Twenty-two people died when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device at Ariana Grande’s concert at the Manchester Arena last May.
Only now, a year on, has the US singer been able to talk about it.
In an interview with British Vogue, Grande reveals her suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder following the attack, saying she doesn’t feel she’ll be able to talk about it without crying.
“It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it’s a real thing,” she told interviewer Giles Hattersley.
She added: “I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well.
“Time is the biggest thing.
“I feel like I shouldn’t even be talking about my own experience – like I shouldn’t even say anything. I don’t think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”
Earlier last month marked the one year anniversary of the attack at the Manchester Arena, with Grande posting a photograph of her new Manchester bee tattoo.
She captioned it: “forever”.
