If Akon had things his way, every men would be able to have as many wives as he’d like.
TMZ caught up with the singer at LAX airport yesterday and he gushed about the positive of a polygamist societies.
“If America adopted that 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,” he said detailing his theory. “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 passed. 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.”
He went on to say that monogamy was not a part of God’s plan.
“Men are put on this earth to breed and the reason why God put multiple women on this earth is for that,” he explained. “When looking at reproduction, there’s always going to be more reproducing that actual reproducers themselves. There’s more to it scientifically, but as humans, women need to take more time to understand men. If they can do that I think things will work out better for us.”
“Marriage just solidifies a relationship between a man and a woman spiritually under God’s eyes,” he added. “So, I can be spiritually attached to her, and still be spiritually attached to [another woman], and still be spiritually attached to [another woman.]“
In conclusion, he said, “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.”
