Jennifer Lopez apologizes for Turkmenistan performance

Jennifer Lopez apologized Monday for singing Happy Birthday to a dictator.

Her publicist said in a statement that Lopez wouldn’t have performed for Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, the  president of Turkmenistan, had she known the country violated many basic human rights.

She sang to Berdimuhamedow during a concert on Saturday.

The concert was hosted by the China National Petroleum Corporation and it wasn’t considered a political event.
