Ariana Grande Says She’s ‘Broken’ After Manchester Concert Attack

UPDATE: Ariana Grande tweeted following the tragic bombing that claimed the lives of 22 of her concertgoers and injured 60 more.

“Broken,” the pop star wrote. “From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words.”

Scooter Braun, Ariana Grande’s longtime manager, has posted a statement addressing the Manchester, England attacks. “Tonight, our hearts are broken,” Braun, who is en route to see his client, wrote. “Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack.”

Grande also tweeted as the tragic scene played out in real-time, writing: “broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.”

Manchester Police say it was a lone suicide bomber was behind what they are calling a “terrorist incident.”

Braun has managed Grande since 2013, when the actress-turned-singer was just graduating from the Nickelodeon show “Victorious.” She has since released three albums, “Yours Truly,” “My Everything,” and “Dangerous Woman. Grande’s 2014 hit “Problem” reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The two have worked in tandem to build a global fanbase for Grande’s music — the so-called “Arianators,” who were seen in shaky videos from inside and outside the Manchester Arena wearing bright pink shirts. In addition to the color holding special significance, Grande is also known for her affinity for bunny ears, the outline of which, combined with a ribbon, has turned into a unifying symbol for the senselessness of the Manchester attacks.

The rest of her tour is in question following the attack.
