For New Year's Eve, Vince Vaughn was in Chicago; Fergie and Josh Duhamel were in Las Vegas; Lady Gaga was in Miami. And Beyonce was -- performing for the son of Libyan dictator Moammar Kadafi?
We kid you not -- nor does Mediaite, in its detailed take on the singer's five-song performance at Nikki Beach in St. Barth's.
As pointed out by Mediaite, Moutassim Kadafi, aka Hannibal, has something in common with Charlie Sheen -- a Christmas visit from the cops.
More than a few folks think Beyonce's decision to play the "private party" wasn't cool at all. As Hot Air points out, the U.S. now recognizes Libya, but there are still, ahem, rough spots in the international relationship. Open arms for the Lockerbie bomber, anyone?
Given Beyonce and Jay-Z's means, you'd think that $2 million wouldn't speak quite so loudly. Maybe that Russian billionaire really rattled them.
Last New Year's Eve, Mariah Carey played a similar gig thrown by brother Saif Kadafi -- albeit for a cut-rate price of $1 million.
Also among those at the party? Jon Bon Jovi, Lindsay Lohan, BET founder Bob Johnson and Usher.
