The senseless attack at Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester is hard to wrap your head around. At least 22 people have been confirmed dead by local police, and the brutality of the aftermath left people around the world stunned and afraid.

Whether you're an average citizen or a mega-star, seeing so many lives taken in an instant will leave anyone shook up. The openers for Ariana's European tour leg, Victoria Monet and BIA, relayed their horror at what happened as soon as they were safe. But their own safety was nowhere near enough to give them peace of mind, and they told their fans as much:
