FILE - This April 25, 2014 file photo shows singer Rihanna watching Game 3 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors in New York. CBS said Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014 it was permanently editing a song featuring Rihanna's voice out of its Thursday night NFL telecasts _ after the singer issued a profane tweet about it. A portion of Jay-Z's "Run This Town" featuring Rihanna was cut out of last Thursday's game because the network was covering the controversy over Rice's assault of his then-fiancee. CBS had planned to use the song Thursday and for the rest of the season, but Rihanna tweeted her objections. CBS issued a statement saying that it was "moving in a different direction" with different theme music. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II, File)
