The Manchester Arena attack happened during a sold-out Ariana Grande concert five years ago, taking 22 lives and injuring 500 more people as they were leaving the arena. Grande spoke to ELLE in July 2018 about how the experience physically and emotionally affected her, while noting her story is not as significant as the victims’ stories.
“When I got home from tour, I had really wild dizzy spells, this feeling like I couldn’t breathe,” she started. “I would be in a good mood, fine and happy, and they would hit me out of nowhere. I’ve always had anxiety, but it had never been physical before. There were a couple of months straight where I felt so upside down.”
Regarding the terrorist attack itself, “You hear about these things,” Grande said. “You see it on the news, you tweet the hashtag. It’s happened before, and it’ll happen again. It makes you sad, you think about it for a little, and then people move on. But experiencing something like that firsthand, you think of everything differently…. Everything is different.”
She added that getting back onstage after that experience was “terrifying” and credited her fans for giving her courage. Grande performed at the One Love Manchester concert as her first show back, telling her mother that, after the attack, she would not sing again unless she sang in Manchester first.
“Why would I second-guess getting on a fucking stage and being there for them? That city, and their response? That changed my life,” Grande said.
