...Is under fire.
According to recent reports:
American pop star Beyonce Knowles seems unable to remove herself from the Middle Eastern spotlight. The most recent incident was a private concert she gave for Libyan leader Colonel Muamar Gaddafi’s son Muatassim on New Year’s Eve. The private party has sparked some criticism for her performance.
According to reports, the private party took place at a nightclub on the island of St. Barts in the Caribbean and allegedly the American superstar was paid some $2 million for her appearance at the club, which also saw Usher, Lindsay Lohan and the young Gaddafi.
Speaking on CNN, Marc Lamont Hill, a Columbia University media professor, said “Beyonce’s handlers usually make really good decisions about where she’s going to perform.”
Her performance comes only months after much anger and frustration manifested itself in Egypt during her concert in the North African nation. Conservative Islamists condemned the performance, calling it a “sex party” and one that should not have been held. Despite the criticism, the concert went ahead in the Red Sea resort of Port Ghalib for some 20,000 fans, many of whom spent hundreds of dollars to see the American diva.
“So it seems to me that someone was asleep at the wheel, or the money was so overwhelming that they said: “Screw the public image, we’re going to take the cash,” added the professor.
Meanwhile, the dictator's son is still out searching for blondes and creating sex parties as he continue to celebrate the New Year....
