Nelly Furtado, Mariah Carey, Usher and Beyonce have all performed for family members of the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Each was paid some astronomical amount of money for a short performance. Now that the Libyan people are rising up against their dictator, and Gaddafi has responded with violence, these celebs who have taken his money are being pressured to do something good with it. Nelly Furtado is the first to come forward.

She tweeted: “In 2007, I received $1 million from the Qaddafi clan to perform a 45 min. Show for guests at a hotel in Italy. I am going to donate the $”

People.com reported that Mariah Carey also received $1 million dollars. Usher and Beyonce entertained the tyrant for an undisclosed sum.

So far over 1,000 Libyans have been killed from the recent violence. Gaddafi’s response to the people’s demands has been to refuse to step down. He said, “I am not going to leave this land, and I will die here as a martyr.”
