Fans Want Ariana Grande As Prime Minister After Success Of 'One Love Manchester' Concert
Move over, Theresa. There’s a new Dangerous Woman in line for No. 10 Downing Street.
Last night saw 23-year-old pop princess Ariana Grande hold a benefit concert in remembrance of those who lost their lives in the Manchester terror attack. Joined by the likes of Katy Perry, Black Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus, Little Mix and more, the songstress moved fans with her performance of hits such as One Last Time, alongside a tearful rendition of Somewhere Over The Rainbow.
Many expressed their awe at Ariana’s bravery and talent, but it was her maturity over the tragic situation that struck a chord with viewers.
“I didn’t know who Ariana Grande was two weeks ago. Now I reckon if we could vote for her, she’d win GE17 on Thursday.” One person commented.
Another said: “Ariana Grande…two weeks ago I’d never heard of her. Now I’d vote for her, join the Arianators and name my kid after her.”
A fake ballot card has been making the rounds on Twitter, with fans – or Arianators – ignoring all the official parties to vote for Ariana Grande instead:

The singer’s show of strength sparked a wave of admiration, with many comparing her traits to that of current politicians. Many pointed out that Grande’s level of maturity clearly surpassed that of Donald Trump’s, whilst others reckoned that she could possibly ‘fix the NHS’ and ‘sort out Brexit’:

I'm worried about how many people would actually vote for Ariana Grande to be prime minister if they had the chance

Best Prime Minister (UK):
Theresa May: 3%
Jeremy Corbyn: 2%
Ariana Grande 95%

Today in History: Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus & Justin Bieber did more to inspire & unite the world than the US President #OneLoveManchester

Can we vote for Ariana Grande on June 8th? Look what she managed to organise in that short time. She'd probably do a better job at Brexit

Wish @ArianaGrande could be our prime minister and fix the NHS, police force and sort out the brexit negotiations

What a world we live in where a 23yr old is pretty much the only person who has actively brought people together. @ArianaGrande is a legend.

Many moments in the concert touched fans’ hearts. From Justin Bieber’s tear-jerking speech to Ariana’s performance with the Parrs Wood High School choir. Hits such as Oasis’s Don’t Look Back In Anger and Black Eyed Peas’ Where Is The Love? were performed, and the concert even managed to unite Liam Gallagher and Chris Martin, despite their past feud.
One Love Manchester raised over £2.3million for the British Red Cross’ We Love Manchester fund, and has been praised by several music stars. Even Piers Morgan has admitted that he initially misjudged Ariana’s character.
Grande’s hit song One Last Time has also reached Number One on iTunes, with at least 76p from each sale being donated to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
