The world was rocked on Friday night when news spread that a terrorist attack on Paris had left over 120 people dead and over 200 people injured.
After opening fire during an Eagles of Death Metal concert and attacking cafe patrons in Paris, the capital city went into lockdown, with the entire world mourning along with France.
The Foo Fighters and U2 have both cancelled European tour dates as a safety precaution, while a worldwide webcast featuring performances from Elton John and Duran Duran in front of the Eiffel Tower was also cancelled.
Stephen Colbert, who learned of the attacks after taping Friday’s episode of The Late Show, went on camera and was speechless while trying to put into words the day’s events.
SNL dedicated Saturday’s cold open to the City of Lights, with cast member Cecily Strong delivery a simple yet heartfelt message to Paris in both English and French.
Many celebrities took to social media to express their despair and condolences to those affected by Friday’s horrific events.
With so many at a loss for words, Madonna was able to delived an incredibly moving speech during her Rebel Heart tour stop in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday. Madonna started her dedication to Paris by saying “This whole show is about celebrating life. And standing up for your rights. Fighting for what you believe in.”
The legendary pop singer and actress went on to say that she was torn, tearing up while explaining that she felt that she shouldn’t be singing and dancing while others are suffering heartbreak over their loved ones. But, as Madonna pointed out, not enjoying life is what the terrorists want. Continuing to live life to the fullest is the best way to honour those who died this week.
