In 2010 Beyonce Performed for a Gaddafi and Nobody Really Cared

But that was then. This is now.
Hannibal Gaddafi put a ring on it.
To be fair, both the Guardian and Huffington Post and a few blogs ran stories about the 2010 New Year's Eve party held by Gaddafi's scion in St. Barts. Beyonce entertained for $2m and JayZ came along for the ride. Other stars were also mentioned. Russell Simmons tweeted about it. The year before Mariah Carey performed for $1m. The story never made it out of the gossip ghetto. Why? Did the entire MSM help Western governments conspire to rehabilitate Gaddafi as a kind of bulwark against Al Qaeda and Iran?

I don't recall any of the Left's serious organs of censure piping up at the time either. Now, of course, the cable news networks and national newspapers are falling all over themselves to point fingers at the oblivious, but very rich, stars. Suddenly it makes great copy.
