“It’s just awful.”

Las Vegas is Mariah Carey’s second home.

The pop diva frequently performs in the city, so you can imagine the devastating news regarding the tragic mass shooting that took place at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival Sunday night was especially unnerving for her.

Carey appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss her new shot, but the breaking news derailed her plans to promote. Instead, host Piers Morgan asked Mariah her thoughts on it.

“It’s just awful,” she responded. “Again, I pray for the victims and hope that all of this can stop as soon as possible. I’ve spent a lot of time in Vegas. This type of thing happening anywhere is a huge tragedy. So I continue to pray for the victims and hope we have an end to this as soon as possible.”

Followers on social media were less than thrilled with Mariah’s body language – she’s lying on a chaise lounge chair in a gown in front of a Christmas tree, but to be fair she was originally meant to talk about her upcoming XMAS show/song. That’s just Mariah – the sentiment is all there.
