The 52-year-old continued to keep his followers up-to-date with the breaking news coverage this morning, as he later informed them: "BREAKING: Las Vegas shooter named as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock". I've spent a lot of time in Vegas. But, as plenty of viewers pointed out on Twitter, having the pop star deliver her thoughts while sprawled out on a couch and bathed in mood lighting in front of a Christmas tree seemed in bad taste.

The singer just ended her residency at Caesars Palace in July and she'll be back in December for a run of Christmas shows.

"It's awful because people are just going out to listen to music and that's what they want to do", Carey said. "That's what they wanna do, and they're out for the night and something shocking like this happens, and nobody could have expected it and it's just wrong".

Viewers of the show criticized the pre-booked segment as "inappropriate" when Morgan asked the singer about the tragic Las Vegas shootings that occurred on Sunday at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival featuring country music star, Jason Aldean.

Morgan defended the interview and the questioning, tweeting that the show had told "Mariah's people" before the interview about the subject.

Burnley pile pressure on Everton manager
Burnley had to wait until their penultimate away game, against Crystal Palace , to record a win on the road last season. The Toffees have now lost four of their last five Premier League games and are two places above the relegation zone.

"Horrified to hear about the shooting in #LasVegas".

Those who watched the awkward interview expressed their outrage on Twitter, pointing the finger at Good Morning Britain for mixing the pre-arranged segment and a breaking news reaction in such a way. "Her reaction seemed relevant given she's a performer who often has residence in Vegas". "Praying for everyone's safety", she later wrote in a tweet.

A gunman is believed to have opened fire from the upper floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. It is now the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

Last night's shootings reportedly occurred during a set by popular USA country singer Jason Aldean, who is thought to have immediately left the stage after the incident.
