Former Fugees rapper Wylcef Jean has controversially declared his support for the republican politician Sarah Palin.

Jean, who unsuccessfully and rather bizarrely ran for president in his native Haiti earlier this year, told Women's Wear Daily that he liked the potential 2012 US presidential candidate.

"She’s rad. She’s shrewd. She’s cool. Because at the end of the day, I’m for the people, because this is the United States of America," he said. "This is what America’s really about. Anyone should have the right to say, 'Look, I can do the job, and this is what qualifies me to do the job.'"

He went on to say the decision to show his undying support for Palin hadn't gone down too well in his household, with him and his wife having "heavy debates".

Despite showing his affection he added that approving of her as a politician didn't imply that he backed her as a presidential candidate.

"I’m not saying she could be the next president, you know, but there’s something about her," he told the news provider.

Jean is currently the goodwill ambassador for Haiti.
