Madonna’s Emotional Speech on Paris Attacks: ‘Why Am I Up Here Dancing And Having Fun While People Are Crying?’
Madonna addressed the attacks in Paris on Nov. 13 during her concert in Stockholm today (Nov. 14.)
“This whole show is about celebrating life. And standing up for your rights. Fighting for what you believe in,” she said to cheers from the crowd.
“It’s been very hard for me to get through this show and not forget about what happened last night. So I need to take this moment to acknowledge the tragedy. The tragic killings, assassinations and the senseless ending of precious life that occurred last night in Paris,” she continued.
“In many ways, I feel torn. Like why am I up here dancing and having fun when people are crying over the loss of their loved ones?”

Madonna also took to her Instagram earlier with a statement saying “we are all immigrants.”
