Jennifer Lopez sang "Happy Birthday" to the leader of the former Soviet bloc country Turkmenistan during a show on Saturday night, but her representative said Lopez wouldn't have performed there at all if she had known there were human rights issues in the country.

People reports in a statement released Sunday by her publicist to the Associated Press said the event was hosted by the China National Petroleum Corp. and wasn't a political event. However it is being seen has a slap in the face to many in the country.
