Ariana Grande says she's coping with PTSD after the Manchester terror attack

Ariana Grande has spoken in-depth about dealing with the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following last year’s terror attack in Manchester.

The singer had just finished her concert at Manchester Arena on May 22, 2017 when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device, killing 22 people.

Grande added that she doesn’t think she’ll ever be able to talk about the bombing without crying, telling British Vogue: “It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it’s a real thing.

“I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well.

“Time is the biggest thing. I feel like I shouldn’t even be talking about my own experience – like I shouldn’t even say anything.

“I don’t think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”

Grande features on the cover of the July 2018 issue of the magazine, and has undergone a transformation with long blonde hair.

Last month, the star unveiled a new tattoo she had inked in honour of the victims of the atrocity, one year after the terror attack.

Grande posted a photo across social media which showed Manchester’s symbol of the worker bee inked behind her ear in a simple tattoo that incorporates a heart into the wings.

She captioned the photo simply: “Forever.”

Thousands of fans and survivors of the Manchester terror attack have been using the worker bee as a sign of solidarity following the attack.

Grande has also started adopting the emoji in remembering the victims, including most recently in a tribute she paid on the anniversary of the attack (May 22).

“Thinking of you all today and every day I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day,” she wrote.

Ariana recently opened up about the terror attack during a candid interview with TIME, saying that “there are so many people who have suffered such loss and pain”.

“The processing part is going to take forever,” she added.
