Ariana Grande Explains Why She Kept Touring After Manchester Attack At Show

Ariana Grande has opened up about why she refused to cancel her tour after the Manchester bombing in May. 

"Calling it off and going home was not an option. The message of the show was too important," she tells the website Coveteur

"For the crew and everyone involved, it's become more than just a show for us. We are really grateful to be here and really grateful for this show." 

The 24-year-old singer also discusses her desire for everyone to embrace what's different about them. 

"I appreciate people exactly how they are," she explains. 

"There isn't a certain kind of beauty that I look for or appreciate or one thing [that] is more beautiful than the other. I love people's uniqueness. I love the quirky, weird and interesting—different things about everybody."

First show back tonight. Thinking of our angels every step of the way. I love you with all my heart. ☁️ ♡ 🙏🏼 Grateful for and incredibly proud of my band, dancers and entire crew. I love you I love you.
