    Go here to read a Tweet from pop star Nelly Furtado, who said she received a chunk of change from the Qaddafi family in order to perform. Yikes. With all the drama surrounding the Libyian dictator, Furtado is doing the right thing by giving the dough back.

    Below is the singer's Twitter post: "In 2007, I received 1million$ from the Qaddafi clan to perform a 45 min. Show for guests at a hotel in Italy. I am going to donate the $."

    What is your take on Furtado's plan to donate the cash?
