Former Fugee Member Doesn't Support Wyclef Either

Filed under: PolitikSean Penn

Sean Penn isn't the only one not supporting Wyclef Jean in his campaign to become president of Haiti.

Former Fugee bandmate Pras has not only publicly criticized Jean, but he's also made it clear that he supports Jean's opponent, Michel "Sweet Micky" Martelly, adding that "he's more popular in Haiti than Wyclef."

Pras is concerned that Jean lacks a definitive plan to help the millions of people living in tents since the Haiti earthquake earlier this year. Pras says, "You've got 1.2 million people living in tent city right now. What are the plans to get these people out?"

He also questions the fact that Wyclef uses a private jet to travel to Haiti, rather than taking a commercial flight. His concern is that "the money saved can help displaced families."

He does have a point…

What do U think?

Wyclef Talks Haitian Presidential Candidacy

Filed under: Politik

Although he hasn't officially announced his candidacy, Wyclef Jean is talking about the good he could do for Haiti.

"I want to be part of a different kind of celebrity," said Jean, "one that thinks not just about charity but policy."

In a country where half the population is under 25, he might even get the chance. The singer is assumed to announce his intentions to run right before the deadline on August 7th.

Wyclef said:

"If not for the earthquake, I probably would have waited another 10 years before doing this. The quake drove home to me that Haiti can't wait another 10 years for us to bring it into the 21st century. If I can't take five years out to serve my country as President, then everything I've been singing about, like equal rights, doesn't mean anything."

He hopes to keep the media focused on Haiti and all of the work that still need to be done.

Go get 'em, honey!

Of course not!

Dem Alaskans don't need no new-fangled surgical enhancement, their busts are as natural as their water is fresh!

Sources close to Sarah Palin are denying reports that the former Vice Presidential candidate had her tittays done, and claim:

"It's absolutely ridiculous."

About as ridiculous as Sexy Sarah running for President in 2012, eh?

Oh, wait…
