     In the early hours of Sunday morning Rihanna turned her Instagram account into a virtual eulogy, posting a string of photos in tribute to her beloved grandmother Dolly.

     The singer had just come off a performance at Sweden's Peace & Love music festival, where she added her melancholy cover of Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" to the set.

     Joyce Hawkins, Chris Brown’s mother tweeted her love and support while Chris himself also sent an emotional tweet saying that Dolly was like his grandmother too.
