Pop star Ariana Grande declared her love for the US during her Florida concert days after issuing an apology for slamming the country.
She returned to the stage for the first time on Thursday, July 16 at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida for the second-half of her “Honeymoon” tour.
In a video posted on YouTube by a fan, Grande could be heard saying to her fans during the show, “I’m so grateful to be here in Tampa! And I’m so, so grateful to be performing in the USA, the greatest country on the world! I love you guys so much.”
