Ariana Grande has proved just how much of an effect the Manchester terror attack had on her mental health, showing the shocking levels of PTSD in a scan of her brain.
Ariana Grande posted the scan of her brain on Instagram Stories to show the full extent the terrorist attack at her Manchester concert in 2017 has had on her mental health.
Describing the results as “hilarious and terrifying” Ariana reminded her loyal fans the effects of post traumatic stress disorder are “not a joke”.
Posting a photo of what a healthy brain scan looks like compared to a person’s with PTSD, Ariana added three images of her own scan and the shocking levels of PTSD in her own brain.
Ariana’s scan shows more than double the amount of PTSD in the picture she initially used for comparison.
The image shows how the pop star is still feeling the effects following the Manchester terror attack which killed 22 people during her Dangerous Woman tour on 22 May 2017.
Last year Ariana opened up about how the horrific ordeal has affected her, telling Vogue in 2018: “It's hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss.
"But, yeah, it's a real thing. I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well."
The 25 year old also said she doesn’t “think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”
