Ariana Grande Reacts To Being Named Manchester’s First Honorary Citizen

Ariana Grande Reacts To Being Named Manchester's First Honorary Citizen featureAriana Grande has reacted to the news that she was made an official citizen of the city of Manchester, England. Plans to honor Ariana were announced last month after she threw a massive benefit concert for the victims of her bombed Manchester show. The city government has now made the move official after putting it to a vote Wednesday.

“It would have been understandable if she had never wanted to see this place again,” said Manchester council leader Sir Richard Leese. “But she determined she would not perform again until she had returned to Manchester.”

Richard commended Ariana not just for putting on the show, but for raising a ton of money for the attack’s victims. Ariana reacted to the news on Instagram and posted a screenshot of Richard’s kind words and reacted in the caption.

“I’m moved and honored,” she wrote. “My heart is very much still there.”

Check out Ariana’s entire reaction to her new honorary citizenship below.

Suspect Arrested For Threatening To Bomb Ariana Grande’s Costa Rica Concert

Suspect Arrested For Threatening To Bomb Ariana Grande's Costa Rica Concert featureCosta Rican authorities arrested a man who threatened to bomb Ariana Grande’s Sunday night concert in Alajuela, Costa Rica. The man, a Colombian identified by the family names Caicedo Lopez, reportedly made threats to bomb the concert online. Lead investigator Walter Espinoza told local media that the suspect’s online threats were written in Arabic.

The threat comes after Ariana’s concert in Manchester, England was bombed in May. That attack killed 22 and disrupted Ariana’s “Dangerous Woman Tour” as she recovered from the shocking incident. Ariana eventually returned to the stage to close out her tour’s European leg before heading to South America, but not before a massive benefit show in Manchester.

The Costa Rica show went ahead as planned Sunday night. Tuesday, authorities noted that the suspect was later released on Sunday night. He remains on parole while the investigation is underway.

Check out Ariana’s posts from the evening below.

Britney Spears Doesn’t Know Who Ariana Grande Is…Or Selena Gomez

Britney Spears doesn't know who Ariana Grande is-1Britney Spears made not one but two huge mistakes during a phone interview earlier this week. The singer will be performing in Tel Aviv, Israel on July 3 and while discussing concert security, she confused Ariana Grande for Selena Gomez and also mentioned the wrong city while referencing the Manchester attack.

“Well, I think, you know, in Israel, it’s the same thing that’s kind of going on in America,” Britney began and it quickly went downhill from there. She first mentioned Rihanna, but then fixed her mistake by saying Selena–which was still wrong. “I mean, Selena Gomez, look what happened to her in London,” Britney said.

The terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert was one of the biggest news stories last month, but Britney is a hard working mom of two so she may not have been keeping up with the news. However, she did sent out a tweet after the tragic event took place.
