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!
"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."
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!
