Ariana Grande is speaking out after Monday’s suspected terrorist attack at Manchester Arena in England.

The “Side to Side” singer tweeted a message to her 45 million followers, offering condolences for the horrific incident. “Broken,” the 23-year-old writes. “From the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.”


According to TMZ, Grande suspended her world tour in the wake of the attack. She is also reportedly “inconsolable.”

Twenty-two people have been confirmed dead and more than 59 others injured as a result of the explosion, according to a statement by Manchester police. The singer was unharmed. Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed the incident is being “treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack.”


Details are still coming in, but unconfirmed reports allege a suicide bomber might have detonated a nail-filled explosive device. Witnesses describe hearing a “huge bang,” and hospitals report many with shrapnel wounds.

Family and friends have turned to social media to try to track down loved ones. Grande fans — and celebrities — are also offering support for the singer.

Prior to Monday’s show, Grande was having the time of her life while on her “Dangerous Woman” tour.
