Wow! We have to hand it to him - he's keeping a pretty cool head on his shoulders, given the circumstances!

Wyclef Jean has finally spoken out about being shot in Haiti, but would rather focus on the fact that an election was happening that day!

He explains:

"It brought light to the fact that there was an election going on that day. I don't think none of you all knew about an election in Haiti until everyone heard what happened to me. It was definitely a graze. The bullet didn't go in or anything. There's a lot to the story … The story is about the fact that we had an election and our party is in the lead. It's a young party, trying to take over the country. [Response when shot] It was more like shock and awe. They put in the anesthesia and stuff. The pain came after all that."

Wow!

Frankly, to us, it doesn't matter whether or not the bullet went in, it still must have been terrifying!

Thank goodness nothing worse happened and he's already on the road to recovery! We're so thrilled that he's got the right perspective and hasn't let this deter him from his political activism there!

Stay strong!

    Re: hung37 – I WAS going to buy the new Boy George stuff, but I'm so annoyed with all of your thread-crapping spamming that I'm going to make it a point NOT to now. Do you think people are stupid? You are the equivalent of religious nuts ringing my doorbell at 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
    Capiche?

    he didnt get shot - he cut his hand on glass. the actual dr who treated him said so. judging by that outright lie and the statement above i think this might all have been some kind of publicity stunt for 'his' political party.

    Re: @v@ – I heard that WJ was listening to the Boy George cd in his car at loud volume and so many people became annoyed at the discordant sounds emanating, that eventually one of them took a few potshots just to stop the torture to their ears.

    Someone is trying to tell you something, Wyclef. I would heed the warning if I were you.

    MEHHH, WYCLEF STORY WAS PROVEN TO BE FAKE AND WYCLEF IS A LYING ASS. INVESTIGATORS FOR THE HAITIAN GOVT SAID HE WAS NOT SHOT AT ALL BUT RATHER SUFFERED CUTS BY GLASS!!! IT WAS A PR STUNT SET UP BY WYCLEF TO GIVE PR TO HIS POLITICAL CANDIDATE AND THEREFORE, HAVE PEEPS VOTE FOR HIM. NO WITNESSES AROUND WYCLEF SAID THEY HEARD ANY GUNSHOTS OR SAW ANY SUSPECTED GUNMAN FLEE AS WYCLEF CLAIMS IN HIS BOGUS STORY. THE PLACE WAS CROWDED AT THE AIRPORT. SOMEONE WOULD HAVE HEARD SOMETHING OR SAW SOMETHING IF TRUE. WHAT A DOUCHE BAG THIS RHITARD IS…

    glamourextra…

    You are CORRECT! My ex is a close family friend and so he spoke directly with Wy's sister who confirmed he was cut by glass….. So I guess Wyclef is saying one thing to the media and his friends & family know the truth. Actually, Wy made it sound like the media were the ones making up stories but I guess it's him….

    He came to my daughter's 2nd Birthday party last September and was so laid back & approachable so he's still the man in my book;-)
