Ariana Grande is on the cover of British Vogue, and the singer opened up about the year that "changed everything."

 

Just over a year ago, Grande was finishing her show in Manchester when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive killing 22 people and injuring hundreds.

 

Grande canceled some of her tour dates but then co-organized a benefit concert a week later.

I hate...yeah...admitting it but it very much is. That's what everyone was telling me. It's hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss.

Now, she's back.

 

Grande is working on her fourth studio album, Sweetener, but she still struggles with the memories of the events in Manchester. She didn't like admitting that she had it considering what everyone else suffered. 

 

The singer said, "I hate...yeah...admitting it but it very much is. That's what everyone was telling me. 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 experiencelike I shouldn't even say anything," she added. "I don't think I'll ever know how to talk about it and not cry."

 

The "No Tears Left To Cry" singer talked about being anxious after the attack, but she's always had a problem feeling anxious, explaining, "I've always had anxiety. I've never really spoken about it because I thought everyone had it, but when I got home from tour it was the most severe I think it's ever been."
