After forty years of oil wealth and whacko political oppression, a dictator’s kids are entitled to a little indulgence and TLC from celebrities. Here’s what one of Muamar Gaddafi’s sons got for New Year’s Eve! According to NPR:
The stage is tiny. That’s the first thing you notice. In the video, you can see the singer dancing in a black leotard, strutting back and forth while she performs chart-topping songs. The audio is loud and distorted, taped through a camera phone or hand-held video recorder. This could be a particularly tight wedding band, or a shockingly good performance at a karaoke bar, but it’s not. The singer is actually Beyonce. The venue is an exclusive supper club in St. Barts, and the crowd is tiny, and just feet away from the singer. The man footing the bill for the whole affair? Hannibal Gadhafi, the son of the Libyan president.
