Mariah Carey To Donate “Dictator Dollars” She Earned Entertaining Gadhafi

Mariah Carey

Like BeyBey and Nelly Furtado before her, Mariah Carey has changed her tune about money she earned singing for Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.

Mimi has offered to hand over profits from her next single to a human rights charity after feeling “horrible and embarrassed” about performing a private concert for the Gadhafi family.

Beyonce and Nelly Furtado announced this week that they have handed over the $1 million fees they received for playing gigs at parties hosted by the dictator’s son and entourage to charity in protest over the way the leader has treated his people.

Carey and Usher also faced calls for them to hand over their payments to charity, and now a rep for the Hero hitmaker has apologized and insisted the star had no clue she was playing for Gadhafi’s clan when she accepted the concert deal. Carey says she was naive and unaware about who was in her audience.

Carey has now pledged to hand over the profits of a new song from her upcoming album to a human rights charity.

Wonder why Mariah is waiting until her next album to make that big donation???? Oh, and Usher, we’re waiting on you boo. Time to come off that cash.

      NICE NEWS !
      My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———-RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-
      No one donated the money back, not even Beyonce. Nelly just needed some, needed attention so it was probably in her best interest (pr move)to give the money back ! Didn’t they freeze Mudaffi (lol) accounts ? Let him pay it back !

  • REAL REAL TALK

    I understand that it is common knowledge that 50 has no home training, but they are not putting any pressure on him at all. Sure he won’t give it back, but make him look like the unenlightened fool that he is.

    Don`t give back shit!!! By the way mariah…you look good!

  • HERE WE GO AGAIN!

    I don’t believe either one of them should give their money back. If these celebrities aren’t aware of current events than performing for dictators shouldn’t be of shock to any of us. They shouldn’t be forced to give their money either. We uphold celebrities to a certain standard where we see fit. We should placing this same type of pressure on our government for jobs, investigating the so called mortgage crisis and holding thoes responsible for their actions, The Bush Administration should be jailed for war crimes.

    Shouldn’t anybody care about what these celebrities do with their “peanuts”. American and British companies made close to 2 billion “dicatator dollars” last year….and we bytching about some entertainers…smh.

    If Mariah, 50, Nelly Furtado, or anyone else guilty of earning money from Gaddafi, there are countries, including our own that are due the same.
    In over 30+ years, other than the late President Reagan valiant (I’m no Republican or Democrat) effort to take this verifiably criminal lunatic out, no one has ever thought to renegotiate by dictating to a Dictator terms and conditions required in the altruistic interest, not just claims of words stating Rights for citizens, for them to get their “Primary Priority” in their own pockets……MONEY, as Gaddafi received from us for ending his WMD program.
    Has no one yet figured that it is time to “Change the Game” (Instead of turning a blind eye or deaf ear, pretending to not “Be Aware”.)before handing money over to Brutal Regimes of any kind WHO DENY & DEPRIVE RIGHTS TO THEIR CITIZENS.?
    I expect more & am more critical of other WORLD leaders & GOVERNMENTS, past and present in this case, of people who should have known better & had the Vision to realize also & to forsee the inevitable Demand for Freedom and Equal Rights, without oppressive injustices as intelligence agencies throughout the world have long been aware of, being committed by numerous Countries in the Arab world & elsewhere.
    Bad Judgement is bad judgement, no matter who commits it, & each is equally open to rightful criticism, not just Entertainers.
