AKON CANCELLED
Just as we thought… the concert that was suppose to star Akon in Sri Lanka has been cancelled!

After seeing the video for the song “Sexy Bitch” where the singer is shown dancing w/ bikini wearing women in front of a Buddha statue, many of the country’s citizens have protested his appearance

“Due to the recent events that transpired in Sri Lanka, we have decided to postpone Akon’s upcoming show… We are working diligently with the local promoters to ensure the safety of both our talent and the fans before committing to a new date.”
–  American Talent Agency

Hmmm… I wonder how his album sales are in Sri Lanka?

HE’S BACK!  T.I.
“I’m Back” is his 1st single… so when is the album droppin?  (that’s what we’d like to know)

The ANSWER:  (hopefully) August 24

Meanwhile the TIP is still waiting his release from hit ATL halfway house

He’s not totally back… yet!
