Ariana Grande is speaking out following a deadly explosion at her concert in Manchester, England Monday night. The singer tweeted Monday that the incident has left her feeling "broken." "[F]rom the bottom of my heart, [I] am so so sorry," Ariana tweeted. "[I] don't have words."


A bomb exploded in the entrance hall of the Manchester Arena around 10:30 p.m. Monday as Ariana's concert was ending and crowds had begun to leave. At least 22 people have been killed with dozens more injured and 59 hospitalized, some with life-threatening injuries, according to The New York Times. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack on Tuesday. 

A rep for Ariana told Variety shortly after the news of the blast that she is "okay." 

Ariana's manager, Scooter Braun, also released a statement following the attack on Instagram. "Tonight, our hearts are broken. Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack," he said in the statement. "We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act. We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester's first responders who rushed towards danger to help save lives. We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families, and all those affected in your hearts and prayers."
