Wyclef Jean

Wyclef Jean is speaking out about his scary encounter with the police in West Hollywood in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

ICYMI, the singer was pulled over after cops matched his vehicle and description from a reported armed robbery at a nearby gas station. He was detained in handcuffs for six minutes, allegedly without any idea of what was going on, before being released. The real suspects were later found and arrested just a few blocks away.

On Wednesday, the 47-year-old went on Good Morning America to tell his side of the story, and to call for a formal investigation into racial profiling.

MAGIC! & Wyclef Jean Get Rude & Channel Some Divine Sorrow At The 2014 AMAs!

What a magical collaboration!

Our fave Canadians, MAGIC!, teamed up with Wyclef Jean to perform a fun rendition of Rude at this year's American Music Awards and it was simply infectious!

[ Video: MAGIC! Performs Their #1 Hit Rude At The Teen Choice Awards! ]

After Wyclef sang a snippet of his powerful AIDS awareness song, Magic! materialized from behind some playing cards and sexy ladies clad in top hats to belt out their MAJOR hit.

Needless to say, the genius mashup cast a spell over the audience, including Kendall Jenner who we spotted shimmying along to the sexy reggae beat.

We think Magic! and Wyclef should definitely team up in the future to produce some sweet tunes!

Looks like the wait for Amanda Bynes music career is going to be a bit longer than we thought!

Totes wiggin' out!!!

Amanda was allegedly in talks to work with famous producer and former Fugees rapper, Wyclef Jean!

But now, plans have sadly stopped…

Reps for Wyclef explained he had NO intention of ever working with Mandy!

In fact, Clef's people said he's never even spoken to the tabloid dream.

Earlier this week, Chinga Chang Records CEO Daniel Herman went on the record saying he was bringing the two together for an flawsome (flawless/awesome) collabo!

Lies Daniel! LIES!

Obviously, Bynesie took to Twitter to clear up the rumors:
