Ariana Grande opened up about suffering post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the weeks following the suicide bombing that saw 22 people killed at her concert in Manchester last year, CNN reported.

The 24-year-old singer admitted feeling guilty for even speaking about how she was feeling when there were families and fans who experienced much worse suffering after the incident.

"It's hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss," she said in an interview with Vogue.

"I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well. Time is the biggest thing. I feel like I shouldn't even be talking about my own experience – like I shouldn't even say anything. I don't think I'll ever know how to talk about it and not cry."

The suicide bombing took place on May 22, 2017, when suspected suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated the blast at Grande's concert, blowing himself up in the process.

Grande revealed to Vogue that she has always suffered from anxiety but the incident exasperated it.

"My anxiety has anxiety… I've always had anxiety" she said. "I've never really spoken about it because I thought everyone had it, but when I got home from tour it was the most severe I think it's ever been."

The interview appeared in the July 2018 issue of British Vogue, for which Grande was the cover star.

The front-page image, which shows the singer sporting freckles and blonde hair tumbling down her shoulders, shocked fans who are accustomed to her wearing her usually dark hair tied up in a ponytail.

The image posted to Grande's Instagram account drew some backlash from critics who felt the pic looked nothing like her, with many questioning the authenticity of her freckles.
