Because it is not enough to sell millions of records and have a clothing line and be a producer,Akon has added to his Konvict empire by going into the perfume industry.According to hip-hopcrunch.com ,
"Akon is the latest entertainment notable joining the celebrity scent craze. The “Smack That” star will launch two new fragrances later this year.
"Akon recently formed Konvict Cosmetics, and he is planning to launch Konvicted, a scent aimed at younger consumers, and Aliaune, titled after the singer’s real name and marketed toward a more mature audience".
There were rumours that Akon was afraid for his life after the death of Dolla,one of his Konvict artists,although he seems to be busy touring the globe.
He has been tapped to do the theme song for the world cup 2010 and he met up with south african prez Jacob Zuma recently to dicuss that.Before the meeting ,he said
“I’m going to South Africa for a meeting about the 2010 World Cup. I’m the official music coordinator. It means I’ll produce the official World Cup song and I’ll oversee all the official music,”
And Akon's mugshot for when he was arrested for throwing a kid offstage last year has been released.Still looking ashy as hell.

Well what do we have here?Somalian super model Iman caused a stir when she basically called Michelle Obama not very beautiful.Here is her direct quote.
“Mrs. Obama is not a great beauty. But she is so interesting looking and so bright. That will always take you farther. When you’re a great beauty, it’s always downhill for you. If you’re someone like Mrs. Obama, you just get better with age.”
Hmmm..i guess Iman is speaking about herself?I mean shes not very pretty herself.And I love Mrs O so this round goes to Michelle.I guess Mrs O was the bigger person as she invited Iman to some white house women's event and didn't comment.

Iman on Fashion
“In fashion, most women know what looks good on them and I don’t mean those who are stuck in their ‘high school years’ look–you know who you are! Most women want to follow the up-to-the-minute trends and that is when they get into trouble. You are supposed to make trends work for you and not make you a fashion victim. “
Iman on Africa.
I AM AFRICAN, so I am staying on course to make the work that we started a reality to more Africans. All I want for Africans is what is possible for the West, which is AIDS no longer being a death sentence, but a manageable disease as long as you can take your medication. I want that for Africans. I am not a scientist
, but I wish we can find a cure for AIDS in my lifetime.”
Interesting.She also appeared on in harpers bazaar's june issue to commemorate models who have chaged the fashion industry.I see she's still getting her mullah!
In other celeb feud news ,fashion designer Karl Lagefield is still beefing with model Heidi Klum and this time,he had a few words for her husband Seal ,saying
"I am no dermatologist but I wouldn't want his skin.I am no dermatologist but I wouldn't want his skin.Mine looks better than his.He is covered in craters".
Seems like everyone apart from him knws that Seal's skin is a result of a skin disease he had as a child.Hi Hater!
