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.
