Wyclef to Play Haiti

Former Fugee returns to his native country

July 22, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Though Wyclef grew up in Brooklyn, New York, the former Fugee was born in Croix-des-Bouquets in Haiti in 1972. Throughout his career, he's done benefits to aid the troubled Caribbean nation. According to reports, Wyclef has also recorded a new semi-autobiographical concept album in the country's native tongue, Sak Pase Presents Creole 101 (Welcome to Haiti) for Canada's Vik Recordings.

Though Jean hasn't offered many additional details about the concert, he's hoping to provide relief for the country, which has grown more volatile since the ouster of former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide earlier this year by rebels.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
