Mariah Carey Makes $1 Million In Money Allegedly From Dictator
"Hi Angola, I'm about to jump on a plane. I'll be there this weekend and I can't wait to see you (kiss)."
That sexy message from Mariah Carey to the dictatorship of Angola is landing the diva in hot water. She posted it on her website just before heading out to the African nation of Angola to give a two hour concert for the Angolan Red Cross. Carey even earned a reported $1 million for the performance. So, what's the big deal?
Turns out, that the daughter of the notorious dictator of Angola is the president of the Angolan Red Cross. The Human Rights Foundation says Carey should have stayed home.
"Mariah Carey can't seem to get enough dictator cash...It is the sad spectacle of an international artist purchased by a ruthless police state," says the Human Rights Foundation.
The organization also accuses the dictator of amassing, "...billions in ill-gotten wealth while the majority of Angola lives on less than $2 a day."
You may recall that five years ago, Carey was also slammed for taking big bucks to sing in private for the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi and his family.
So far, no comment from Mariah Carey.
