Akon has stood the test of time as not only a generational artist, but also an impactful entrepreneur whose influence has permeated beyond the music industry. In a new interview with VladTV , the iconic singer and record producer discussed a number of topics at length, including his relationship with longtime collaborator and fellow contemporary music icon T-Pain.

After our first kiss she lets me know she won't have sex with me because she's mormon and we'd need to be married first. It has been closed. I could never put up with the crap he has to put up with but he could never put up with the loneliness I have to put up with Awww this makes me sooo sad. But it would not change my love for that person. He's not home much and his hours are crazy but, wow, I am one happy woman. Listen, you are in a bad situation and it just has not come to a head yet.
