Akon's Sorry Song -- Is It His? Sorry, No!

8/27/2007 2:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

AkonAkon, hip-hop singer and amateur concertgoer tosser, is singing a new tune -- "Sorry, Blame It On Me" -- where he offers apologies for his recent troublesome events -- including lewd dancing at a club in Trinidad with a 14-year-old pastor's daughter, and causing Verizon to dump their sponsorship of Gwen Stefani's tour, reportedly because of Akon's shenanigans. Someone's had a busy summer!

TMZ inside sources reveal that Akon did not pen the song. Say what?! It seems DJ and producer Clinton Sparks actually wrote the entire ballad -- even though his credit is listed as co-writer and producer. Sparks will fly!

This leaves many wondering if Akon's apology is more of a publicity stunt to capitalize on his bad decisions. An insincere apology? From a man who allegedly practices polygamy? Say it ain't so!

Dang Akon is not very cute, to say the least and I don't think he is all that talented either.

Sorry for you AKON!

WTF? big deal, most artists don't write their own songs and many still get credit for it from the songwriters because of collaboration. Again, trying to make a big deal of nothing!!!!

Screw that, i want to know what happened to Owen Wilson! Get on it already!

Um, TMZ, have you even heard the song? It's all about how you can blame Akon, even though EVERYTHING IS TOTALLY NOT HIS FAULT. He's just willing to accept the blame. It's not an apology at all.

Here are the extremely sincere lyrics:

I'm sorry that it took so long to see
But they were dead wrong trying to put it on me
I'm sorry that it took so long to speak
But I was on tour with Gwen Stefani

I'm sorry for the hand that she was dealt
And for the embarrassment that she felt
She's just a little young girl trying to have fun
But daddy should of never let her out that young

I'm sorry for Club Zen getting shut down
I hope they manage better next time around
How was I to know she was underage
In a 21 and older club they say

Why doesn't anybody want to take blame
Verizon backed out disgracing my name
I'm just a singer trying to entertain
Because I love my fans I'll take that blame

Well    

Listen, I am so sick of hearing about this. He has nothing to apologize for. She was underage in a club that had a minimum age requirement. She was dressed like a 20 year old and acted like a 20 yr. old. Even on her myspace page, she lied about her age and didn't care. How the heck was he supposed to know in the heat of performing on stage that some trick was in the audience lying to everyone. If she wasn't supposed to be there, she shouldn't have gotten her hott azz on the stage. The only people to blame is her, her parents and the club for letting her get. He is NOT reponsible for screening people who get on the stage in the middle of a concert. What was he supposed to do ask for ID before she got up there?

Wow...yet another no-talent rapper making excuses for his own behavior. Nothing is his fault. Everyone else is to blame. Stop playing the victim and take responsiblity for your actions. Pathetic.

p.s. You might want to splurge on a teeth whitening process.

This is not new. TMZ is just hearing about this i guess. The song writer an AKon are friends an started together so when these things started happening he wrote an asked Akon what he thought. It was good for him to do that if that is how he felt, wouldn't you?
