Wyclef Responds To Loss Of Presidential Bid…With A Song!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikTwitter


Last week, Wyclef Jean was DENIED a bid to run for the president of Haiti. When the news broke, Wyclef got straight to work on his retaliation (while Sean Penn checked to see if Hallmark makes an "I Told You So" card.)

This morning, he released a new song via his Twitter called Prison for the CEP, which takes a stab at the electoral commission, who decided he was unfit to be the prez.

Take a listen to his lament in the song below. It's in Creole, though, so we doubt you'll understand much of it.

Wyclef Not In The Running For Haiti Presidency Now!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitik


Don’t worry, Wyclef. We give you credit for trying.

The official list of approved candidates for Haiti’s presidency has been released, and Wyclef Jean did not make the cut.

There had been questions about whether or not he met Haiti’s residency requirements for the presidency. Wyclef was born in Haiti, but he left for the U.S. when he was 9 years old.

There had also been some questions that had come up regarding Wyclef’s charity, Yele Haiti Foundation, which reportedly had "accounting irregularities." Yikes.

Sorry it didn’t work out, but you had a good run there, Wyclef! Maybe next time.

Do U think Wyclef should have made the list?

Wyclef Responds To Death Threats

Filed under: Music MinutePolitik


Though you would think the people of Haiti would be enamored with the idea of having such a high-profiled president, Wyclef Jean has been receiving countless death threats from people insisting he retract his big for Haitian presidency!

However, those hoping their hate would detour Wyclef from his presidential path were wasting their time. In fact, Wyclef prepared himself for such a backlash. In a recent interview, he explained:

"In the past couple of days we have received a few death threats. Just for our safety we came to an area we feel is secured - that is my town. We're in an area where we're comfortable, the area where we were at before, we weren't comfortable. We know this situation we've embarked on, death threats come with the territory. But beyond that it's not about all those negative information."

Truth is, this all might be a bust anyway, as a the Haitian electoral committee must decide first who is eligible to run for presidency. They should make their announcement tomorrow, but regardless of the outcome, Wyclef has plans to stay involved with the country:

"If after Friday we're not approved I will continue doing what I've been doing in Haiti. We'll be respected as a political force. The important thing is I hope we can be part of the big plan."

We're sure you will be. Just because they don't want you as their president, doesn't mean they don't want your money and influence.

Gore Investigated! Al's Inconvenient Abuse Charges

Filed under: Al Gore


Worst. Massage. Ever.

Poor Al Gore. All he wanted when he got a massage from Molly Haggerty at his Portland, Oregon hotel in 2006 was a happy ending some relaxation, but now he’s still stressed.

Aren’t massages supposed to relieve stress?

Sources say that Al Gore was questioned by police in Portland last week about sexual abuse claims from his former masseuse Haggerty.

First, Gore wins loses the presidency to Bush, then he splits with his wife of 40 years, Tipper, and now detectives are reopening this case of sexual abuse allegations against him.

Give the guy a break. He’s trying to save the environment, and he was hilarious on 30 Rock.

We’re giving him the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise.
