Mariah Carey Returning Gaddafi Money

Along with a handful of other performers, Mariah Carey is returning the money she received for performing for Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Nelly Furtado and Beyonce also performed for Gaddafi's family and are returning the payments they received.

Gadaffi said of the incident, "There's nothing I enjoy more than murdering thousands of infidels and then listening to Nelly Furtado's 'I am Like Bird'."

The dictator is currently being investigated for war crimes, and is accused of ordering the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103 in Scotland.

Carey said she was "naïve and unaware" of who she was scheduled to perform for.

"I feel horrible and embarrassed to have participated in this mess." But for that last part, she might have been talking about "Glitter".

Over a thousand Libyan protesters have been killed since early February. Gaddafi has been in power for over 40 years, and the Obama administration is urging him to step down.
