Ariana Grande Speaks Out After Manchester Concert Explosion That Left 22 Dead, Celebs Tweet Support For Victims

UPDATE: The Islamic State claimed responsibility Tuesday following a suicide bombing in Manchester that left 22 people dead at an Ariana Grande concert. 

A deadly explosion killed at least 22 people and left around 50 people injured at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. 

The explosion is believed to be the work of terrorists, police said Monday.
Ariana Grande just finished her performance when the explosions happened around 10:35 p.m. She was not injured.

The 23-year-old pop singer tweeted out about the devastating events and said she is broken: 
According to TMZ, Ariana suspended the rest of her world tour in the wake of the terrorist bombing. She will not perform Thursday in London and has decided, for now, to put the entire European tour on hold. She was scheduled to perform in England, Belgium, Poland, Germany and Switzerland. 

Ariana's manager, Scooter Braun, said, "We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act," adding, "We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families, and all those affected in your hearts and prayers."
