On Tuesday, pop singer Katy Perry offered her advice on how to respond to Monday’s terrorist attack in Manchester, England.

In an interview with Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, Perry said that the attack, which killed at least 22 people and injured 59, left her “devastated”:

“I can’t really tell anyone else how they should feel, but I just feel devastated.”

Perry then characterized the Internet as “an absolute underbelly, mob pit of horribleness” because of the way fans of rival celebrities snipe at one another:

“Besides, like, all the weird stuff that goes around on the Internet, which is sometimes a great place, but an absolute underbelly, mob pit of horribleness. I think, like, the greatest thing that we can do now is just unite as people, as like fan bases, all of it, you know.

“Because I think, like, as much, you know, whatever we say behind people’s backs, because the Internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go.”

Perry then offered her solution: eliminate borders, barriers and simply choose to love and get along with one another:

“But, I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other. And, like, no barriers, no borders; we all just need to co-exist.”

“Tell everyone you love, ‘I love you,’ today.”
