When you think of Akon, marriage expert is the last thing to come to mind. In an man-on-the-street interview with TMZ, the 41-year-old chart-topper, responsible for the hits “Smack That” and “Right Now (Na Na Na)”, weighed in on Beyoncé and Jay Z’s marriage, saying their union feels “more corporate.”

“If you’re a public figure and you’re in a relationship, that relationship also becomes public so if you don’t open up to the public and let people understand what this is, [the public] will naturally speculate and those speculations could be completely wrong or opposite of what could be going on,” he explained.
