Akon goes to the pictures

To be honest, when I first read the headline

Akon Stunned After Michael Jackson Takes Him To Cinema In Pyjamas

I expected the report to end with the words "when he came round, it was after midnight and someone had stolen his popcorn..." but instead, it turns out that it's just a report on going to the cinema with Jackson:
"He actually took me to the movies with him, that was an experience,” Akon said.

“I was like, 'Are you going out like that?' He was in his pyjamas and I was waiting to see if he was going to change. He grabs a scarf and puts it around his head.

“Then, he grabs the kids and puts a scarf around their heads. So I grab a scarf and put it around my head, and off we go."

It's not entirely clear why Akon put a scarf round his own head - it reminds me of that anecdote about the blok going for tea with the queen and following her steps of pouring milk into a saucer and breaking biscuits into it, only to discover she was preparing hers for the corgis.

It's also not clear if Akon was wearing his pyjamas, either.

What's funny is that Akon still feels that it's great to be working with someone who wanders the streets in his pjs, and hasn't carried through the working 'goes out in nightwear - might have lost all sense of judgement - judges me to be the perfect person to work with'.
