Rihanna Pulled the Plug on Thursday Night Football Song Herself

Rihanna‘s team is now saying that it wasn’t CBS’ decision to get a new song for Thursday night football — it was hers.

The 26-year-old singer recently lashed out at the NFL and CBS after they pulled her song before the Ravens vs Steeler’s game last Thursday.

Rihanna’s rep told TMZ: “Due to the misuse and misrepresentation of Rihanna‘s name and participation in connection to CBS TNF, CBS was not allowed to license and utilize the song “Run This Town.” Roc Nation made the decision to not grant the song’s usage.”

CBS does not seem happy that Rihanna lashed out at them on Twitter earlier today – they just cut her permanently from the Thursday Night Football intro.

“Beginning this Thursday, we will be moving in a different direction with some elements of our Thursday Night Football open,” CBS Sports said in a statement. “We will be using our newly created ‘Thursday Night Football’ theme music to open our game broadcast.”

Rihanna Slams CBS For Pulling Her Song From Thursday Night Football Intro

Rihanna is not happy with CBS after they pulled her Thursday Night Football song intro – she just blasted the network on Twitter.

“CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F*ck you! Y’all are sad for penalizing me for this.” the 26-year-old entertainer wrote on her Twitter account this morning. “The audacity…”

CBS originally had pulled the song because they felt they needed to address Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice‘s domestic violence. Fans didn’t think it was appropriate for Rihanna to be associated with last week’s game because the Ravens were playing and she is a victim of domestic violence herself.

Rihanna's Style Gets Praised by Designer Jeremy Scott

Rihanna makes a colorful statement in her pink jacket while stepping out for dinner on Thursday night (September 11) in New York City.

The 26-year-old singer is in town for fashion week, which came to a close that evening.

Unfortunately, RiRi had to miss her friend Jeremy Scott‘s show the day before due to a prior commitment, but he still had some praise for the singer.

“She can appear in so many different styles and make it feel authentic,” Jeremy told the New York Times. “She can wear something conservative from one designer and make it cooler, or she can take something from my Adidas collection and make it look sexy and feminine when it’s a men’s item.”

Rihanna's Song Pulled from CBS Thursday Night Football Intro

Rihanna was previously announced as the new artist to be featured in the CBS Thursday Night Football intro, but her song won’t be part of tonight’s first airing of the season.

The 26-year-old singer’s song “Run This Town” with Jay Z was set to kick off the evening alongside a comedic segment featuring Don Cheadle doing a narration. Instead, tonight’s airing will feature a discussion of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell‘s comments on the Ray Rice scandal.

“We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we needed to have the appropriate tone coverage,” CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said in a statement.

Tonight’s game features the Baltimore Ravens, the team Ray Rice used to play for, and fans didn’t think it was appropriate for Rihanna to be associated with the game as she is a victim of domestic violence herself.
