Nelly Furtado Is Donating Her Qadaffi Money to Charity

Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Usher, and 50 Cent have come under fire for the times they played private shows for family members of Muammar Qaddafi, though so far they've stayed mum on the issue. However, the guilt has overwhelmed Nelly Furtado: "In 2007, I received 1million from the Qaddafi clan to perform a 45 min. Show for guests at a hotel in Italy," she confessed over Twitter. "I am going to donate the $." Still, nothing will ever erase the look on Qadaffi's face as he watched her perform "Maneater," we'd imagine. [RS]
