Making her first comment on since an explosion detonated just outside Manchester Arena at the end of her performance there, Grande said on Twitter: "broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words."

Representatives for Grande have said that the 23-year-old pop star was physically "okay" following the blast, which British authorities say was being treated as a terrorist attack.
