When it comes to global issues such as fighting ISIS, pop singer Katy Perry is all about a peaceful solution.
“I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other and like, no barriers, no borders, like we all need to just co-exist,” Perry said recently during an interview on Elvis Duran and the Morning radio show.
Perry and Duran were reacting to the recent Manchester Arena bombing in England on Monday, during which 22 people were killed – including an 8-year-old girl – and 59 others injured when a suicide bomber attacked the arena following an Ariana Grande concert.
Perry said she was “devastated” about the event. She went on to say how her fans and Grande’s fans are “just all loving on each other, and we should just stay loving on each other.”
Perry had tweeted after the incident that she was “broken hearted.”
Duran commented that the bombing “gives us all the more reason why we need to have big, fun concerts.”
“It’s kind of interesting how that works out,” Duran said during the interview. “They try to ruin one, but actually it makes the ones in our future more important.”
The Islamic State took credit for the suicide bomber, 22-year-old Salman Abedi, who set off the explosion Monday. It was the deadliest bombing in Great Britain in more than a decade.
