Wyclef Jean told Time he will soon officially announce he'll run for president of Haiti. (The filing deadline is this week.) "If I can't take five years out to serve my country," he said, "then everything I've been singing about, like equal rights, doesn't mean anything." While the Grammy winner raised millions for earthquake relief, his Yéle Haiti foundation has been criticized for overspending on its own expenses.
What did the first lady do for the president's birthday besides jet off to Spain without him? No word from the White House, but spokesman Robert Gibbs said Michelle Obama and Sasha did call him from Spain; Malia called from camp. Oh, and his Secret Service detail gave a "nice gift," but they're not saying what.
Davis Guggenheim has abandoned plans to direct a 3-D biopic of Justin Bieber, Deadline.com reports, a day after we all had a good laugh about an Oscar-winning documentarian directing a 3-D biopic of Justin Bieber.
·Rudy Giuliani's daughter Caroline, 20, was arrested Wednesday in N.Y.C. for allegedly shoplifting at a cosmetics store, police told the Associated Press.
