The Daily Beast: Stars Who Perform for Dictators

9 of 10

Mariah Carey and Mutassim Gadhafi

In 2009, Western media reported that Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, a son of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, had paid Mariah Carey $1 million to sing just four songs at his New Year's bash in St. Bart's. Gadhafi petulantly denied the reports in the state newspaper he controlled, blaming the big spending on his younger brother, Mutassim. As the Gadhafis' father scrambles to suppress a growing revolution, a cable released by WikiLeaks has revealed the sons' spending—including Mutassim's demands for $1.2 billion to build a personal militia and, sure enough, a big payout to Mariah. Jay-Z is rumored to to have joined Carey on the dictators' stage.
