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"


In other Rihanna news......

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."

VERSACE FACE OFF: Nicki Minaj VS. Amber Rose

Posted: 01 Jul 2013 06:36 AM PDT

 photo ambervsnickiversace_zpsefeb9547.jpg

Amber Rose slipped her post baby bod into a flirty Versace dress for last night's 2013 BET Awards.  But Nicki Minaj rocked it first a few months ago on "American Idol."  Decide if it was Nicki or Amber who rocked it best....



Last night's winner of BET/Colagte's "Best Face" Award, Amber Rose, rocked this summery yellow & black perforated Versace "Memphis" dress to walk the red carpet with her fiance' Wiz Khalifa.  She added a strappy black heel, kept her hands clutch-free, and added a pop of pink lipstick to accent her face.

But it was Nicki Minaj who first rocked the cute $1620 dress.  Back in March, the rapstress posted a Twitter snap of herself heading into "Idol" to perform her judging duties.  And she also rocked--from what we can see--black shoes with an ankle strap.  She also rocked a pop of pink lipstick and only carried her phone  And she kept her long blonde wig with black roots bone straight for the occasion.

Before hitting the stage to perform, Ciara walked the red carpet in Lorraine Schwartz jewels, her silver Saint Laurent pumps, and a Saint Laurent combo of a leather pencil skirt and barely-there leather cop top as she posed it up with her man Future.

We're sorta used to rappers getting into altercations at awards shows....but there were a few female "stars" (and we use that term VERY loosely) showing their ratchetness tonight. Out on the red carpet, "Celebrity Apprentice" alum Claudia Jordan filed a police report alleging that the mother of her frenemy Omarosa, punched her!

TMZ reports that Omarosa and Claudia had an all out war of words on the red carpet and the "B" word was thrown around a lot.  Following the verbal fight, sources claims that Omarosa's mom jumped in and punched Claudia in the arm!  Of stepped in and Claudia filed a police report!   She later tweeted, "Wow, that awkward moment when you're assaulted on the red carpet."

But, Omarosa told TMZ that Claudia started the incident by pushing her 65-year-old mother!

“I am deeply saddened by Claudia Jordan actions at the BET Awards. After all that my family and I been through this year. She should show at least an ounce of decency and respect “

We'll let you know if they met up in the parking lot after the awards let out! #ratchetbehavior

If y'all ask "Who?" after reading this....hilar.
