With just days to go until the UK General Election, many are calling for Ariana Grande to become the next British prime minister.
She took to the stage on Sunday night at the One Love Manchester concert, stealing the nation’s hearts on once of the country’s darkest days.
Social media users have been urging the electorate to vote for Grande on Thursday. And although Grande’s name might not be on the ballot, here’s why she’d make a damn fine prime minister:
She managed to unite the United Kingdom
The UK has arguably been feeling more divided than united lately — in no small part because of Brexit and the not-so-joyous snap General Election. But on Sunday night, Ariana Grande did something that many politicians have tried and failed to do: she brought the nation together. The benefit concert was organised in the space of week, drawing some of the biggest stars in the business.
“Ariana should become the new prime minister because she’s the only person that’s united the United Kingdom” – my dad💛 #OneLoveManchester

She reduced the nation to tears with the help of a choir
Grande performed with the Parrs Wood High School Choir from Manchester and it’s safe to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
During Grande’s performance with the choir, the 12 year-old soloist, Natasha Seth, appeared overcome with emotion while trying to continue her performance alongside Grande. As soon as Grande spotted, she pulled Seth towards her and ended the song with a hug. Brb, sobbing.
Her mum stood with fans and told them not to be afraid
While Grande was performing, her mum was making her way through the crowd telling fans to not be afraid. Joan Grande for Home Secretary?
She reunited Liam Gallagher and Chris Martin
Liam Gallagher and Chris Martin haven’t always seen eye to eye. Indeed, Gallagher previously compared Martin to a “geography teacher” and “vicar”. But, the pair buried the hatchet at One Love Manchester to perform Live Forever.
She brought us hope in a very dark hour
Less than 24 hours after the UK’s third terror attack in three months, Grande’s concert went ahead, bringing us the symbol of strength and defiance when we needed it the most. As Grande and her friends paid tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, a policeman danced with children in the crowd.
Most heartwarming of all was Grande’s tributes to the victims in between her performance. Grande talked about her interactions with the families of the victims, and how they influenced the planning of the show.
Remember. This Thursday vote Ariana Grande for Prime Minister.
