At a concert in honor of the birthday of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov in 2013, pop star Jennifer Lopez performed , receiving a record fee of $ 1.5 million for this. Three months later, the artist admitted that her concert for a politician with such a controversial reputation was a mistake. As soon as it became known that Lopez would come to Turkmenistan with an exclusive concert, many foreign human rights activists sharply criticized this act. Representatives of the organization Human Rights Watch said then that Ms. Lopez "is free to choose which dictators she will act for to earn money, but one should not think that this will not affect her reputation in any way."
