsuit After Crushing A Man At His Concert!

| Filed under: Oops!Legal MattersAkonInjury

akon sued for stage diving alabama concert(1)

Another day, another lawsuit for Akon… or so it seems!

The Right Now singer was recently sued just a week ago and now he’s facing yet another legal woe — this time for causing permanent disability!

It sounds like Akon decided to stage dive at Alabama’s BayFest music festival in 2009 and in doing so, he fell on top of Matthew Graham, a concert worker!

Matthew is now suing Akon for diving on top of him and leaving him disabled with permanent injuries to his knee, head and back!

Holy shiz! That’s horrible!!!

The lawsuit states that Matthew is suing for physical pain, mental anguish, lost wages and medical expenses!

In the meantime, we hope Akon rethinks the whole stage diving thing for any future shows… !

Probably not the best — or safest — idea!

Take a look at the incident that caused this whole mess… AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Akon Sued For Total Failure Of A Social Media Website!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersAkonTech Talk

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!
