Pop singer Ariana Grande has revealed that last year’s Manchester Arena terrorist attack still weighs heavily on her mind.
In an interview with TIME magazine, the US singer said the events of that terrifying night “were the absolute worst of humanity.”
Grande who is about to release new music nearly a year after the attack told the magazine of how the attack has had an impact on her music.
Speaking in depth to TIME, Grande said the following: “The last thing I would ever want is for my fans to see something like that happen and think it won.”
“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.”
Grande’s emotional comments come ahead of the attack’s one year anniversary.
The devastating attack which occurred on May 22nd 2017, saw 22 people lose their lives whilst 500 other people were injured in the bombing.
