Party King turn sprint King Usain Bolt said he plans to retire at the age of 30 after competing at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil if it goes well for him. In a recent interview Bolt said the 2012 London Olympics will not be his last. “2016?” he said. “No. “I don’t think I will be. “But it’s Brazil, right? “I think that will be my last Olympics. “So I think I will retire at 30 if it’s a good season.” Does this sound like Bolt already touting his retirement… Bold should become a deejay or start a night club after retirement.

"We are ready to go and Buju is looking forward to his day in court," Markus added. United States District Judge James Moody Jr last Thursday granted a one-week delay in the start of the trial based on a request by attorneys representing one of Buju's co-defendants, James Mack.

Wyclef Jean: I'm not giving up my bid for president yet AP Monday, August 23, 2010 PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Hip-hop singer Wyclef Jean says he is not abandoning his presidential bid just yet and will send a lawyer to a Haitian court to appeal a decision rejecting his candidacy. Speaking to The Associated Press from his home in Croix des Bouquets, Jean says lawyers will go to a Haitian court today to appeal with the national electoral dispute office. Jean told the AP yesterday that he has a document "which shows everything is correct" and that he and his aides "feel that what is going on here has everything to do with Haitian politics." Jean's candidacy was rejected by the country's elections board Friday night, presumably because he did not meet residency requirements.
