HOLD ON....THIS JUST GOT REAL!!
Last week, STEVIE WONDER announced that he's boycotting Florida . . . and any other state with a Stand Your Ground law. And now, this may become a TREND.
A so-called "source close to Stevie Wonder" has released a list of artists who are supposedly joining the boycott . . . and it includes some BIG names.
They are: The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Usher, Justin Timberlake, R. Kelly, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Jay-Z,Kanye West, Trey Songz, Young Jeezy, Wale and Rod Stewart - wait, doesn't he LIVE here?
Others include: Patti LaBelle, Mary J. Blige, Joe, Will.I.Am, Keyshia Cole, Erykah Badu and Parliament.
There's no official word on any of this. For now, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z still have a concert scheduled for August 16th in Miami Gardens. And another "source" denies that Rihanna is onboard.
A lot of people blame Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law for contributing to GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’S acquittal in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Believe it or not, O.J. Simpson doesn not need "Anger Management"
O.J. SIMPSON is NOT in talks to join CHARLIE SHEEN'S FX sitcom, "Anger Management", despite what his people would have you believe.
Norman Pardo . . . O.J.'s so-called "promoter" . . . told the "New York Post" that he's pitched the idea to FX . . . and he said someone there told him, quote, "'Anger Management' with O.J. Simpson? That would be a perfect fit!"
Pardo added, quote, "O.J. would play a thinly veiled version of himself: A famous con who's pissed off about being unjustly incarcerated."
But a source from the network says this is NEVER going to happen.
Of course, one of the main obstacles is the fact that THE JUICE IS NOT LOOSE. O.J. is only five years into his 33-year sentence at a Nevada prison, and has four more years before he's even eligible for parole.
