‘Stand Your Ground’ Florida Boycott List Naming Rihanna, Kanye West, Jay Z Refuted

28 Jun

Stevie Wonder might be the only man who’s still boycotting Florida after all.

As Celebuzz previously reported, American Urban Radio Network White House correspondent April Ryan leaked a list of A-list musicians – including Rihanna, Kanye West and Madonna – allegedly boycotting the sunshine State in protest of its “Stand Your Ground” law in the wake of George Zimmerman‘s acquittal for the 2012 killing of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

On Tuesday, Ryan updated her original story saying “several representatives of the artists named who say, on behalf of their clients, they are uncomfortable being identified on that list,” refuting the claims that the named celebrities are stopping their performances in Florida.

“The list including her name was surprising,” a source close to Alicia Keys, whose name was also on the roster, told us. “We are not aware of any boycott.”

In similar fashion, listed artists Jay Z and Timberlake are still slated to perform at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium on August 13.

Celebuzz has reached out to all the named musicians for comments and is currently awaiting for replies.

Cara Delevingne Has A Willy-Nilly Wakeboarding Adventure & Almost Loses Her Bikini Bottoms!!

14 Jan

She may ooze grace and confidence on a catwalk, but not on a wakeboard!!

Cara Delevingne continued to enjoy her holiday in Barbados yesterday when she and some of her fam decided to try wakeboarding.

Luckily, Miz Delevingne’s reaction time was quick enough to pull her suit back up before that happened.

Rihanna Wears Jeweled Bikini, Smokes Blunt and Boozes at Barbados Festival

7 Nov

Bikinis, booze and blunts – it’s all in a day for Rihanna.

The singer wrapped a wild weekend celebrating her native Barbardos at its annual Crop Over festival with one final hurrah on Monday. Barely covered up in a jeweled bikini costume, Rihanna took to the streets of the island’s capital Bridgetown for the traditional Grand Kadooment Day, Barbardos’ version of Carnival where bands bump Barbadian rhythms and fireworks light up the sky.

After making the pilgrimage back to her homeland for Crop Over on Friday, Rihanna wasted no time, diving into festivities with the Foreday Morning Jam event, where she partied with her gal pals until the wee hours of Saturday morning. Wearing a white monokini with silver panels, Rihanna twerked in the streets, tossed back drinks and lit up some Mary Jane – all caught on camera by her friend.

The night made for a rough morning:

Woke up in paint and a veil from partying in de street all morning!!! #Barbados #FOREDAYmorning CROP OVA almost here! #heauxm

– Rihanna (@rihanna) August 3, 2013

But just hours later, Rihanna was beachside for a photo shoot, somehow showing no signs of fatigue. “Glam starts NOW!!! New cover shoot today!” she tweeted. “I got a hustler spirit n-gga, PERIOD.”

It’s clear Rihanna’s motto is work hard, party harder.

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.
