Singer Lea Michele, who you will probably recognise from her time on the show Glee, recently got a new set of cutetattoosto honor Cory Monteith, her former boyfriend andGleecostar, and her grandma, who recently passed away.
Cory Monteith sadly died in July of 2013, shocking Glee fans and the world alike. He and Lea were together for about a year and a half before his death.
The tattoo for her grandma is a small coffee cup, which Lea explained in the accompanying caption. “She wasn’t your typical grandma,” Lea wrote.“She gave me my first cup of coffee when I was 8 years old. She said something inappropriate to every boyfriend I’ve ever had. She never made pie or knit me a sweater. But she was my grandma and I loved her.”
I lost my beautiful grandma this week.. She wasn’t your typical grandma. She gave me my first cup of coffee when I was 8 years old. She said something inappropriate to every boyfriend I’ve ever had. She never made pie or knit me a sweater. But she was my grandma and I loved her… More than anything.. I love you Grandma. @prospect_tattoos Bronx NY

In a recent interview, Lea spoke about life after Cory. She remembered him fondly:
“From the minute I met Cory, I was like, This is the most handsome man I’ve ever seen in my whole life,”
She went on to say:
“A lighthouse doesn’t save the ships; it doesn’t go out and rescue them, it’s just this pillar that helps to guide people home. Someone once told me that, and I love the image.
Lately, I’ve been using it as a guiding metaphor.”
Sorry… I think there’s some dust in my eye. Nope, it’s definitely hay fever.
