Usher, Mariah Carey and Beyonce are among some of the artists that have been performing for the family of Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi
, according to Rolling Stone
Qaddafi's sons Muatassim and Seif al-Islam al-Qaddafi hired the afformentioned artists for their consecutive New Year's parties. Mariah Carey was paid $1 million to perform four songs at the party, which they held in St. Barts.
It is being considered by the general public that by doing these performances, these stars are getting political, but more importantly they may be supporting a dictator regime. Are they just playing another gig in an unbiased manner, or are they money hungry?
