First of all, shame on me for my lack of geographical knowledge of what happened after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. When I read the JLo headline, I thought someone had straight out invented the name of a country. Jennifer Lopez gave a private performance to commemorate the birthday of the President of Turkmenistan, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. People are all like: "Jenni, how can you possibly go and take cash from a bad man, known for his disregard human rights abuses in his country?" He's known for "extreme censorship, ethnic repression, utilizing torture etc. Human Rights Watch considers Turkmenistan's gov one of the most repressive in the world."
