[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]50 Cent[/lastfm] has finally decided to give the money he recieved from Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi. And like the other artist who was paid for a personal performance by him, will donate the money to charity.
According to my sources:
50 CENT has become the latest artist to apologize for accepting a big paycheck to perform for the family of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi in recent years. And he’s donating the cash to UNICEF to aid their relief efforts in Libya.
It’s still unclear how much Gaddafi money he pocketed, or how much he’ll be donating. But other artists banked $1 million for their performances. This closes the book on the KNOWN artists who have accepted money from the Gaddafi family.
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nelly Furtado[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beyoncé [/lastfm]and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Usher [/lastfm]have donated their fees to charity. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mariah Carey[/lastfm] said she was “embarrassed” that she took money from the Gaddafis, but didn’t commit to coughing up her dough.
I thinks it’s great that theses artist are stepping up and placing more focus on the problems over seas, and that they wanna help in anyway they can. As the we all feel the pain at the pumps? They may not feel it as bad as we do.
