Nelly Furtado's Gaddafi tweet

With Libya currently in the spotlight, Nelly Furtado seems to be having second thoughts about a show she performed back in 2007 — a private concert for guests of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

The Canadian pop star announced on Twitter that she’ll be donating the $1 million fee she received for her performance at an Italian hotel.

According to Aux, other musicians who have performed private shows for the Gaddafi family include Mariah Carey, Beyonce, and Usher.
