Ariana Grande might have put her Dangerous Woman tour on hold in the wake of the Manchester bombing, but she will be returning to the city of Manchester sooner than later for a special benefit concert.
In a letter posted on social media on Friday morning, Grande explained, “My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones. There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better.”
She wrote, “However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way. The only thing we can do now is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out.”
“The compassion, kindness, love, strength and oneness that you’ve shown one another this past week is the exact opposite of the heinous intentions it must take to pull off something as evil as what happened Monday,” the singer shared.
The 23-year-old then revealed she will be “returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honor or the victims and their families.”
Mac Miller’s girlfriend added, “I want to thank my fellow musicians and friends for reaching out to be part of our expression of love for Manchester. I will have details to share with you as soon as everything is confirmed.”
Ariana’s announcement comes on the heels of getting backlash from fans who criticized the singer for flying back to the Unites States following the tragic occurrence. Some fans argued the pop star should have stayed in England to grieve with victims and their families.
Grande had just wrapped her show at the Manchester Arena on Monday when a bomb went off in the foyer of the venue. The terror attack killed 22 and wounded 59 others.
No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
