Akon regrets letting money tear his relationship with Gaga

90 posts in this topic

 

11:08 mark is when Larry first talks about how Akon discovered Gaga. 

20:30 mark for the fan question "Do you still make money from Lady Gaga?"

Summary

1. He says that Gaga is a visionary and a modern day legend. She is also a great marketer, and uses technology to further evolve her artistry and pop culture. He further says that she practically runs her own career now. She knows what she wants and what she wants to do.

2. Back when nothing was happening to Gaga commercially, he just listened to her vision and became her source of support in order to achieve her dreams as an artist.

3. Now works as an 'advisor' for Gaga. He further tells Larry that he is available when she needs him.

4. He "unfortunately" still gets money from Gaga (I guess from album/song and tour sales still). Take note of the quoted word. Before the questions, he told Larry that he regrets letting Money ruin his relationships with his artists. He has changed since then (now working to get electricity to cities in africa). Now he just wants to be a mentor to her.

Didn't he wanted to release like 5 albums under the name 'stadium' a few years ago, yet they are still not out, right? How can he advice Gaga when his own career is everything but solid

I think he was bewildered to see so much potential go to waste like all of us. He did invest a lot in her, even if you part ways on bad terms, you still want your babies to do good and not take a sketchy trajectory ...

It’s never too late to admit our mistakes and it’s never late to start a new journey. Every day comes with new mercies and I applaud people for admitting their mistakes and wanting to change. Good for him!

He did, he was basically using her as a money cow.

Why are people so against him? He is doing amazing things for many communities that need help. His charity work + helping communities grow is far more important than a silly celebrity 'feud'. :rip: Some of y'alls priorities.

He literally gave her a career. :rip: This new generation and mentality of erasing the past is really something else.

He doesn't do **** with Gaga anymore. There is a reason why she stopped saying Konvict when singing the intro to Just Dance. He dropped her when she needed him or help most so you'll be damn sure she not giving him **** if she can help it. He makes it sound like they are in touch when they're not and that was his choice and Gaga now be too stubborn.

A lot changes in a decade. Akon, like many artists of the 2000s, only had a hot streak for a few years and then vanished. That's like saying Beyoncé should be open to mentorship from Ashanti.
