Beyonce Donated Gaddafi Money To Haiti


We were afraid we wouldn’t be able to get bodied with a clear conscience after Wikileaks revealed that Gaddafi paid for concerts by huge artists like Beyonce, but luckily we just found out that BeyoncĂ© donated her Gaddafi money to Haiti. “All monies paid to BeyoncĂ© 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,” Beyonce’s rep Yvette Noel-Schure told The Huffington Post. “Once it became known that the third party promoter was linked to the Gaddafi family, the decision was made to put that payment to a good cause.” Girl, we can see your halo. Not that donating a dictator’s millions automatically gets you a halo, but you know. It’s a step in the right direction.

Reports of various superstars such as Usher, Mariah Carey and B herself playing for the Gaddafi family came to light after Nelly Furtado tweeted that she’d donate her money to charity. At least we can be sure that’s a huge chunk of change that won’t end up in Gaddafi’s bank account. Or sitting unused with the other millions in Beyonce’s.
