Rihanna's EMOTIONAL Reaction To Fan's TRIBUTE To Her Grandmother + Journalist Liz Jones RESPONDS TO FEMINIST ATTACKS And Rihanna's Pop Back
During a recent concert stop, Rihanna had an emotional reaction to a fan's tribute to her deceased grandmother. See what happened inside and see how Liz Jones, the UK journalist who bashed Rihanna, responded to the nasty tongue lashing that RiRi dished out on Instagram....
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"

A few days ago, we told you about Rihanna lashing out at Liz Jones, a British reporter, who called her a "poisonous pop princess". Now, Liz Jones has responded back. Though what Liz said does not amount to an apology, she does admit that neither she nor Rihanna are good role models for young women.
In her rebuttal, Liz seemed to take issue with Rihanna using a bad pic of her, saying,
"...what really annoyed me was the response of female journalists....published a photograph of me looking my worst, I think when I had dressed up as a homeless person, or perhaps it was from the shoot I had done made up as an 83-year-old."
Also, Liz went on to explain (in her own way) that neither she nor Rihanna are good role models for young women because of the choices they've made in their own lives.
"A British newspaper published a piece headed, ‘So, who is the better role model: Rihanna or Jones?’ Do I really need to point out that the definition of being a role model is that others want to be like you? While I can see why lots of girls want to emulate Rihanna, I can assure you no one wants to be me: old, as we’ve heard, broke, overworked, depressed, lonely, barren, deaf, friendless, pension less, in possession of cellulite and a post-menopausal beard…
I’m not a role model but a scarecrow, warning women that if they do succumb to the temptation of a new Mulberry bag or a facelift it will not make them happy or loved. I wanted to warn of the dangers of looking up to a star like Rihanna, who seems to hold their safety and well-being in disdain, because my life has been ruined by aspiring to be like a supermodel. I starved because models starved. Girls will drink because Rihanna drinks."
