Jean posted a photo last week of him on his prized Ducati 998 Bostrom with the inspiring message,
“TODAY I AM 43 YEARS OLD! I look And feel 26! U cant keep à good Man down! Keep à smile when they want you to frown!”
And indeed, many did try to make him frown with responses like “THIS WHY THEY SHOT AT YOU IN HAITI NIGGA,” “Did you buy the Ducati w/ embezzled Haiti funds?” and “FUCK YO BIRTHDAY BRUH.”
Popdust commemorated the photo with an article called “Ridiculous Things Half-Naked Wyclef Jean Should Staddle Next,” with Jean photoshopped onto a fire truck, a dolphin and the Empire State Building.
I’m sure there’ll be an opening as the new Old Spice guy if he ever gets out of music but with his new book (Purpose: An Immigrant’s Story) and gig on Nashville, it looks like that won’t be necessary.
Wyclef is half Nicolas Cage in Ghost Rider, half Evel Knievel jumping the Snake River Canyon and 100% ready to drink Dom Perignon out of a ziplock bag. #YOLO
