The 'Dangerous Woman' singer was to be a surprise guest at the 2018 BRIT Awards' tribute, but became ill.

Ariana Grande couldn't have impressed Scooter Braun more in the aftermath of the Manchester bombing. 

During a recent interview on the podcast, Big Questions With Cal Fussman, Braun opened up about the tragic attack that killed 22 people after Grande's concert at Manchester Arena last May, and the effect it had on the 24-year-old singer. 

According to Braun, "for a little, tiny Italian girl, she is tough as nails," but was a wreck after the terror attack. 

"When she found out fans of hers had died, she was so sad," Braun said. "I mean, she cried for days. There was nothing that could stop us. She felt every pain. Every face that they announced, every name -- she wore it on her sleeve, like, every bit of emotion, because that's who she is."

Days later, Braun was preparing to cancel the rest of Grande's Dangerous Woman tour, but Grande wouldn't let him. "She said, ‘If I don't do something, I'm not who I say I am to these people," Braun recalled, revealing that they then decided to organize the One Love Manchester benefit concert.
