Britney Spears has a horseback riding date with Sam Asghari
While most of the pop world was in Grammy Awards mode on Sunday, Jan. 27, Britney Spears was making the most of her time off from music while enjoying the company of her boyfriend of three years, Sam Asghari. On Sunday morning, Brit shared pictures of the two out for a horseback ride in what the Daily Mail suggested appeared to be Calabasas or Thousand Oaks, California. "Prince @samasghari 🤠 & The Southern Star ⭐️ 💚❣️," she wrote alongside the photos. It was the latest exercise-minded update from the 38-year-old singer, who's been sharing videos of her outdoor yoga routines and other workouts for the past few weeks. "I have a lot of things I keep bottled up so I have to keep my body moving …," she shared with her Instagram followers at the beginning of January. Britney announced she was canceling a planned residency in Las Vegas one year prior. At the time, she was concerned about her father's health. She and her dad have since butted heads over the conservatorship her father oversees as Britney's fought for more control over her major life decisions. It's unclear if or when she'll return to music, but as her longtime manager told Variety last spring, Britney's "given so much" to her career. "Let her be a civilian for a while," he said.

Selena Gomez felt Justin Bieber abused her emotionally; her new music helped her move on
Selena Gomez understands that as a public figure, the only way to take charge of her narrative is by being open about her struggles. That goes for everything from the Lupus and kidney transplant she's endured to her high-profile breakups, all of which she touched on in a candid new interview with NPR, telling Lulu Garcia-Navarro, "I want to be able to tell my story the way that I want to tell it." The story Selena shares in her new music on "Rare," of course, deals with her March 2018 split from Justin Bieber, whom she'd dated off and on since the two were kids. Asked if moving on from the relationship has been "one of the harder" parts of her life to close the book on, Selena said, "No, because I've found the strength in it. It's dangerous to stay in a victim mentality. And I'm not being disrespectful, I do feel I was a victim to certain abuse." The interviewer then clarified by asking if Selena meant "emotional abuse." Selena said, "yes," then explained: "I had to find a way to understand it as an adult. And I had to understand the choices I was making. As much as I definitely don't want to spend the rest of my life talking about this, I am really proud that I can say I feel the strongest I've ever felt and I've found a way to just walk through it with as much grace as possible." Her hit single, "Lose You To Love Me," helped her do that, she said. "It has a different meaning to me now from when I wrote it. I felt I didn't get a respectful closure, and I had accepted that, but I know I needed some way to just say a few things that I wish I had said," she explained. "It's not a hateful song; it's a song that is saying — I had something beautiful and I would never deny that it wasn't that. It was very difficult and I'm happy it's over. And I felt like this was a great way to just say, you know, it's done, and I understand that, and I respect that, and now here I am stepping into a whole other chapter."
