Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.
Wow. I just saw the video & read the article. I had seen the one w/ him & Tara Reid. It seems that Akon likes to get a bit 'physical' when he dances w/ the ladies on stage. I think young girls who have all of these hormones buzzing around everywhere & these full-blown woman bodies...get wrapped up in trying to be these sexual beings. Their minds are still those of young girls, mind you & when the two collide, especially at a concert, on a stage, with someone like Akon, in front of a bunch of people...craziness can & probably will ensue.
Getting dry humped by Akon isn't my thing, but when I hit the clubs I was all about it. I'm sure for the most part, for her - it was hella exciting. Of course when the whole world can see it, parents-included...well then of course you're ashamed - NOW. I think she just got in way over her head...Akon didn't know her age, so when he seems someone dressed sexily & willing enough to straddle him - he probably thought all systems go. I'm not trying to defend him as I think he's mega icky - but is molesting the right word? No, I don't think so. However during that video...if she were uncomfortable it's not like she could have pulled herself away, that man had her ALL OVER that stage. Pretty f-ing intense. Ahhh, I dunno. If she was underage she shouldn't have been allowed in the club. Period.
Maybe now she'll realize that while you should never be treated a certain way b/c of your appearance - this is the real world, where you will be. And grown men can act a certain way that she might not be ready for, so she needs to avoid putting herself in sticky (ew, haha) situations. Now men behaving that way doesn't make it right or fair if it's unwarranted. You still have a responsibility to yourself to realize that a lot of shit's not fair but to still be safe. I've snuck out of the house looking decent & changed into some hooch gear after. It wasn't my parents' fault. Kids can be sneaky as hell. The world's a crazy crazy place. That's my story & I'm sticking to it!
