For years, music mogul and artist Akon has been vocal about his polygamist lifestyle. As part of his religious and cultural upbringing, the “Locked Up” singer is currently married to four different women in addition to casual dating. While many of us would call his choice “promiscuous,” Akon suggests it’s more natural than monogamy.
“The whole purpose of dating
is so you can date this one, and date this one, and date this one until you find out, ‘Okay, this is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. Okay, now I commit to what’s called marriage
,’” he recently told TMZ.
“You find that one woman that supplies everything that you desire in a woman, of course that will be a motivation to stick with that one woman, but I don’t know no one woman that can satisfy every man’s one need. It’s impossible. Just like there’s not one man that can satisfy a woman’s every need, but women aren’t built to breed like that or mate with more than one partner. Women aren’t built that way, men are.”
As one of the few celebs with marriage troubles
available for public consumption, Akon believes that Americans would have less disputes if they adopted a polygamist lifestyle.
“If America adopted that [polygamy] culture there would be less domestic disputes. The average guy in the world has a main girl and they got a side chick. And then they got a jumpoff. At the end of the day as a male we are natural breeders by nature. We can’t even escape it if we wanted to. Let’s say you put 1,000 guys on one corner and one bad chick walk past. You gon’ see 1,000 heads go, ‘Damn.’ They don’t even know why they doing it. They’re natural breeders. It’s in their genes, they can’t help it.”
