And The Next President Of Haiti Is…

Filed under: Politik

michel martelly elected president of haiti

Things might not have worked out for Wyclef Jean, but ironically enough, a DIFFERENT pop star has been elected President of Haiti.

Popular singer Michel Martelly, aka "Sweet Micky," has won the presidency of Haiti with 67.7 percent of the vote.

Some of the major issues that Martelly promised to address while campaigning include:

- Free education for all children

- A renovation of the agricultural sector

- Restoration of the disbanded army

Following his official inauguration on May 14, he'll be faced with the tremendous challenge of continuing to rebuild the country, after last year's devastating earthquake.

We continue to send our thoughts, prayers, and support to the people of Haiti. We truly hope everything goes well with their new leadership, and we wish them the absolute best!

Do U think Michel Martelly will make a strong president for Haiti? Will he get the country back on track?

Sean Penn And Wyclef Jean Hug It Out And Make Peace

Filed under: PolitikLove LineSean Penn

sean penn makes peace with wyclef

For a while now, there's been some serious tension between Sean Penn and Wyclef Jean, after Penn publicly criticized Jean during his bid in the Haiti presidential race, which he was disqualified from.

Now it looks these two have made peace, after arguing it out for 30 minutes in a locked backstage dressing room at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill In NYC's Times Square. The two were at the club to see Haitian band T-Vice perform.

Here's what a source had to say about it:

"They were both in the venue, and when they saw each other at around 1 a.m., they started a confrontation. Things seemed pretty tense, and everyone around them was nervous. They then asked staff if they could go somewhere private, so they were led into a dressing room backstage where they could be alone and shut the door.

They weren't yelling and screaming, but they had it out and aired their differences for 30 minutes. When they came out they hugged each other, they went onstage and stood side-by-side."

Here's what Penn had to say to Wyclef and Haiti President-hopeful Michel Martelly, who was also in attendance at the event:

"In Haiti, we have got an opportunity as Americans whether you are from Haitian diaspora or pr - - ks like me . . . These two men beside me will lead the way if you support them . . . let's move on for some fun."

We're so glad to hear that these two made peace.

Very mature move by both of you, bbs!
