Rihanna, Jay Z, Kanye West Join Stevie Wonder’s Florida Boycott Following George Zimmerman Verdict: Report

14 Aug

UPDATE: New information have come to light that many artists named in the list are not part of or have never heard of the boycott. More information on the matter could be found here in Celebuzz’s coverage.

Florida concert ticket sales may be plummeting soon.

Performers such as Rihanna, Jay-Z Jay Z, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake and Madonna have reportedly decided to follow Stevie Wonder’s footsteps in boycotting Florida in protest of the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law. April Ryan of American Urban Radio Network first broke the news, crediting “a source close to Wonder” for leaking a list of A-listers who’ve vowed to not perform at the Sunshine State in the wake of George Zimmerman‘s acquittal for the 2012 killing of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

Wonder earlier announced his intention to boycott any state with “Stand Your Ground” laws after a jury found Zimmerman – who police did not arrest weeks after the killing due to the law – not guilty of second-degree murder. The “Stand Your Ground” defense also appeared in instructions to jurors during the trial.

“I decided today that until the Stand Your Ground law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again,” Wonder said during a concert in Canada earlier this month. “As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world.”

According to Ryan, other notable celebs on the boycott list include Usher, Alicia Keys, The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and will.i.am.

Jay Z and his wife, Beyonce, also showed their support for Martin, appearing at a recent rally in New York City to support the slain teenager’s family.

MADONNA Recreates “Sex” Book Cover For “Truth Or Dare: Naked” Fragrance Ad (PHOTOS)

22 Nov

Celebrity news reports that MADONNA has recreated her “Sex” book cover for the new ad for her new fragrance, “Truth or Dare: Naked.”

Madonna will be launching a similarly-titled new fragrance for women called “Truth or Dare by Madonna Naked” (seriously) in December and naturally, the 54-year-old pop star stripped naked for its new campaign ad.

And if you thought it looked awfully familiar, you weren’t mistaken.

The black-and-white fragrance ad, which features the Queen of Pop completely topless and posing provocatively with her arm over her head, was inspired by her racy coffee table book, “Sex,” from 20 years ago… just without the panties and nipple pasties.

Obviously, she hasn’t changed much since then.

What do you think of Madonna‘s new fragrance ad?
