Over the weekend, Rihanna (who won the 2013 BET Award for  Best Female R&B Pop Artist) had a very emotional reaction to a fan-made poster  dedicated to the memory of her grandmother.  Right before Riri performed in Zurich, she had posted several photos on her Instagram account in tribute to her deceased grandmother,  Clara “Dolly” Braithwaite.  And one special fan offered the bad girl for some emotional support from the crowd by making a sign with Dolly’s face.  And it brought her to tears mid-performance.  On Instagram, Rihanna said,

“Today marks one year since you crossed the bridge! Still you never left…I can still remember your laugh, and I miss it, I miss the sound of your voice, your beautiful hands, the way you danced and got so happy when you heard music, I miss doing your makeup and taking your pictures, I miss the way you looked right at me, and I miss looking back at you, that proud look on your face!”

“Never did I think it could be this soon, but I’m happy you’re in Heaven, laughing and dancing with the Angels! Dolly you are my precious Angel, I love you beyond what words can describe! I just miss you Gran Gran! #Dolly #FirstAnniversary”
