Gaddafi: Secret fan of ‘I’m Like a Bird’

It’s a conundrum most of us have been faced with at one point or another: When you receive millions to perform for a dictator who is later accused of killing his own subjects, how do you then save face?

Mariah Carey, Nelly Furtado and Beyonce are now in that pickle with the three admitting that they’ve performed for the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi or his family at one point or another. Beyonce said she donated the cash she earned at a private party thrown by Gaddafi’s sons on St. Barts in 2009 to earthquake relief efforts in Haiti. Meanwhile, Furtado tweeted that in 2007, she performed for the family and received $1 million. She is also going to donate that to charity. Meanwhile, Carey said in a statement about the time she performed for his sons: “I was naive and unaware of who I was booked to perform for. I feel horrible and embarrassed.” She didn’t say anything about donating the money, but that’s because it’s probably already being used by her charity of choice — Nick Cannon.
