Tripoli Travel Guide
America's very own Lionel "Do It to Me One More Time" Richie sang for an adoring Libyan audience in front of the wrecked home of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on Saturday, as part of a concert to mark the 20th anniversary of a U.S. raid on the North African country. Nothing marks the anniversary of bombing better than the dulcet tones of soothing R&B.
Spanish tenor Jose Carreras (he's the other tenor, remember?) performed with Lionel, who apparently got it on with the crowd and cried, "Libya I love you, I'll be back!" No word on whether he sang the ultimate crowd pleaser, "Dancin' on the Ceiling", although we're sure it would have been a hit. Shockingly, Nicole Richie was no where to be found. There's just something about Libya that doesn't sound quite as glam as Vegas...
