If these reports are true than Beyonce can too and Usher can go fuck himself while we are at it.

None of these folks needs money so badly as to work for the scum (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/23/world/africa/23cables.html) who hired them.

Sorry.


After New Year’s Day 2009, Western media reported that Seif al-Islam el-Qaddafi (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/q/seif_alislam_el_qaddafi/index.html?inline=nyt-per), a son of the Libyan leader Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/q/muammar_el_qaddafi/index.html?inline=nyt-per), had paid Mariah Carey (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/c/mariah_carey/index.html?inline=nyt-per) $1 million to sing just four songs at a bash on the Caribbean island of St. Barts.

In the newspaper he controlled, Seif indignantly denied the report — the big spender, he said, was his brother, Muatassim, Libya (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/international/countriesandterritories/libya/index.html?inline=nyt-geo)’s national security adviser, according to an American diplomatic cable from the capital, Tripoli.

A year ago, a cable reported that proliferating scandals had sent the clan into a “tailspin” and “provided local observers with enough dirt for a Libyan soap opera.” Muatassim had repeated his St. Barts New Year’s fest, this time hiring the pop singers Beyoncé (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/k/beyonce_knowles/index.html?inline=nyt-per) and Usher.

I wonder if the families of the Lockerbie (http://edition.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/africa/02/23/libya.lockerbie/) victims are happy in the knowledge that the son of well-known tyrant, terrorist and dictator who ordered the airplane bombing was splashing mad money at these artists... none of whom are out of money or legitimate work and all who call America home.


No excuse.

Just blind greed.

Funny how we were just talking last night how usual it has become on the French riviera to see not only members of the main Saudi families, but also of the now former one ruling Lybia and probably soon-to-be former Syria, sitting around in clubs surrounded by bimbos and magnums of Cristal etc., never seen dancing but throwing thousands of €s at the DJ, relentlessly, to get him to play Arabic songs.

It somehow became part of a certain accepted folklore, though it would be considered strange, shocking even, to see similar behavior from members of the royal families of say England, or Sweden, or some cousin of the king of Belgium... throwing cash around requesting songs by Jacques Brel. :lol:

With what's going on right now they might start downplaying the arrogance a notch... looks like their "subjects" are making it go out of style fast anyway.

Fuck 'em all, right in the ear.

What's next? Backstreet Boys playing a multi-million dollar show at Osama's secret cave? Not yet, but give it time; people forget shit pretty easily when large sums of money change hands.

And when the dick-wad at the helm of Libya is overthrown, I hope that he actually gets exiled.....to Lockerbie, Scotland.

Canada has apologized for Terry Jacks on multiple occasions; there's no need to keep reminding us of the treacle laced "Seasons In the Sun"....we're sorry, okay? I mean, hell; at least when he played with Susan, she was a bit of a looker and all.... :vuvu:

Moving on.

She can blow me too, but it would have to be for less than a million, since my bank account is a little light at the moment.

If the west, especially The United States of America, would cut down dramatically on it's usage of middle eastern oil the problem of middle eastern dictators would go away. Without oil revenue, those dictators might still have power but they wouldn't have OUR money (http://www.eia.doe.gov/pub/oil_gas/petroleum/data_publications/company_level_imports/current/import.html).

You don't really think that much of the oil Americans use comes from over there do you?

Less oil usage period is the solution... not just whose oil.

FYI... Canada and Mexico are the biggest, by good margin, non-domestic oil suppliers to the US. Venezuela, Saudi, Colombia and Nigeria usually round out the top six with Libya in and out of the latter group.

That is the case in recent years. The past shows something different though…

In a nutshell.

There are a lot of funny ideas around about oil (and by "funny", I don't mean I'm laughing).


A Saudi saying I read some time back:

"My father rode a camel. I drive a car. My son flies a jet airplane. His son will ride a camel."

This isn't a joke.

Somehow I think Aardy's fantasy of Mariah waxing his willie isn't ENTIRELY driven by political and ethical motive.

Just a hunch.

That way, a single well-placed guided missile or tactical nuke would solve a lot of problems. :D

You forget, though, that it would most likely not be a single "well-placed" missile. In fact, cleansing the world of the Backstreet Boys would probably require a long, protracted occupation, spanning multiple US administrations, and costing untold hundreds of millions of dollars borrowed from China.

I'm guessing you'd want Nelly Furtado to blow you too then...afterall she is a good Canadian girl. :wink:


Canadian pop singer Nelly Furtado says she was paid $1 million to perform for members of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's "clan" in 2007, but she now intends to donate the money to charity.

While other stars who reportedly performed for Gadhafi's family have kept mum, Furtado volunteered the information about her performance on Twitter.

"In 2007, I received 1million$ from the (Gadhafi) clan to perform a 45 min. Show for guests at a hotel in Italy," she wrote on Monday. "I am going to donate the $."

Beyonce and Usher reportedly performed at a New Year's Eve party for Gadhafi's son Muatassim on the Caribbean island of St. Barts, while R&B singer Mariah Carey was hired to sing at a previous New Year's bash.

Tim

Oh yes.... fine with that.:vuvu:

She certainly has fallen off the map lately but nice too see her 'fess up and repay the money (we will need to see a receipt though).


Turns out there plenty more where she and the others come from and It will be interesting to see who else cops a plea and pays back the dosh.
