LONDON: Ariana Grande broke down in tears while discussing the Manchester bombing, which she said changed her life.
The 25-year-old singer was left devastated after 22 people were killed at Manchester Arena after her show in May 2017 when a bomb was detonated and over a year later, she still can’t discuss the tragedy without crying.
Speaking to Beats 1 Radio’s Ebro Darden, Ariana – who has just released her new album ‘Sweetener’ – said: ‘’Obviously [if you see it] on the news it affects you but not in the same way. You feel bad, you tweet it, you post a picture, you send your condolences, you say something and move on. But then Christmas comes and you’re thinking about it. I’m so sorry.’’ Ariana then broke down in tears before continuing.
She said: ‘’It’s like people are permanently affected by this and it’s just like, perspective. It changes everything, changes your life quite a bit. You want to be more present and follow happy impulses and figure it out later and stay in the moment.’’ Just weeks after the attack, Ariana returned to the city for the One Love Manchester concert, where she got her famous friends to come together for a massive fundraiser gig and she said she knew she had to set an example for her fans.
