Madonna Gives Tearful Speech on Paris Attacks (Video)

Madonna took a moment to acknowledge the deadly Paris attacks during her concert on Saturday (November 14) in Stockholm, Sweden.

The 57-year-old clearly got emotional while opening up to the crowd about the horrific event the night before.

“This whole show is about celebrating life. And standing up for your rights. Fighting for what you believe in,” Madonna told 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 added, “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?”
