“There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better.
“However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.” she said.
“From the day we started putting the Dangerous Woman Tour together, I said that this show, more than anything else, was intended to be a safe place for my fans. A place for them to escape, to celebrate, to heal, to feel safe and to be themselves. To meet their friends they’ve made online. To express themselves.
“This will not change that.
“When you look into the audience at my shows, you see a beautiful, diverse, pure, happy crowd.
“Thousands of people, incredibly different, all there for the same reason, music.
“Music is something that everyone on Earth can share.
“Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy.
“So that is what it will continue to do for us.”
“We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy.
“They will be on my mind and in my heart everyday and I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life.”
