Beyonce, Nelly Furtado, Mimi and Usher all performed for the Gaddafi (or Gadhafi or Qaddafi or Gadaffy Duck or what the fuck ever) family at one point in their careers for a $1 million check. Beyonce already announced that she’s donated the money to relief efforts in Haiti. Nelly Furtado also said that she’s going to give the cash to charity. Usher has kept his lips shut on the subject and Mimi took a break from laying twin eggs on the leaf of a plant to issue a statement saying that she’s embarrassed about performing for Gaddafi’s son at a party in St. Barts in 2008.
Mimi didn’t know! They just tell her where to go and she shows up in a cocoon of Spanx and heels so high that the circus classifies them as stilts. Mimi yodeled out this promise to do better:
“I was naive and unaware of who I was booked to perform for. I feel horrible and embarrassed to have participated in this mess,” she said. “Going forward, this is a lesson for all artists to learn from. We need to be more aware and take more responsibility regardless of who books our shows. Ultimately, we as artists are to be held accountable.”
And what is Mimi going to do with that $1 million she collected from Gaddafi? She didn’t say, but her rep said this: “Mariah has and continues to donate time, money, and countless hours of personal service both here and abroad.”
Basically, she’s keeping the money, bitches, and don’t try to wrestle it out of her swole hands! Do you really expect the walls in her twins’ nursery to be covered with 14k gold instead of 24k gold?! Do you really want their cribs to be bedazzled with cheap rhinestones instead of real diamonds?! OF COURSE NOT! Let’s all think of Mimi and her unborn Hello Kitties for once!
