Wyclef Jean: Running for President of Haiti!

Wyclef Jean has announced his intentions to run for the Haitian presidency.

The 37-year-old musician and social activist confirmed the news to Time, saying, “If not for the earthquake, I probably would have waited another 10 years before doing this….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.”

“I want to be part of a different kind of celebrity,” Wyclef concluded, “one that thinks not just about charity but policy.”

Wyclef was born in Haiti and left with his family at the age of 9 to go to New York City.
