Ariana Grande pulls off a flawless show in Manchester

Ariana Grande and the stars she corralled took the stage for her One Love concert in Manchester … and they left quite an impact on the city after a horrific terror attack.

Ariana performed throughout the 3 hour benefit concert with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas and a number of other acts and guest appearances that filled the Old Trafford Cricket Ground arena with music and good vibes.

Some highlights included Ariana’s manager, Scooter Braun, having an emotional moment onstage while introducing Ariana mid-set; Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry paying tribute to the Manchester victims; Mac Miller joining Ariana onstage; Bieber’s unifying words; Coldplay blowing away the crowd with an epic performance; Liam Gallagher from Oasis crashing the show; and, of course, Ariana singing an emotional “Over the Rainbow” cover to close things out.

The event comes just a day shy of 2 weeks since the bombing after her show in Manchester killed 22 people … and 1 day after a second terror attack in London that killed 7 and injured at least 48.

As we reported … the show sold out in 6 minutes and security measures were tightened up in anticipation. Guests of her original concert in Manchester were allowed to see Ariana again for free.

Seems like everything went off without a hitch. They raised more than $275,000 by the end of the show.

Madonna confesses love for her Ex husband on stage for the second time this year

Madonna loves her ex-husband Sean Penn, something she has said twice to his face this year.The actor appeared onstage at the pop star’s Raising Malawi charity auction and gala during Art Basel in Miami Friday. He craweled in between her legs and slapped handcuffs on her playfully. She told the audience she would marry him again if he bid $150,000 for a necklace. He did, but was later outbid.

“I’m still in love with you,” Madonna told Penn onstage, as he blushed. “Yes. In fact, I think I love you more now that we’re divorced.”

The two were married for four years before they divorced in 1989. It marked the first marriage for both, who have no children together.

Madonna had also professed her love for Penn at his Help Haiti Home benefit gala this past January, saying, “I want to say, Sean, that I love you from the moment that I laid eyes on you and I still love you just the same. I just wish you’d stop smoking so many cigarettes.”Madonna also performed at the Raising Malawi event, singing some of her hits, such as “Don’t Tell Me” and “Beautiful Stranger,” as well as a cover of Britney Spears‘ “Toxic.”
