Now the singer is opening up even further about the recent events, and how it’s made her rethink the way she protects her own fans at her concerts during a recent appearance on the Today Show in New York.

Miley admitted, “Now I realize that I need to know that I’m around a lot of people and to protect myself and protect everyone that’s here.”

“I think I take that more seriously. I will be more cautious rather than, you know, I don’t really roll with a team, a crew or a security team or whatever. Now I think, not only for my safety but for everyone else, it’s really been a real eye opener,” she continued to say.

The singer also revealed that although she hasn’t had a chance to talk to her good friend Ariana Grande, she’s thinking of her every single day. Miley said, “for my friend Ariana, it’s just beyond me. And I can’t wait till I get a second to give her a big hug for sure.”

Miley’s words come on the heels of Ariana announcing she will be holding a benefit concert in Manchester to help everyone who has been affected by this terrible event. Although the “Wrecking Ball” singer hasn’t commented on her friend’s recent announcement, we’re certain she’ll be showing her support in any way that she can.

We continue to send thoughts and prayers to those who have been affected by this terrible attack.
