Ariana Grande breaks silence on Manchester terror attack: “It’s still so heavy on my heart every single day”
Ariana Grande has spoken out about the Manchester terror attack, describing the explosion as the “absolute worst of humanity”.
The ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ singer broke her silence on the horrific incident of May 2017, in which a bomb explosion left 22 people dead at her concert in Manchester.
Speaking about the attack with Time magazine, Ariana revealed it still weighs heavy on her heart “every single day”.
“The last thing I would ever want is for my fans to see something like that happen and think it won,” the singer said.
“Music is supposed to be the safest thing in the world. I think that’s why it’s still so heavy on my heart every single day.
“I wish there was more that I could fix. You think with time it’ll become easier to talk about. Or you’ll make peace with it. But every day I wait for that peace to come and it’s still very painful.”
Ariana recently gave her first television interview since the Manchester attack and, although she did not speak directly about the incident, host Jimmy Fallon praised the singer for her bravery.
Speaking on The Tonight Show, the presenter said: “I know it’s tough for everybody, tough for fans and tough for you, and I know you haven’t done any interviews, and I understand that.
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for coming on the show and for being strong and for entertaining and for showing up and going back to Manchester and doing a benefit.
“I thought that was awesome of you. I just think you’re so strong and so cool.”
