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.

Justin Bieber Doesn’t Know Sh*t About Sports

Justin Bieber Is A Fake Sports Fan featureJustin Bieber doesn’t just fake his way through his concerts. Turns out he’s also faking almost all of his interest in sports. The singer took to Twitter to explain why he wears all those “Bieber” jerseys he gets at the different arenas he plays.

“I support all sports,” Justin wrote in one tweet. “I’ll put ANY jersey from ANY pro team.” Justin said that he still puts his hometown Toronto Maple Leafs above everyone else, but he doesn’t have qualms about sporting the free swag from any team.

“If I’m whack for wearing jerseys they give me out of love then I’m Whack,” he continued. “I also don’t know enough about sports to Really have valid opinion but I do enjoy sports!!”

Even though Justin might not really get sports, teams still love to have him. That’s what happened after the One Love Manchester concert, when the Manchester Storm hockey team invited Justin for a pick-up game.

He was so grateful for the chance to hit the ice that he left behind his personal hockey stick, which the team will auction off for charity. The money will go to victims of the Manchester bombing and their families.

Check out Justin’s tweets about sports below.
