Berlusconi Hires Brazilian Lap Dancers

He’s still got it! The Brazilian press is reporting that Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi hired a troupe of lap dancers on his recent trip to the country. The Telegraph says the women were paid upward of $1,200 and promised roles on Italian television. Berlusconi’s office admits to hiring entertainment, but says the performances were a “typically Brazilian folklore spectacle.”
