"I want to take this moment right now for Las Vegas tonight," she began. "Listen, I know it's been a tough day. But music is special. It's magic. It's something that unites us. There's community here that we need to take care of, that we need to surround, that we need to lift up. I know we that we all feel very disconnected sometimes, but I know music brings us together, and it should never be a place of fear -- right?"
Perry then noted that inherently we all are connected in some way through our social media posts, but "sometimes, we forget we need to touch each other. We need to see each other." She asked members of the crowd to turn to their right or left and simply introduce themselves. "Just say, 'I love you!'" she punctuated.
She finished by saying, "No one's going to steal our joy. No one's gonna wilt our flowers, no one's gonna take our power from us."
