Beyoncé donated her Qaddafi money too!


With Nelly Furtado publicly announcing that she’d be getting rid of the money paid to her by Muammar ‘Batshit Insane Cape Guy‘ Qaddafi, Beyoncé has now come forward saying that she’s also donated the money given to her by Qaddafi once everyone figured out that he was an insane dictator who murders his own people.

All monies paid to Beyoncé for her performance at a private party at Nikki Beach St. Barts on New Year’s Eve 2009, including the commissions paid to her booking agency, were donated to the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, over a year ago. Once it became known that the third party promoter was linked to the Qaddafi family, the decision was made to put that payment to a good cause. SOURCE

So basically, all that money ended up going the The Bush-Clinton Haiti Fund, which I think we can all agree is a worthy cause. However, this still leaves Usher, Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie (Seriously? Him? Apparently, Gaddafi’s a murderer AND he has no taste in music), and considering that Usher couldn’t even stay off Twitter to help little kids in Africa who were dying of AIDS, chances are the only charity he’s donating that money is The Usher Is Great And Fuck All O’ Ya’ll Fund.
