Ariana Grande to Become First Honorary Citizen of Manchester!

Ariana Grande was shocked to the core just a few weeks ago when terrorist, Salmen Abedi detonated a suicide bomb during the Manchester stop of her Dangerous Woman World Tour. 

That bomb left 22 people dead and as much as 59 injured, but Ariana opted not to let the terrorists win by returning to the city earlier this month with a benefit concert titled One Love Manchester. 

Now, it has emerged that Manchester is looking to recognize those who have made significant contributions to the city. Ariana is the first individual to be given such title. 

Council leader Sir Richard Leese told the BBC: “This seems a fitting moment to update the way we recognize those who make noteworthy contributions to the life and success of our city.”

“We’ve all had cause to be incredibly proud of Manchester and the resilient and compassionate way in which the city, and all those associated with it, have responded to the terrible events of 22 May – with love and courage rather than hatred and fear.”

After initially fleeing the country to return home to be with her family, Ariana released a statement saying she would be making her way back to Manchester for a benefit concert. 

“My heart, prayers and deepest condolences or with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones,” Grande writes to open her new message, adding: “There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better.

“However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.”

Have a look at the full statement below.

Grande stuck to her word and arranged a concert in a matter of days that included stars such as Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and Katy Perry. In turn, she helped raise a lot of money for the victims of the attack. 

If anything, the whole incident proved that Ariana is a brave young woman who fights for what she believes in. 

Ariana has since resumed her world tour, but got a bee tattoo in honor of the city of Manchester. 

If anyone deserves to be made an honorary citizen, it’s Ariana.

Ariana Grande Gets Manchester Bee Tattoo In Honor of Manchester

Ariana Grande is one of the bravest 23-year-olds out there.

Despite a devastating terror attack on the Manchester stop of her Dangerous Woman World Tour which killed 22 people and left 59 injured, the star made a triumphant return to the city just days after to hold a benefit concert that in order to raise money for The Red Cross. 

That pot of money raised was earmarked for the victims of the atrocity that occurred on May 22. It was a great gesture from the young star, who managed to get the likes of Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and The Black Eyed Peas to perform at the benefit. 

She even managed to get the concert together in a relatively small timeframe, and people have been admiring her bravery ever since the attack. 

With the benefit concert over and Ariana resuming her tour, that does not mean she’s in a hurry to forget the fans who were caught up in the attack. 

ET Online has confirmed that Grande got a new tattoo backstage at the concert and let’s just say it was a great way to honor the city of Manchester. 

She opted for the tattoo of a bee, which is actually the symbol of Manchester. Members of the star’s team are also said to have gotten the tattoo, but it’s unclear at this stage if any of the other celebrities opted for one. 

Ariana had originally postponed some of her tour dates in the wake of the tragedy, but she resumed her tour on Wednesday night in Paris. 

Mac Miller was with her, and the pair collaborated on one song, so at least we know their relationship is moving along swimmingly. 

Nowadays, “One Last Time” has become the star’s most important song.

It was the final song she performed the night of the Manchester attack and fans subsequently tried to push the song to number one on the charts as a way of honoring the people were hurt during the attack. 

Ariana even released it as a charity single last week, with a significant portion of the proceeds going to the British Red Cross.

Fans joined in to sing along with her during her rendition of the song in Paris. 

What do you think of Ariana getting the tattoo?

Selena Gomez Praises Justin Bieber’s Manchester Performance: It Was Beautiful!

It’s been just two days since the One Love Manchester benefit concert that Ariana Grande set up in the wake of the horrifying terrorist attack on Manchester. 

Celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and The Black Eyed Peas made their way to the event to sing to the people of Manchester. 

It resulted in some beautiful performances, but Justin Bieber’s set was up there as one of the ones that tugged at the heart strings. 

He went with acoustic performances of “Cold Water” and “Love Yourself.”

Selene Gomez even thought Justin’s performance was awesome and hit up SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up to speak about her thoughts on it. 

I thought Justin did great,” the 24-year-old said. “It was really beautiful.”

As you are probably well aware, Bieber and Gomez are not exactly on the best of terms. After dating on and off from 2011 to 2014, the couple not been very friendly. 

Things went into overdrive last year when Justin’s then-girlfriend, Sofia Richie was being trashed all over social media because, well, fans did not like her. 

It was horrible, but Selena became embroiled in all of it when she made a comment about Justin putting up pictures of Sofia and basically told him to keep her off social media, and there would be no issue. 

Justin has never been one to hold back, and apparently fired back claims that she used him for attention and actually cheated on him multiple times. 

It was horrid, but it showed just how much the warring former flames despised one another. Selena later issued an apology for getting involved, but it’s not exactly the type of thing you would just brush under the rug. 


How will Justin reply to Selena this time around? Will he continue to blame her for using his fame to get her further? We have no idea. 

On the same radio show, Selena also took a moment to praise the brave everyone else and Ariana Grande for arranging the concert so quickly after such a despicable act of terror. 

“Everyone did such a beautiful job. It was so gorgeous. I loved how [Grande] ended it,” Gomez said.
