Singer/songwriter Akon is now weighing in on the comparisons between
Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga, who is signed to his Kon Live music label.
“Aw man, that’s not even any competition,” Akon tells Vibe. “You are actually giving Christina too much credit. She always had her cool little look and way about how she went about things. But soon as Gaga came out everything switched up. Christina stepped out of her own shell to become something different. And the crazy thing is Christina is really talented. She has unlimited range when it comes to singing. Her voice is out of here. I just think she just needs to believe in herself more. I think sometimes she gets insecure because of all of the success Gaga has had not realizing that she was already successful before Gaga came out.”
Akon continues, “Christina shouldn’t have anything to prove or anyone to compete with. I miss the old Christina Aguilera. I like the old one better than the new one. Honestly, Gaga and Christina could probably get together and do something that’s amazing. But that’s impossible if they are both trying to do the same exact thing musically.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK of the Gaga and Christina comparisons?
Ok, I honestly think that everyone is entitled to their opinion but Akon should seriously keep his mouth shut. Christina had mentioned that she might go to a futuristic sound in the future when she was asked on YAHOO! Nissan Live Sessions in 2006. Here is the video Click HERE [3m 55sec] He should do his fucking research before he opens his mouth. I honestly think that Akon is using Christina to give Lady Gaga some more publicity because no one is really talking about her at the moment.
Ugh, ignorance undoubtably pushes my buttons.
