scandal 15/06/2017

If anyone deserves it, it's Ariana Grande.

Our girl Ariana Grande is going to become the first ever 'honourary citisen' of Manchester.

The council of Manchester want to award her the honour after she arranged the One Love Manchester benefit concert to raise money for the victims of the terror attack at her Manchester Arena show that left 22 people dead.

Council leader Sir Richard Leese told BBC News: "[Many people already see Ariana as] an honorary Mancunian. This seems a fitting moment to update the way we recognise those who make noteworthy contributions to the life and success of our city.

"We've all had cause to be incredibly proud of Manchester and the resilient and compassionate way in which the city, and all those associated with it, have responded to the terrible events of 22 May - with love and courage rather than hatred and fear ... [Ariana had] exemplified this response."
