A terrorist detonated an explosive device as fans were leaving her concert in the city on May 22 past year, killing 22 innocent people and injuring more than 500. But in a new interview with Time, the 24-year-old is finally speaking out, saying that she is ready to be happy. "Music is supposed to be the safest thing in the world", she said. "However each day I watch for that peace to return and it is nonetheless very painful".

The hitmaker confessed that she was still struggling in the aftermath: "I wish there was more that I could fix". That's when they chose to put on the One Love Manchester benefit concert.

It was held in aid of the victims and all families that suffered in the wake of the bombing that took place moments after Ariana had finished her performance on May 22.

Last May, 22 people were killed and hundreds were injured in the bombing after Grande's concert at the city centre venue. You suppose with time it will turn out to be simpler to speak about.

She added: "I felt more inclined to tap into my feelings because I was spending more time with them".

The US singer described the bombing as "the absolute worst of humanity".

"I don't want to give it that much power, something so negative". He told her they have to set up a concert and get back over to Manchester. She said, 'I can never sing these songs again. "The last thing I would ever want is for my fans to see something like that happen and think it won", she explains. "Don't put me in this position'".

But a few days later, Grande reportedly called Braun and told him she'd changed her mind: "If I don't do something, these people died in vain".

"That's why I did my best to react the way I did", Ariana continues.
