Ariana was on Ebro's show on Beats 1 Radio Friday when he asked about her track "Get Well Soon" from her "Sweetener" album, and the importance of it to her in relation to last year's terror attack.

The singer's instantly overcome with emotion, but manages to get into how she -- and so many others -- have internal issues we're all dealing with ... and the song is meant to give everyone a hug.

But, she admits she's been deeply affected by the traumatic incident in Manchester, saying ... "It's like people are permanently affected by this s**t and it’s just like, perspective. It changes everything, changes your life quite a bit."

Ariana says she tries not to give into fear for her fans, but the truth is ... she's scared. She says she feels it when she travels and hates the extra security measures she has to take to feel safe, but that's the way it has to be now.

22 people were killed in the Manchester bombing. Less than a month later, Ariana was joined by stars like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Liam Gallagher to put on the One Love concert in Manchester to honor the victims.

EXCLUSIVE

The ugly war of words between Nicki Minaj and Safaree could come to a head if the exes run into each other at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, but there's a plan in place to avoid that ... TMZ has learned.

Nicki and Safaree will be at the VMAs Monday night in NYC -- she's performing and he's repping VH1 -- so both will be doing press on the carpet outside Radio City Music Hall beforehand.

It will be the first time the 2 will be in the same vicinity since Safaree claimed Nicki stabbed him and tried to kill him. She fired back, calling him a thief and a liar.

We're told people in charge of security at the event are well aware of the bad blood, and extra measures -- including more guards -- are being taken to ensure the 2 don't have any interaction ... and no nasty confrontation.

Too bad ... sounds like it would be ratings gold.

Steve Wozniak went up against the real-life "Molly's Game" ringleader, but the look on his face says it all ... he can win the pot like the best of 'em.

The Woz and Molly Bloom spoke at the cryptocurrency convention, ChainXChange, at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, but had a meeting of the poker minds backstage before going onstage.

Molly ran a high-stakes poker game back in the day at the famed Viper Room in L.A. ... frequented by celebs like Ben Affleck, Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio ... and the freakin' Russian mob.

Probs why Molly played it so cool.
