Last week, Ariana Grande released her long awaited docuseries to YouTube. This four-part series, titled Ariana Grande: Dangerous Woman Diaries, highlights her most recent tour and the making of Sweetener, her fourth studio album. The episodes include never before seen backstage footage from the Dangerous Woman Tour, highlights from the concerts, and even some Pete Davidson appearances.
The series also shows Grande experiencing the heart-wrenching terrorist attack that occurred at her Manchester concert in May of 2017 and her One Love Manchester Concert she held in memory of the lives lost that night.
Ariana addresses the incident in a letter that was written in February of this year – exactly 8 months after the performance. She reflects on the bombing and all who were affected by the violence that day.
She delves into the impact that this incident had on her and how she feels that she will never be the same because of it. She discusses how she always thought music was safe and an escape. However, she states that what happened in Manchester was the complete opposite and she will never be able to recover from that.
She urges her fans and all who were affected to appreciate every moment they have, and to love fully and deeply so that hate will not win.
She later addressed in the episode that she wants to move forward from this tragedy. Ariana says she will never stop doing what she is doing because it creates feeling and emotion for people and there is nothing more beautiful than that.
