Ariana Grande and her team have decided to suspend part of the European leg of the Dangerous Woman tour "until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost." The bombing that took place in Manchester at the end of her show killed 22 people, including children, and left dozens injured. Performance dates have been canceled through June 5. As of now, the tour will resume in Paris on June 7.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has heightened security levels from "severe" to "critical," and notified citizens that another attack is not only likely, but may be "imminent." Cannes Film Festival canceled several events in the wake and Warner Bros. has called off its London premiere of Wonder Woman. Security measures will be heightened across England, with armed officers on patrol in Manchester.

Many celebrities and musicians have paid tribute to Manchester and given their condolences to Grande, including Harry Styles, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner, Christiano Renaldo, Justin Timberlake, and Bruno Mars, exemplifying the wide-reaching scope of the tragedy, and how hard it has hit so many.

Grande has yet to release an official statement, but she did tweet soon after the attack. Since then, she has remained quiet while the world remains in shock. We'll be waiting to hear if she can offer any words of comfort at her June 7th show.

Her longtime manager Scooter Braun had more to say this morning, sharing a new outlook on his appreciation for life in the aftermath of the tragedy.
