Wyclef Jean Explains Speedo Picture, Says He Doesn't Think Lauryn Hill Is Crazy

Wyclef Jean addresses his now infamous picture of him on a bike while wearing a Speedo.

Wyclef Jean became a punching bag after releasing a photograph of him wearing nothing but a Speedo while sitting on a motorcycle. During an interview with Power 105's The Breakfast Club, 'Clef finally broke his silence on the snapshot, stating that it was from an old photo shoot and had been on the Internet prior to him tweeting it on his birthday.

"First of all, the pic with the Speedo, that's an old pic. I'm part of a bike club. Bike-Clef wore Speedos at the time. That's actually an old photo shoot, and those photos are actually up on Facebook or Instagram," he said. "This is actually a photoshoot for a company in Italy. I said 'I turned 43, I feel 26' based on that photo shoot that I had did. I'm telling you when I did the photo shoot so that you clear, right?"

He turned his attention to Lauryn Hill, stating that he doesn't think she's gone crazy. He noted that he once called her crazy, but said that he was in a situation where he thought she might be suffering from bipolar disorder.

"First of all, I don't think Lauryn's crazy. I clearly said that. If y'all follow historically what I said, I just felt personally that there was a situation where I felt she was bipolar. I know people that's crazy, but I also have seen syndromes of people that I feel one day they're a certain way, another day they're a certain way. That was more of what I expressed."

    Rap is becoming a predominantly gay culture. Anyone else notice that? Once hollywood gets its hands on something, it gays it up.

    • Dispear

      yeah, it is true that rap has turned gay, by design. Every major black rapper is being asked what he thinks about gay marriage. Between the misogyny and the skinny jeans and greased up rappers dancing on stage with a bunch of shirtless negroes, rap is the LEAST masculine of all popular music. Mos Def called it "the rap3 over". KRS-One called it years ago on "ya strugglin', albeit with respect to the r&b that has infected rap.

  • Malone

    You always did have a dull sense of humor... as well as a dull taste in men but your taste in men is a whole different other story altogether. I believe that story starts with your father. Sincerely Yours -Malone

      and yet here you are... throwing a temper tantrum because some no name cornball is trolling on you to the point where it's virtually impossibly to write comments about a man in speedos. Where in the same boat asshole. Lets see if we can get to where we have to be without tipping over the bow of the boat huh? Ps. hey uh.. I know this is a bad time to mention this but uh... you got any cute sisters or cousins you can hook me up with.. I'm kind of lonely. Hey man we should even hang out sometime. Why you may ask? Simple: Free weed and booze. Sincerely Yours -Malone

    The picture might have been up before you tweeted it Wyclef, but how old is it really (do we need to analyze your receding hairline over the past few years?) and how did it get on the internet in the first place? The issue isn't that you put up the picture now, the issue is that you put up the picture at all. Regardless of when you did it, you thought it was okay to put this picture up. Major fail. And just think, you wanted to be the president of Haiti. Okay, it is Haiti I guess, but do you want to see your country's president in a picture like that? Dude has always been a cornball. He'd be on stage and he'd make some comment he thought was funny and I'd feel sorry for Pras and Lauren. P.S. You need to be very thankful this was not up when LL was going after you or when Canibus started blaming you for his album flopping!!

    Fuck all that, what about the money he stole. Did they talk about that? I'm at work and can't watch the video, SMDH. I'd rather read what he had to say about that instead of some damn picture.
