Mariah Carey is under fire amid reports that she was paid $1 million last weekend to perform for Angolan President Jose Eduardo Dos Santos, who has been labeled a dictator by human rights groups.

Dos Santos is accused of ordering executions of his political opponents and journalists and exploiting the impoverished country's resources.

“Mariah Carey can’t seem to get enough dictator cash, reportedly more than $1 million this time," said the Human Rights Foundation's Thor Halvorssen, according to Reuters.

"It is the sad spectacle of an international artist purchased by a ruthless police state to entertain and whitewash the father-daughter kleptocracy that has amassed billions in ill-gotten wealth while the majority of Angola lives on less than $2 a day,” he continued.

Angola's state news agency reported that the concert raised $65,000 for the Red Cross.

Carey came under fire in 2009 for performing for Libyan leader Col. Muammar Qaddafi, and later expressed regret about the decision.
