On May 22, 2017, striker Salman Abedi blew up a bomb in front of the Manchester Arena, killing 22 people at the Grande concert. Among the victims were several children, including Saffie Rose Roussos, the youngest person killed in the attack, aged 8.
In an interview in British Vogue published in June 2018, Grande spoke of post-traumatic stress disorder that she experienced after the attack. She said, "I know these families and my fans, and all who live there have also experienced them." She added, "I feel I should not even talk about my own experience – as I should not even say anything."
In November 2018, she published a docus on YouTube, showing the singer writing a letter to her fans. "On May 22, 2017, I will remain speechless and filled with questions for the rest of my life," she wrote, calling the attack "shocking and heartbreaking in a way that seems impossible to completely recover ".
