The Daily Beast: Stars Who Perform for Dictators

8 of 10

Beyoncé, Usher and Hannibal Gadhafi

WikiLeaks cables revealed that not only did a Gadhafi son hold a secret New Year's Eve bash in St. Bart's in 2009, but that the Gadhafis repeated it the next year. This time, it was hosted by Hannibal, Moammar's fifth-oldest son, who hired Beyoncé and Usher to entertain guests. Reports varied on how much they were paid; the numbers ranged from six figures to $2 million. Beyoncé's appearance drew even more attention than Carey's had—and more criticism, because Hannibal had recently been in the news for beating his wife, and news had started leaking out that the Gadhafis' father had ordered a jetliner bombing that killed hundreds over Lockerbie, Scotland.
