Katy Perry had some touching words for her fans at her New York City concert after the tragic shooting in Las Vegas. Check out what she told them.
After the horrible shooting on the Las Vegas Strip on October 1, which claimed the life of 59 people and injured more than 500, Americans everywhere are seeking solace.
During Katy’s concert at Madison Square Garden on Friday, October 1, the songstress called on her fans to come together to get through this devastating times we live in.
She also dedicated a particular song to her fans, who dared to attend a concert just days after Stephen Paddock‘s attack.
‘My wish is for some freaking peace! Don’t you think?’ she told her fans, according to People.
‘This is one of my favorite songs to sing – I want to dedicate it to you guys. You chose to come out and overcome this dumb fear. You chose to come into the community of music and to be together and be inspired,’ she said before breaking into her 2012 track Part of Me,’ Katy said.
‘We just don’t know when it’s going to happen again and we’re all trying to figure out the answers. I’m not saying I have the answers, and I pray every day. But the one thing we have to remember is prayer without action is powerless,’ she told her roaring crowd.
Later, Katy added some thoughts on gun control, a particularly hot-button topic following the massacre in Las Vegas. ‘No one is saying, ‘Take away your guns,’ but we just don’t necessarily need assault rifles, assault weapons. We have to put our foot down more than just sending our condolences.’
She continued saying that ‘Honestly, I get really sick to my stomach with everyone just sending their condolences, and then going back to selfie-ing and doing their regular stuff. That is not enough.’ It is really frightening how many celebrities are pro-guns these days, anyway.
