Singer Mariah Carey plans to donate the proceeds from her new song Save the Day to human rights issues but says she is embarrassed she performed for Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2006.
Carey said that she performed for the family of Gaddafi, who has ruled Libya for 40 years, and is now facing a revolt, at a party in the Caribbean. She has promised to be careful about who she works for in future. “I was naive and unaware of who I was booked to perform for. I feel horrible and embarrassed,” contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
