The pop star expressed her despair on Twitter:
Grande is reportedly in “hysterics” over the incident.
According to TMZ, she is “devastated” that young people who came to her concert to have a good time – are now “lying dead and injured” in the arena.
The young singer flew back to her home town in Florida overnight, and was snapped disembarking from the plane.

She was greeted by her boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, before she was driven in a private car to her home. Extra police patrols are reportedly on duty to ensure the young singer is safe following the terror attack.
The 23-year-old pop singer’s next concert is scheduled for Thursday at London’s O2 Arena, but there are reports her tour has been put on hold “indefinitely” because Grande is “in no condition to perform”.
Ariana had just left the stage at the end of her concert when a nail bomb exploded near the front door of the arena – while people were trying to leave the concert.
Rapper BIA, who was one of two support acts at the Manchester concert on Monday night has also shared two tweets about the bombing, writing, “My heart is broken” in the first and, “Praying for everyone tonight please gets [sic] home safe.”
So far it’s been confirmed 22 people have been killed and around 50 others have been injured.
