Rihanna dropped from NFL opening sequence...

Life sucks, especially when you are being penalised for something that was beyond your control. Rihanna's opening sequence featuring Jay Z's hit song 'Run This Town' was dropped from the debut NFL game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens last night. 

Her opening sequence would have been customized for each week's game. However, Rihanna was dropped because a shocking video emerged this week of ex-Ravens star Ray Rice knocking out his now-wife Janay unconscious in an elevator earlier this year.

Rihanna was once a victim of domestic violence at the hands of then boyfriend Chris Brown and TMZ claims CBS didn't want to feature another celebrity who was involved in a high-profile domestic violence incident. The fact that Rihanna is being punished for being a victim of domestic violence is disgusting. Shame on the NFL! 

I take it this means she may not be asked to perform at next year's Super Bowl? Seeing as though they would have wanted her to PAY to perform, I think Rihanna has had a lucky escape.
