Ariana Grande On Manchester Attack: 'It's Still Very Painful'

Ariana Grande has opened up about the terrorist attack outside her concert last May.

"There are so many people who have suffered such loss and pain. The processing part is going to take forever,” the singer told Time, which named her one of 10 “Next Generation Leaders.”

Grande added: I don’t want to give it that much power. Something so negative. 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.”

Grande said "music is supposed to be the safest thing in the world" and that's why the tragedy weighs so heavy on her heart. "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.”
