After bringing together millions of people across the globe through her One Love Manchester Concert, Ariana Grande is receiving a huge thank you from the city — and trust me, it’s well deserved.
After the Manchester attack in May, Grande did her part for the community by not only staging an amazing benefit concert that included the likes of Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, but also by paying for the victims’ funerals and visiting injured fans in the hospital. So Manchester decided to show their love for her by granting her honorary citizenship — that’s right, Ariana Grande is a Mancunian now.
Of course, fans and supporters thought it was the perfect way to give back to Grande for everything she’s done.
This is pretty much what I have been pushing for, so this is brilliant news, well played MCC

Honorary Manc? I think she more than deserves it! Thank you @ArianaGrande. Welcome to Manchester. We do things differently here 👍

Could we just go ahead and give her UK citizenship? Or, like, complete European citizenship?
Surely @ArianaGrande has not only met but surpassed the requirements to be awarded the title of Honorary Dame of The British Empire.
