Ever Wonder How Much It Costs To Hire Beyonce? Apparently Gaddafi Knows.

Beyonce-single-ladies Ever wonder what Colonel Gaddafi buys as a gift for his security advisor, the one who also happens to be his son? You know, the son who also tried to organize a coup attempt against him. Well I guess it's a private concert with Beyonce -- because obviously he's too good for an iTunes gift certificate.

The media has pictures of Beyonce performing at a private New Year's party for Muatsim, one of the sons of the Libyan dictator Gaddafi (some say Kadhafi - sing it with me), and daddy foot the entertainment bill.

Muammar_al-Gaddafi Apparently Beyonce has a price, one that can be paid by just about anyone. Anyone including a dictator who admitted to ordering a US commercial airliner to be shot down. I don't care if he's a snappy dresser, formerly good looking, and is blowing kisses at the West in recent years, he's still Colonel Gaddafi.

So just what was that magic money number for Beyonce? Two million is what the papers are saying.

This end of year party reportedly included celebrity guests like Bon Jovi, Usher, and Jay-Z, and took place on St Barts in the Caribbean which sounds really nice to me (says the woman who had icicles on her nose the same night.)

And Beyonce wore her Single Ladies leotard with what always reminds me tap shoes and Hooter's waitress sparkled flesh coloured tights. But I will reserve commenting on how she looked in her outfit because I commend her rocking those curves and I also know that Beyonce can be fashion challenged.

Oh the conflict I feel about talking about her outfit. I wonder if she went through any conflicting thoughts when trying to decide to take this gig?

Anyhow, every single photo of the gift recipient Muatsim looked like he was thoroughly unimpressed or smelling farts. So I'm not sure he actually liked his gift or the guests were heavy into the bean dip. Gee, I hope Colonel Gaddafi got a gift receipt just in case.

Also I hope that Beyonce might feel just more than a bit dirty about taking money from this kind of customer. I know tons of celebrities do this kind of private party thing all the time, and power to them, but doing it for dictators? Ugh. But I guess it's hard to feel where the dirt comes from when counting out all those millions.

If someone offered ME, Snarky Amber, $2M dollars to perform, I'd probably perform for Hitler. But I am very poor. Beyonce made $87M last year. She can afford to have some scruples.

@SnarkyAmber Now I can't stop picturing you in one of those WWII burlesque Nazi uniforms with only suspenders covering your ladies and you look really cute. And yes, you'd think she would just be able to say no but I think somebody is being all greedy gus.

@mouthy_broad 'anti-american idiot airhead' sounds like it should be Avril Lavignes next single.

Treason is:

a crime that undermines the offender's government.

Disloyalty by virtue of subversive behavior treachery, or an act of deliberate betrayal.


Performing for Qaddafhi isn't a crime, and it is neither subversive, treacherous, nor it is it a betrayal.

It's just stupid, and doesn't pass the treason test.

motherbumper


@Gunfighter - True dat. It also doesn't pass the "can I sleep at night after selling myself to anyone who will pay?" test. She either lives with her head in the sand, is completely ignorant, or just doesn't care. None of those are very attractive options.

Eh, she won't always have the looks so why not stock up on the money while she can?
