But Piers is changing his tune after Ariana's emotional 'One Love Manchester' benefit concert for the victims of the attack.
Grande ended the night with all the musicians returning to the stage for a performance of her single "One Last Time", followed by "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".
In a statement after the attack, Grande said: "We will not quit or operate in fear". Headlined by Grande, the show was a star-studded event, which included performances by Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, The Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams, Miley Cyrus and more.
During the show which was aired to millions of people on Sunday, Ariana said: 'I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here today.
In less than two weeks after the May 22 horror, she pulled together Sunday's benefit at the city's Old Trafford Cricket Ground.
The fans also sang some of Grande's songs and wrote messages paying homage to the victims. The three-hour extravaganza raised over £2M ($2.6M). A surprise appearance from Oasis" Liam Gallagher saw the singer perform a rendition of "Live Forever' with Coldplay before throwing his tambourine into the crowd. "The love that we have here is the medicine that we need right now".
