Hollywood Nation: Popstar tweets message of support to the twenty-two victims.

Ariana Grande struck a damehood from Queen Elizabeth II, a report of the progress.

Grande, 25, afforded the title for organising the One Love Manchester settlement after the tragic bombing on its 2017 concert in the English city, the Sun reports, but turned it down to spare the families of the victims’ feelings.

A source told The Sun, “Ariana was flattered, but said it was too early. She explained that she was still grieving. So were many families. They feared some of the affected might see it as insensitive. The commission wrote to her but she politely said, “no.”

Another Grande insider claimed, “She was deeply moved and proud. They did not refuse as such, but explained it was not the right time to accept it.”

Charlotte Hodgson, whose daughter, 15-year-old Olivia Campbell Hardy, was killed in the terror attack, said The Sun, that they are valued Grande.

“It is a nice gesture. She’s right — maybe a bit too fast. She is wonderful and would never do anything to hurt one of us.”
