PHOTO: Wyclef Jean Tweets A Beefcake Birthday Picture

PHOTO: Hip-hop star Wyclef Jean just turned 43 but he’s not showing any signs of wear and tear—as this photo of him riding a Ducati in nothing but a Speedo illustrates. The Haitian sensation tweeted the pic along with the message, “TODAY I AM 43 YEARS OLD! I look And feel 26! U cant keep a good Man down! Keep a smile when they want you to frown!”

He’s a poet and he didn’t even know it!  Actually, he probably does.

    Hot but…who?

  • MikeE

    he was one of the contenders for the presidency of Haiti.

  • MikeE

    and I have NO idea why they would post a pic of him here.. has nothing to do at all with LGBT news.

  • Eric Auerbach

    @MikeE: That’s how you know him? As “one of the contenders for the presidency of Haiti”?

  • Captain proton

    @MikeE: Don’t you know the old story, about how every time some hot guy strips down to his undies on camera, a gay angel gets his wings?

  • MikeE

    @Eric Auerbach: yes. it was in the news a lot here: a pop singer presenting himself to the presidency of Haiti. Why? Did you know who he was?

  • RomanHans

    Uh, he’s the guy who’s sooo dedicated to solving Haiti’s problems that he created a charity to help them . . . and then charged the charity $100,000 to perform at a benefit concert.

  • Hillers

    @RomanHans: Took the words right out of my mouth. Sure, he’s hot… when he’s not trying to swindle people out of cash under the guise of charitable means.

  • Spike

    @MikeE: Welcome to Queerty! And get used to it.

  • Eric Auerbach

    @MikeE: Yes. One third of the Fugees + the “featuring…” in about a gazillion songs (Hips Don’t Lie by Shakira comes to mind…)

  • MikeE

    @Eric Auerbach: and yes, that IS how I know of him, as one of the candidates for teh presidency of Haiti. I have absolutely NO idea who or what a “Fugee” is. I know what a fugue is. And I only know of Shakira from the parodies on Late Night TV.

    I have no idea why you felt the need to smug it up and come off “superior” in your knowledge of who he is as a pop star. I wasn’t even responding to you. Someone else asked who he was. As far as I’m concerned, his claim to fame is a failed candidacy to the presidency of a small corrupt nation.

    The pop music stuff? completely insignificant to me.

  • Gigi Gee

    @Gigi Gee: Upon closer inspection, no. All upper body and skinny little legs.

  • balehead

    What a charity swindler!

  • iBLOW

    He was in the fuggess with Lauryn Hill

  • Eric Auerbach

    @MikeE: Actually, I was genuinely surprised that that’s how you knew him. Then you asked how *I* knew him, and I told you. Any smugness was imagined by you. On the other hand: “I have absolutely NO idea who or what a “Fugee” is. I know what a fugue is.” Oooh, la di da. Excusez-moi, monsieur. Sorry I mentioned something as vulgar as “pop music stuff.” Didn’t you realize you were busy listening to Bach and sipping sherry with Frasier and Niles.

  • Little-Kiwi

    OMG he is SOOOO sexy

  • viveutvivas

    Frankly, he doesn’t look all that great for 43.

  • Rockery

    @MikeE:

    LOL! Are you 60? Hips don’t lie was on every radio station, all day long has 100 million views on YouTube!

    Side note: he is annoying

  • hamoboy

    @Eric Auerbach: IKR? Everyone should at least know him as the guy behind Lauryn Hill’s emotional breakdown and later downfall.

  • PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID

    always fancied him. got that ugly yet sexy vibe which confounds me.

    i used to go out with guy because he reminded me of him; he was white — how does that work? had the same arrogant swag too.

    wycliff used to be a stripper so you know he’s packin. which is nice. but i don’t ever need to hear that bad bob-marley-being-strangled-while-choking-on-cheese-grater vocal again. not even ONE TIME!. let alone TWO TIMES!
    (he ought to be have been killed rather harshly for the way he marred lauren’s beautiful work on killing me softly)

  • drea

    I can’t believe you’re giving this twat any of your time. The f-ck. I guess any time some guy takes his clothes off, he’s somehow worth talking about.

    He not only IS a douche, but God does he look like one in this picture. God.
