Artist, Katy Perry, has many collectively scratching their heads with her recent comments regarding the recent Manchester bombing. In an interview with Elvis Duran and the Morning Show on Tuesday, the pop megastar did what every out of touch celebrity does, gives the ole why can’t we all get along speech.

In the interview, Perry tries to find some light in the deaths of 22 people, many of which were children, by asking for all of us to “unite.” She also has the gall to start talking about her and fellow artist, Ariana Grande’s fan bases combining to deliver “love.”
“Whatever we say behind people’s backs, the Internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go but I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other,” Perry said waxing poetically. She quickly adds, “No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.”
Many observers were left bewildered by Perry’s comments as it seems that people who are willing to blow themselves up to kill people they are already living among probably aren’t interest in coexisting.
This is nothing new for celebrities and artists to put their unwanted two cents into recent terror attacks but telling people to come together and “unite” after kids were senselessly murdered is ridiculous. This is why celebrities get a bad rap when they speak on their political ideology.
Perry also added Tuesday, “we’re just all loving on each other and we should just stay loving on each other.” Yes, everyone is loving each other now because that’s what you do when you mourn.
Perry, who has been a vocal opponent to President Trump’s administration, may be facing an uphill battle on the “no borders” line of thinking, as he still plans to create borders for Americans to stay safe and keep these incidents from happening to us.
The bomber, Salman Abedi, 22, detonated what authorities believed was a nail bomb as women and children exited the concert venue. The 22-year-old died in the explosion, according to CNN. Grande’s manager told the press that the artist was “broken” and has decided to cancel the remaining tour dates of her “Dangerous Women” tour.
