Ariana Grande is putting her fans first.
As you surely know, 22 people were killed (with countless others injured) this week after a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device inside the Manchester Arena during the Side To Side singer’s concert. Although the pop sensation is rightfully “traumatized” following this terrifying incident, it appears as though the A-lister is just trying to focus on helping her fans.
In fact, the only thing Miz Grande can think about these days is how to help the victims of the bombing. One insider explained to People:
“Right now, her main headspace and focus is the victims and how she can help. It’s less about her and her own state, and it’s more about them. She’s alive, she’s safe. This isn’t about her ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ it’s about the victims.”
We think that’s incredibly selfless of the 23-year-old. Of course, this Ariana update comes not long after it was reported that the Into You artist was offering to pay for the deceased victims’ funeral expenses. What a kind gesture.
We can’t imagine it’s been easy for Ariana as the identities of the many victims are slowly (but surely) getting confirmed. Most recently, teen couple Liam Curry and Chloe Rutherford were confirmed as deceased following Monday’s bombing. They were only 19 and 17 at the time of their deaths.
The twosome’s families have since released a joint, heartbreaking statement via the Greater Manchester Police. Their note read:
“On the night our daughter Chloe died and our son Liam died, their wings were ready but our hearts were not. They were perfect in every way for each other and were meant to be. They were beautiful inside and out to ourselves and our families, and they were inseparable. Chloe always described herself as ditzy who Liam adored and would do anything for, including dealing with Chloe’s demands for chocolate. They lived to go to new places together and explore different cities. They wanted to be together forever and now they are.”
This is just too sad.
We doubt Ariana and her team are ever going to forget this traumatic incident. The former child star’s manager, Scooter Braun, perfectly depicted how devastated Team Ariana is as he posted on Instagram:
The last 48 hours have been beyond devastating. As a father I cannot express my sorrow and my rage at this cowardice act. These were children. They were attacked because of our way of life. Our love of freedom and each other. There are no words that will comfort. There is nothing that can be said to make 22 return to their families today. I am so so sorry for their loss. I am so sorry to all those affected. Thank you to people of Manchester who have come together to help save lives and give shelter. Your courage and bravery is our hope. As I stated last night let’s please all hold the victims, their families, and all those affected in our hearts and prayers. From myself and my friend @arianagrande …We are with you Manchester. We will not let evil win! Never!A post shared by Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) on May 24, 2017 at 3:07pm PDT
We’re sending only love to the Arianators right now.
