Rihanna lands in New York City (October 1, 2012)

*Rihanna made a stop in Brooklyn today to visit the home of her late grandmother for the first time since her death in June.


The singer was devastated when Clara “Gran Gran Dolly” Braithwaite lost her battle with cancer this summer. In her memory, Rihanna tatted up her abdomen with the image of the Egyptian goddess Isis.

According to her Twitter account, she’s back in Brooklyn helping to organize her grandma’s belongings  – and of course shared a photo of the experience with her followers.

“Im back at grangrandollys for the first time without her going through her stuff (sic),” she tweeted, along with the below pic of herself looking through Braithwaite’s photo albums and scrapbooks.
