Nelly Furtado Donates Gaddafi Concert Money To Sting
COLONEL Muammar Gaddafi and his kids in Libya (or the Caribbean and London – whichever is closer) love a good party. When Mickey Rouke and John Galliano get to play the Libyan dictator in film, they will be able to co-star with the likes of Nelly Furtado, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé and Usher, who have all been hired to perform for the family Gaddafi in recent years.
It should be a great show – perhaps the most tortuous musical since Godspell.
But news is that Nelly Furtado might not be into the project, having decided to”donate” the million dollars she was paid to play for the Gaddafi clan in Italy four years ago.
Who the money is being donated to, she does not yet say, but the thinking is that Ireland could use it. Or Sting, who played a show in enlightened Uzbekistan.
One other thing, the Britons who head out to Libya to make money in the oil industry – the ones that had to be rescued: do you feel sorry for them?
PS – Have D:Ream denounced New Labour yet?
