“I just want to take a moment to honor the people who were taken,” the singer, who was fighting back tears, said of the victims of the terror attack following Grande’s May 22 Manchester concert. “We love you so much.”
Gomez went on to keep the positivity flowing when asked about the “new people” in her and pal Taylor Swift’s life.
“I hang out with my new person a lot,” she answered with a laugh, coyly referring to her boyfriend of five months, The Weeknd.
“Honestly, if my friends are happy, that makes me happy, that’s all I care about, so I am super stoked too. It's been a good time.”
“To me, I love being supportive. I love just being there and just kind of having somebody’s back. It feels good, I haven’t had that feeling in a while,” she said. Plus, since she’s not the one taking the stage right now, she says she's able to wear her "hair in a bun" and gets to "dance all night.”
