Me, Myself And Hannibal: Beyonce does a Gadaffi Gig

Surely the problem with Beyonce taking two million dollars to play a private gig for Hannibal Gadaffi (son of the more infamous Muammar) is less that she's playing a date for Libya - only three people in the world still believe that Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi was responsible for the Lockerbie bomb - but more about how grasping it looks.

Seriously, Beyonce, you're really up for sale like that? Doesn't the shine rub off stars when they behave like they're taxi cabs or showbiz tat for sale on eBay?

It turns out that two million doesn't even guarantee total exclusivity - a bit of the date has turned up on YouTube. Do you suppose that Beyonce's skintight PVC outfit was part of the deal?
