Nelly Furtado to give away $1 million Qaddafi fee
Qaddafi has been condemned for using violence to quell a popular uprising, with the death toll from nearly two weeks of fighting estimated by diplomats at about 2,000.
Furtado, a Canadian singer whose hits include “I’m Like a Bird” and “Promiscuous,” used Twitter to disclose her plans for the $1 million.
“In 2007, I received 1 million$ from the Qaddafi clan to perform a 45 min. Show for guests at a hotel in Italy,” she wrote on Twitter. “I am going to donate the $”
