"I haven't spoken to Chrisette Michele or her team. but I didn't speak to her to [invite her to] the show either. It was something maybe the label set up. [But] her choice of words were ugly. Denouncing hip-hop, that ain't cool. Using ugly words could give off the wrong impression. That could make your hat look ugly to me now. That could make your haircut look ugly to me now. Hopefully if we win a Grammy, she'll come out and accept it with your boy. Give me a kiss on the cheek." "That could make your hat look ugly to me now" is the new thing I'm saying to everyone in 2011. [HipHopWired]

Wyclef Jean recently gave us a lesson on politics, and compared himself to Bob Marley. "When you enter the realm of politics, you don't enter it because you want to be popular. When I want to be popular, I pull on a guitar and sing a song. Pras did not affect me because, in the realm of politics, he has never stood up for anything. The person whose opinion affected me was Sean Penn. I had a great conversation with Sean Penn last week and I look forward to going to Haiti and hopefully I can meet up with him," 'Clef explained, before revealing that some of his friends on Twitter think he's kind of a big deal. "I wouldn't call myself that...but fans on Twitter call me the modern-day Fela or Marley or Dylan, you know..." Wow. Yeah, totally man. [Guardian]
