Celebrities Making An Appearance On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

This would have been a really cool thing…

Back in April, the city of Baltimore was experiencing protest in the wake of Freddie Gray‘s death at the hands of city police officers. Lots of celebs rallied via social media, but Rihanna wanted to hold a free concert for the city of Baltimore, and even walk with protesters!

Emails between RiRi’s rep and the Baltimore police indicate that the 27-year-old tried to get extra police security at the request of the governor’s office, but a separate email chain between the former police commissioner and the mayor’s rep suggested that it got shut down because “police are claiming they have no permit so it will not be allowed.”

That’s a bummer.

C’mon, police- can’t you give your city a bit of levity? Or maybe they just don’t dig Riri’s music…
