Ariana still weeps for Manchester fans

The mention of Manchester still brings Ariana Grande to tears.

The singer cried during her latest interview with Ebro in New York, as she shared her thoughts on the concert last year when a suicide bomber killed 22 people. Something she will never forget and it will always be on her mind.
She said that terrorists “want you to be afraid”, adding that those who just heard about it on the news had moved on. But for her and others, the challenge became just to “live in the moment” and not be overwhelmed by fear.

Her album Sweetener includes a song for Manchester survivors, Get Well Soon. It was released on Friday.

Grande also spoke of her fiancé Pete Davidson, of Saturday Night Live. She said she hoped to be married within five years, and that she would “probably” like to have three children.
