Singer Akon was denied entry into Sri Lanka in 2010 after his music video for "Sexy Chick," which featured a statue of Buddah, caused violent protests in the country's capital. "I am a spiritual man, so I can understand why they are offended," the singer said in a statement. "But violence is never the answer and I am disheartened to hear about what happened in Sri Lanka." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Rodrigo Varela/Getty Images)
