Wyclef Jean has posed for plenty of respectable photographs while visiting the children of earthquake-devastated Haiti with former President Bill Clinton, and campaigning for the presidency of the country back in 2010. But for some reason, the former Fugees singer chose to share a very different pic of himself with the world on Wednesday as he celebrated his 43rd birthday. The snap that is surely burned into the minds of everyone who sees it shows Jean wearing only a barely-there pair of red-and-blue undies, appearing to be doused in sweat or perhaps baby oil, and — to top it all off — straddling a Ducati motorcycle that matches his briefs. "TODAY I AM 43 YEARS OLD!" he wrote alongside the photo posted on Twitter. "I look And feel 26! U cant keep a good Man down! Keep a smile when they want you to frown!"

One – just one – of the strange aspects of Jean's overshare is the fact that the photograph was clearly taken outside. Can you imagine the catcalls he heard while posing?!

Jean, whose charity the Yele Haiti foundation reportedly went out of business in September due to financial scandals, has been baring more than his buff bod lately. In his new autobiography, Purpose, which hit bookshelves last month, Jean reveals the details of his rocky romance with fellow Fugees member Lauryn Hill that eventually led to the demise of the group. The love affair began just after the group formed in 1992 and didn't end until just before the Fugees broke up in 1997, after Jean claims that he discovered Hill was lying about her oldest son being his child. The boy was actually the offspring of Bob Marley's son, Rohan. "In that moment something died between us," he writes. "I was married and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she led me to believe that the baby was mine, and I couldn't forgive that."
