Wyclef Jean took a short break from posing for self-portraits atop his patriotically festooned Ducati while wearing nothing but a Speedo and a lacquer of nonstick PAM (vaguely NSFW) in order to announce his latest project on Power 105. The musician, rapper, and actor is working on securing a space for his first restaurant project, which will be called the Refugee Lounge. Clef says he intends it to be evocative of the old Copacabana, and he’s looking for spaces in Manhattan. “We’ll have international night, where all cultures share. So I look forward to seeing y’all, with food, music, and vibe.” [Breakfast Club via Eater NY]
