Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie Speak on Las Vegas Tragedy

By Robyn Collins New American Idol judges, Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry were interviewed on Good Morning America where they discussed the deadly shootings at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. Related: Artists Respond to Tragedy in Las Vegas “It was one of the most heartbreaking days of life,” Bryan said. After the incident, Luke spoke with his good friend Jason Aldean, who was on stage when the shooting began. He shared what that difficult conversation was like: “Hearing one of your best friends shaken up like that, knowing they’ll never be able to un-see these things, you get lumps, and you get nauseated,” Bryan said. “It’s horrible,” added Perry. “I think that everyone feels like their heart has just been ripped out of their chest, and we just don’t know when it’s gonna happen again. And I think we’re all trying to figure out the answers.” “I pray every day,” she continued, “but I think the one thing we have to remember is that prayer without action is powerless, and we have to have some action. We have to take a good hard look at what our rules and our boundaries are with gun reform, no one’s saying take away your guns, but we just don’t necessarily need assault rifles.” Perry closed with saying, “I know it’s a touchy subject, but I think we really have to take a good hard look at it.”

(RADIO.COM) – Katy Perry’s Witness: The Tour is well underway after a kickoff in Montreal last week. Fans who can’t get enough of Perry’s live show will soon be able to stream exclusive content from the tour as well as videos, playlists and interviews once Perry’s TV channel goes live.

It means a lot to me for all of my fans, no matter what their situation, to feel like they can come along for the ride,” Perry said of the new Xfinity X1 channel, reports Billboard. “[It] will be a place where I can give fans weekly glimpses into all the different facets of the tour — not just the work of it, but also the fun!”

The channel may prove a lifesaver for fans who don’t live near a tour stop or can’t cobble together the cost of a ticket. In a teaser, a voiceover jokes that viewers will be able to “witness” Katy hanging with Left Shark, playing with puppies, officiating weddings, shooting hoops and more.

Perry has 85 shows scheduled for her world tour, which runs through August 2018. Opening acts include Carly Rae Jepsen, Purity Ring and Noah Cyrus.
