“We should not let them win”.

Katy Perry paid tribute to the 22 people who tragically lost their lives in a terrorist attack after Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester on Monday, and told the crowd “we should not let them win”. 

Speaking in the middle of her set at The Water Rats in London last night, where she was performing for the launch party of Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, Katy broke down during her impassioned speech.

She told the 90-person crowd at the intimate gig, “This week has been really hard. It sucked. It was hard for you guys and it was hard for me because we all love music. We’re all listening to the same music. And you think about it and think that’s my friend, that’s my sister, that’s my cousin, that’s my brother. It’s awful. 

“And whatever you can do to help, you should. And if you can’t do anything that’s fine. But what you should do is not let them win.” 

Well said, Katy! 

90 lucky people got the chance to see Katy up close and personal at the tiny venue in London, where she performed her first ever gig in the UK way back in 2008 to celebrate the launch of Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp - and as well as her inspiring speech she made sure to catch up with Roman beforehand - check out the video below:
