The Guardian reported that council leader Sir Richard Lees called Ariana a “young American woman for whom it would have been understandable if she never wanted to see this place again”.

He commended her bravery saying ” as an artist, a performer, was determined that she would not perform again until she had returned to Manchester to perform,”.

Councillors voted unanimously that the popstar should be granted citizenship.
