The Craig McDean-shot cover is only the surface. In the magazine, Grande talks about her difficult year in which 22 people died and 59 others were injured when a male suicide bomber self-detonated outside Manchester Arena.
“It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it's a real thing,” she said. “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.”
