Ariana Grande is calling for “peace” and “gun control” after the deadly massacre at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday.

“My heart is breaking for Las Vegas. We need love, unity, peace, gun control & for people to look at this & call this what it is = terrorism,” the international pop star tweeted Monday morning.

In June, a suicide attacker set of a homemade bomb at one of Grande’s concerts at the Manchester Arena, killing 22 and injuring dozens more. It was the worst terrorist attack in the U.K. since the London bombings on July 7, 2005, that claimed 52 lives. The attack in Las Vegas on Sunday night has killed at least 58 and injured hundreds, making it the worst shooting in recent U.S. history.

After the terrorist attack in Manchester, Grande came back to the city to host “One Love Manchester,” a benefit concert featuring several other artists, including Justin Bieber and Katy Perry, which raised more than $2.5 million to benefit victims during the three-hour span of the concert.
