When CBS pulled Rihanna’s NFL intro to its first-ever Thursday Night Football telecast last week, it was a questionable but more or less accepted move.

Some felt it was unfair to punish Rihanna, a domestic violence survivor, but given the astonishing Ray Rice video and controversy, CBS nixed her intro.

Now that they want to slide her music back in this week, however? Well, there's at least one individual who seems pretty unhappy with the decision:

Rihanna NFL Tweet

Last week, CBS said playing a pop song didn’t fit with the serious tone of its hour-long pregame show, almost half of which was dedicated to Rice.

The first 25 minutes focused exclusively on the player's release by the Baltimore Ravens, who were playing that night, and indefinite suspension.

In the aftermath of the video of him striking his now-wife Janay Palmer, the pregame show coverage included a plea by James Brown to stop domestic violence.

“We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we had to have the appropriate tone and coverage,” CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said.

CBS made a last-minute decision to drop Rihanna from performing during last night’s Ravens-Steelers NFL pregame show, leading fans to note the obvious irony.

Instead of a performance featuring the singer, the network instead aired commentary about Ray Rice, the disgraced former Baltimore running back.

The video of Rice knocking out Janay Palmer which surfaced this week led to his release and indefinite suspension, while embroiling the NFL in controversy.

Rihanna, of course, can feel Palmer's pain, and like Rice's now-wife, famously took back her abuser romantically even after he pummeled her brutally.

She and Chris Brown have broken up a second time, but it's impossible not to note the parallels, and the incongruence of Rihanna getting nixed by CBS.

The league is facing major backlash for failing to take harsher action against Ray, initially suspending him for just two games before this video leaked.

Some have speculated that they saw this video prior to this week, or that the powers that be didn't try too hard to track it down. Either way, the NFL looks terrible.

It's only been one day since nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence appeared online signaling the start of a scandal that would eventually result in hundreds of racy photos of female celebs going public.

In that time, some of the alleged hacking victims have denied the photos are authentic, while others have admitted they were caught with their pants down and vowed legal vengeance.

Stars both male and female have spoken out against the invasion of privacy. Lena Dunham even slammed the hacker as a "sex offender."

All in al,l the whole incident has taught us some valuable lessons about carefully guarding our private images and - more importantly - reminded us of the importance of respecting the sanctity of each other's hard drives.

And it's taught us some other things as well:

Jennifer Lawrence Loves Selfies
J-Law really loves posing for nude selfies. Unfortunately for her, someone broke into her private collection.

For example, who knew that Jennifer Lawrence takes more selfies than Kylie and Kendall Jenner combined?

It's the scandal that's threatening to bring down the Internet:

Some loser hacker has broken into the cell phones and computers of famous women throughout Hollywood, posting photos of Jennifer Lawrence nude and Kaley Cuoco nude online and causing many to wonder:

Who might be next?

Whoever it is, a handful of females (and, yes, also one male) can relate, considering naked picture scandals have been in existence for nearly as long as the Internet itself.

Who has been victimized in the past? Who possibly played the victim while riding her bare attention to new levels of fame? And who would you never want to see in her birthday suit ever again?

If you're reading this, Jennifer, Kaley and the others whose privacy has been wrongly invaded by this pervert on 4chan, perhaps this is a bit of solace: You are not alone...

Demi Lovato
Photos of Demi Lovato in bed with Wilmer Valderrama went viral in the spring of 2014. Some were pretty darn racy.

If you're not sitting down, you may want to do so before we break this shocking news:

Rihanna loves weed.

We know it changes everything you thought you knew about the squeaky-clean songbird responsible for such family friendly jams as "S&M" and "Pour It Up," but it's true. She even posted video evidence online over the weekend:

Yes, while the rest of us were sucking down beers at lame backyard barbecues, RiRi celebrated Labor Day by laboring to roll a bunch of blunts on a yacht, which we're assuming is pretty challenging.

But while it may have been a holiday weekend, Rihanna certainly doesn't need a special occasion to get blazed:

Odd behavior is sort of a hallmark of being famous. We've come to expect some celebrities to pull ridiculous stunts in the name of art or self-promotion.

When Shia LaBeouf wears a paper bag on his head, we tip our heads to the side and tap our chins and go "hmmm..." and wait for answers.

When James Franco hits on an 18 year old on Instagram, we accuse him of being a dirty old man and then realize that's exactly what happens in his newest flick, label it a publicity stunt, and move on to the next scandal.

But then there are our pop stars and the Twitter users who love and loathe them who ask questions that really make us think ..

Why Does Lady Gaga Look Like a Hash Brown?
Good question, @luisspears. Very good question indeed.

Too bad the only answers we can really come up with for these 23 questions for pop stars which cannot actually be answered are "because" and "drugs, of course."

But there's really no way to explain Miley Cyrus' right knee.

An anti-smoking PSA, created by The Legacy Foundation’s Truth initiative, aired last night during the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.

Depicting numerous A-Listers lighting up, the spot says these stars are giving “big tobacco tons of free marketing” and goes on to label such celebrities as Rihanna, Robert Pattinson and Lady Gaga as “unpaid tobacco” spokespeople.

"They’re the new face of big tobacco, and they don’t even know it,” reads the video.

Is this a fair label? Because young fans are clearly influenced by the actions of actors, actresses and singers?

Or is it foul for the PSA to call out stars who are typically only seen smoking because the paparazzi stalk their every move?

The PSA also does leave out the most famous smoker of all: President Barack Obama.

Say what you will about Rihanna, the girl certainly does her part to keep Twitter interesting. 

Sometimes she smokes massive World Cup blunts. Sometimes she makes ill-advised forays into international politics.

The only constant is that we never know what's gonna come next. Fortunately, it frequently involves her lady bits.

Rihanna on the Twitter

Take, for example, a photo that RiRi tweeted earlier today. Is it social commentary? Performance art? A selfie gone horribly wrong?

We're not sure, but we know that it certainly looks like a picture of Rihanna grabbing her own vagina:

Last month, Rihanna and Drake broke up, following a blink-and-you-missed it relationship that seemed to have quite an impact on the Canadian rapper crooner. 

Though they were only romantically linked for a few weeks, rumor has it that Drake was "too in love" with Rihanna and scared her off - no easy feat with a woman who once dated Chris Brown.

  • Rihanna Paparazzi Image

Aubrey is a sensitive soul, of course, and he seemed to struggle in the wake of the breakup, at one point even comparing Rihanna to satan.

But then one day it seemed that Drizzy woke up and said to himself, "#YOLO." He start clubbing and getting lap dances from Nicki Minaj again. Rihanna was finally gone from his heart and mind. Until last night:

Yes, Drizzy and Rih were spotted entering and leaving an NYC club together, and according to reports, they're back on.

When it comes to that miscreant Justin Bieber, neither Canada nor the United States seems to want the kid, if Olympic hockey billboards are to be believed.

He's Canadian, just for the record. Sorry, you're not perfect after all, Canada.

Other famous faces, however, actually bring honor and pride to their countries of birth, so much so that America would gladly claim them for her own.

Many stars born elsewhere who work primarily in the U.S. seek dual citizenship, and that's actually pretty neat if you think about it. They love us! They really love us!

They seem as American as apple pie, but plenty of your favorite stars weren't born here at all. See 29 examples below ... and you'll never believe #29:

Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman, nee Natalie Hershlag, was born in Jerusalem in 1981. She has dual citizenship in the United States and Israel.

Rihanna Quotes

I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.

Rihanna [on rumors that she dated Jay-Z]

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
