Did you know that the Rolling Stones, Rihanna and Justin Timberlake were joining Stevie Wonder in boycotting Florida over the state’s “stand your ground” law? Neither did they:

The American Urban Radio Network’s April Ryan reported Monday that a source close to Wonder told her that top artists, including Usher, Timberlake, Jay Z and Kanye West, were joining the legendary singer-songwriter in boycotting the state following the George Zimmerman verdict.

Other acts reportedly boycotting the state included the Rolling Stones, Rihanna, and Madonna.
[…]
Mother Jones reached out to representatives for some of the artists, who reported that they were unaware of the reported boycott movement.

A source with knowledge of the situation told the magazine that Rihanna was not joining the reported boycott, and a spokesperson for the Rolling Stones said “nobody’s heard anything about this.”

And organizers of an Aug. 16 concert in Miami say that Jay Z and Justin Timberlake both still plan to perform, according to a television station there.

As long as Florida’s money spends the same as it does everywhere else, we’re unlikely to see this boycott spread too far in the entertainment community.
