Whore du jour

Jennifer Lopez is reportedly set to perform at the birthday for the leader of an authoritarian regime in Turkmenistan, sez The Hollywood Reporter.

According to Human Rights Watch, “The country remains closed to independent scrutiny, media and religious freedoms are subject to draconian restrictions, and human rights defenders face constant threat of government reprisal. The United Nations Committee against Torture expressed concern about allegations of widespread torture and ill-treatment, and of enforced disappearances in custody.

Lopez is not the only celebrity to whore themselves out to notorious despots. A few years ago Beyonce, Usher and Mariah Carey headlined one of the Gadaffi boys’ birthday party.
