Rihanna has opened her heart and her wallet this holiday season with a $1 million-plus donation to a hospital in Barbados.
According to E! News, the "Diamonds" singer gave $1.75 million to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown in honor of her late grandmother, Clara "Dolly" Braithwaite, whom Rihanna called "Gran Gran Dolly."
"This was my way of giving back to Barbados, in a form of philanthropy, by assisting the QEH in its continued modernization program," Rihanna said in a statement to E!. "I believe that this will have a huge impact on the people of Barbados. This was all done to save lives, or at least extend them."
With the 24-year-old's donation, the hospital's radiotherapy department has purchased much needed equipment. It is now called the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine in memory of Rihanna's grandmother, who passed away in June after battling cancer.

Rihanna and Chris Brown are at it again.
And by "it" we mean letting the world know that their friendship (or whatever you want to call it) is still going strong. Rihanna posted a picture on her Instagram account of her hugging a man who judging by the tats appears to be Brown.
The caption on the photo reads "f***yopictures i dont wanna leave!!! Killed it tonight baby." f***yopictures looks to be Brown's Instagram account with several pictures of him.
According to EW, Brown was performing in Frankfurt yesterday. Rihanna referenced Frankfurt in the photo proceeding the cuddly one. The same weekend that Brown got into a vulgar Twitter fight which led to him to delete his account, Rihanna posted a pic of what appeared to be Brown in bed.

The tales from press who were aboard Rihanna's tour jet for the past seven days have ranged from hilarious to distraught to some combination of both.
