Rihanna paid final respects to her grandmother, she affectionately calls GranGranDolly, in Barbados this week.
As widely reported, she passed away earlier this month after losing a long battle with cancer.
Rihanna looked at her grandmother’s funeral as a celebration of life, tweeting “grangrandolly you are going to have the best party today. #allblackerrthang! and I’m gon’ try to hold it all in, try to hold back my tears.”
Rihanna received an outpouring of support from fans and Chris Brown earlier this month and at this point is back to work.
In related news, a teaser for her anticipated reality series titled “Styled To Rock” has been released.
Slated to air on the U.K.’s Sky Living HD next month, the series will showcase Rihanna mentoring rising British designers with her stylist, Lisa Cooper, designer Henry Holland and Nicole Roberts (Girls Aloud). Rihanna is an executive producer on the show as well.
“Fashion has helped shape me into the artist that I am today,” says Rihanna.
