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.
