Sadly, Katy Perry's Grandma Ann Hudson has passed away recently. The singer, who is obviously extremely close with her much loved Grandma, took to Instagram to share a heartfelt tribute.
"Ann Pearl Hudson was a fighter." she said in her post.
"She survived the Great Depression, raised 3 kids on her own as a seamstress, making G strings for showgirls and other such characters in Vegas. She was always authentically herself, funny and full of all the sweet cozy things you think of when you think of grandmas. She gave me crisp dollar bills in hallmark cards, she let us eat her favorite almond cookies from the 99 cent store while we asked questions about the different fans she had displayed on her walls. She was a wonderful grandma and I will forever carry some of her in me."
"When my whit comes out, that’s Ann.
When my authenticity comes out, that’s Ann.
When my stubbornness comes out, hell, that’s Ann.
When my fighter spirit comes out, that’s Ann.
When my style comes out, that’s Ann."
"May she rest in deep peace and kiss the forehead of the soul to come and let them know everything is gonna be OK, especially now that they have gained an angel to look over them."
