But talking about it is still too much for the 25-year-old hitmaker.
Ariana broke down crying as she tried to explain the impact it has had on her life and the lives of so many others in an interview with Ebro Darden.
She revealed that her track Get Well Soon from her new Sweetener album was a message to all her fans.
'Yeah, ya know, it's just about being there for each other and helping each other,' she said as she fought the tears, adding, 'there's some dark s*** out there man.'
The star said she hated the extra security measures she has to take to feel safe, including scanning everyone in the audience, 'but that's the way it has to be now.'
