Madonna stopped her concert and paid tribute to the victims of the Paris terrorist attack through tear-filled eyes Saturday night.
While performing a show in Stockholm, the singer began crying and dedicated a moment of silence to those who lost their lives.
“I need to take a moment to acknowledge the tragic killings, assassinations,” Madonna said. “And the senseless ending of precious lives that occurred last night in Paris.”
“It’s disturbed me all day, and it’s been really hard to get through the show. Why am I up here having fun and dancing while people are crying over the loss of their loved ones?”
But the singer said she wouldn’t let terrorists silence her. (RELATED: Madonna Thinks Kanye West Is The Black Version Of Her)
“I was going to cancel my show tonight. Why should I give that to them? Why should I allow them to stop me—to stop us—from enjoying freedom?”
