'Stand Your Ground' Florida Boycott List Naming Rihanna, Kanye West, Jay Z Refuted

Stevie Wonder might be the only man who's still boycotting Florida after all.

As Celebuzz previously reported, American Urban Radio Network White House correspondent April Ryan leaked a list of A-list musicians -- including Rihanna, Kanye West and Madonna -- allegedly boycotting the sunshine State in protest of its "Stand Your Ground" law in the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal for the 2012 killing of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

On Tuesday, Ryan updated her original story saying "several representatives of the artists named who say, on behalf of their clients, they are uncomfortable being identified on that list," refuting the claims that the named celebrities are stopping their performances in Florida.

"The list including her name was surprising," a source close to Alicia Keys, whose name was also on the roster, told us. "We are not aware of any boycott."

In similar fashion, listed artists Jay Z and Timberlake are still slated to perform at Miami's Sun Life Stadium on August 13.

Celebuzz has reached out to all the named musicians for comments and is currently awaiting for replies.

    When you grow up, April Ryan, you'll know to check your sources and verify the information you are spoon fed. Then you can be a real journalist!
