Yes, Rihanna Shares New Falcon Tattoo, Tweets from Ailing Grandmother's Bedside
Rihanna's been laying low the past couple of weeks, having postponed a trip to the UK in order to spend more time with her grandmother, Dolly Braithwaite, who is in a New York City hospital battling cancer. But the singer hasn't totally abandoned the spotlight: She's been very active on Twitter, where she posts intimate updates on her life for her nearly 21 million followers.
On Saturday, Rihanna posted a picture of her latest tattoo, an intricate falcon etched on her ankle. The singer shed light on her choice of ink via Instagram caption, writing, "Falcon: a light that shines in the darkness! Never close their eyes during sleep." The following day, the performer posted a series of pictures of herself with her grandmother with heartbreaking lines like, "My heart smiled and cried all at once." She also shared a rather silly photo of her granny sporting a TrukFit cap (courtesy Lil Wayne).
