Ariana Grande Sends Love To Manchester One Year After Attack

Ariana Grande is reflecting on the Manchester bombing.

On Tuesday, May 22, 2018, the "No Tears Left To Cry" singer took to Twitter to send love and support to her fans on the one-year anniversary of the devastating terrorist attack at her concert in Manchester, England, which claimed the lives of 22 people and injured more than 500.

"Thinking of you all today and every day," the 24-year-old hitmaker wrote, complete with a bee emoji, representing the city's symbol. "I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Grande opened up about the tragedy just last week in her Time magazine profile. "There are so many people who have suffered such loss and pain," she began. "The processing part is going to take forever. It's the absolute worst of humanity. That's why I did my best to react the way I did. The last thing I would ever want is for my fans to see something like that happen and think it won."

The "Break Free" singer added, "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, who has kept a relatively low profile over the last year, released her first song since the attack, "No Tears Left To Cry," just last month. It marked the first single off of her fourth studio album, Sweetener, which is set for a summer of 2018 release. Just over the weekend, the pop star opened the 2018 Billboard Music Awards with a performance of her latest hit.

While discussing the process of working on new music after the attack, Grande told Time, "When I started to take care of myself more, then came balance, and freedom, and joy. It poured out into the music."
