Tragedy struck at an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena tonight in Manchester, England and the pop star has emerged to tweet out her thoughts on what is currently being investigated as a terrorist attack that left multiple dead and dozens more injured.

Ariana was understandably brief in her statement, noting that she was “broken,” before saying “from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.”

Ariana is clearly shaken, and appears to even feel responsible because of the fact that the attack took place at her concert, so it’s understandable that she is at a loss for words. Her record label, Universal Music Group, also commented on the horrifying situation via a Facebook post.

The attack is said to have been the work of a suicide bomber, and appears to have taken place as concert-goers were exiting the arena. The death-toll makes the bombing the deadliest attack on British soil since the 7/7 bombings that killed 52 people back in July 2005.

TMZ is reporting that the Ariana has suspended her tour indefinitely in the wake of the attack.

Other musicians joined in to send out their well wishes on Twitter. Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Lorde, Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera and many more took to social media to send their thoughts and prayers to victims of the tragic incident that has shaken Manchester.
