AceShowbiz - It has been over a year since the terrifying bombing attack at Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester, but the pop singer is still deeply traumatized by it. During an interview with Ebro Darden of Beats 1, the "No Tears Left to Cry" singer became overwhelmed with emotion while talking about the impact of the attack.
Discussing her new album "Sweetener", Ariana confirmed that track "Get Well Soon" off the album is about the bombing. Ebro noted that she began crying when the song was playing for the listeners, prompting him to ask whether she wanted to talk about it. "It's about being there for each other and helping each other through some scary times and anxiety," she said, pausing several times to wipe away her tears.
The Nickelodeon alum went on talking about mental health, noting that it "is so important." She said, "People don't pay enough mind to it... People don't pay attention to what's inside. I'm so sorry. I'm falling apart," Ariana said while crying, adding that she "just wanted to give a hug to people musically."
"People are permanently affected by this s**t... It's like perspective, it changes everything. It changes your life quite a bit, you know. You want to be more present and follow happy impulses in the moment," she continued. "You try not to give in fear because obviously that's the whole point in being here. That was the point of finishing my tour was to set an example for my fans who were fearless enough to show up."
Concluding her interview, Ariana confessed that she was still afraid to go anywhere after the bombing attack. "You look at places differently... I don't want to have metal detectors at my shows. I don't want people taking tiny a** bags into my shows," she said. "It's scary and it's some real s**t. You don't want to give in, you don't want to be afraid. It's still there, though."
