Wyclef Jean is a man who is clearly in shape for his age. And boy, does he know it.
The Fugees star, who turned 43 last Wednesday, celebrated his middle-age milestone in a rather brazen fashion. The singer posted a picture of himself on Twitter, seemingly slathered in baby oil and straddling his Ducati motorcycle, wearing just a pair of briefs.
Displaying his muscular physique, Jean was quick to point out how great he looks.
In an accompanying caption he wrote: '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!'
The buff star wore a pair of tiny red and blue briefs for the revealing shot. The skimpy underwear meticulously matched his Americana-style bike, a red, white and blue vehicle adorned with stars. Since ending his stint with The Fugees in 1997, Jean has embarked on a solo career. His most recent upcoming self-entitled studio album was due to be released in 2011, but still yet to hit the shelves. The singer also tried to run for President of his native Haiti in 2010 but did not win the election. Recently, Jean made headlines when he claimed that his ex-lover and bandmate Lauryn Hill lied to him about the paternity of her son.

Kutcher tops Forbes' highest paid TV actor list
Ashton Kutcher has taken Charlie Sheen's crown as the highest paid TV actor. The 34-year-old star knocked his rival off the top spot on Forbes' Highest Paid TV Actor list and is estimated to have banked $24 million for his role on Two And a Half Men since replacing him on the sitcom. Sheen failed to make the top 10, despite topping the list last year with $40 million. Ashton's co-star Jon Cryer came in at number 7, while Ray Romano, Mark Harmon, Patrick Dempsey and Hugh Laurie all made the cut for the second year in a row. Steve Carrell, who came third last year with $15 million in earnings, has also dropped off the list since leaving NBC sitcom The Office in 2011. The Forbes list is also devoid of reality stars, unlike its female counterpart which features Kim and Khloe Kardashian at number 2 and 5 respectively. The top ten's net worth is calculated to include their salaries from their TV shows as well as earnings from other projects including films and product endorsements.

Warwick reflects on a terrible year
Dionne Warwick's songs were the emotional soundtrack of the 1960s. Her smooth, heartfelt voice was the conduit for a stream of immensely moving pop classics by the songwriting team of Hal David and Burt Bacharach. They ranged from Anyone Who Had A Heart to Say A Little Prayer For Me and Don't Make Me Over. No wonder she said it was just like losing a member of the family when Hal David died last month. Warwick had 20 Top 40 hits with Bacharach and David songs. "It had been almost like a marriage between three people. We all cared for each other very much - true friendship stands the test of time". Now, she has updated and re-recorded an album of her most treasured hits.
This year she says has been 'very tacky'. An interesting word to use when she's experienced the death of her cousin Whitney Houston and her nephew a few weeks ago who was only 24. "This year I've cried a lot. Crying is cleansing. There's a reason for tears, happiness or sadness. Of course I cried at Whitney's funeral and I cried at my nephew's funeral. Imagine, he contracted a virus and he couldn't get rid of it."
"This has been a terrible year. It was quite unexpected."
