She recently spoke about it for the first time in an interview, and now Ariana Grande has paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester bombing on their first anniversary.
On May 22nd, 2017 a suicide bomber killed 22 people who were leaving her gig at the Manchester Arena. The attack saw an outpouring of grief and support for the city which culminated in the star-studded One Love Manchester concert in June.
Grande's tweet was short and simple, remembering the victims and including the worker bee that is the symbol of the city:
thinking of you all today and every day ðŸ?? 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
