Time To Write Blame It On Me Pt. 2

Honesty is the best policy. That's a policy that seems lost on rapper Akon. When asked his age, Akon reportedly just says he's anywhere between 25 and 35 years old. What the fuck is that about? He told the AP, "All it's going to do is depress me. I don't want to know I'm getting older. Then I'll start to think about getting check-ups and insurance. I don't want that."

Oh really now? According to Wikipedia, his birth date is April 16, 1977, making him 31 years old. He also has said he doesn't really know his own age because he was raised in Senegal, "In Africa...age is not important over there. They don't care. People only focus on it here [America] and in Europe. I feel like I'm 21 right now," he says. "And I'll be 21 for the next 10 years."

This isn't the first time lying has caught up with Mr. Akon. The Smoking Gun reported that he embellished a lot of details surrounding his criminal past. Akon claims to have spent 3 years in prison for being part of an auto-theft ring. According to records, he was only convicted of gun possession back in 1998 which he was sentenced to 3 years probation. He did have to spend a few months in jail after stealing a car, but those charges were eventually dropped. He also fathered a child in 2001, meaning the child would have been conceived sometime in late 2000, smack in the middle of his prison sentence. Either he wasn't in jail or that's beyond super sperm right there.

Dude, you're 31, just face it. You know what, it doesn't matter cause you'll always be an ass. Age doesn't discriminate there.
