The ‘Toxic’ hitmaker treated fans to the previously unheard outtake from her 2016 album ‘Glory’, which she made available to stream to coincide with her birthday.

The new song comes after it was revealed that Britney “will not perform” whilst her father is her conservator.

The ‘I’m a Slave 4 U’ hitmaker – whose last gig was in October 2018 – recently filed new documents via her lawyer which asked the courts to strip her father, Jamie Spears, from his position as co-conservator of her estate entirely, as she no longer wants him in control of her life and career.

And last month, her lawyer claimed Britney is “afraid” of her dad, and doesn’t want to step foot on stage until he has been ousted from his role as conservator.

During a court hearing on November 10, Samuel D. Ingham III said: “My client has informed me that she is afraid of her father. She also stated that she will not perform as long as her father is in charge of her career. We are really at a crossroads.”

The court hearing was held to determine whether Jamie will remain the co-conservator of Britney’s estate, but Judge Brenda Penny ultimately decided not to suspend Jamie, although she said the matter can be further discussed “down the road.”

Despite her legal battle with her father, Britney – whose fans have launched the #FreeBritney campaign – recently admitted she is “happiest” she’s ever been.

Upon her return to social media after a brief break, the Grammy-winner told her fans she is “fine” and in a great place personally.

In a video for her followers, she said: “Hi, so I know that there have been a lot of comments, and a lot of people saying a lot of different things about me.

“But I just want to let you guys know that I am fine. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.

“And I’m sending all of you guys a lot of prayers, wishes and a lot of love.”

Alabama postal worker surprises birthday boy with gift

OPELIKA, Ala. — When Chip Matthews heard the mail truck arriving on his sixth birthday, he rushed out – not knowing that he’d come back with a treasure.

Outside the house, which was decorated with birthday balloons, mail carrier Tawanna Purter held a pile of boxes. One of them was marked with Chip’s name and a greeting for his special day, Nov. 5.

“So, when he came running out the door, I said: ‘You must be Chip!’ And he was like, yes. I said, ‘Today’s your birthday?’ And he started smiling,” Purter said.

“So, I said, ‘Let me see if I can find you something for your birthday.'” She checked her pocket and surprised him with a gift: a dollar bill and four quarters.

This is the kind of thing Purter does – “I help out anybody, I don’t care,” she said – surprising people with gas or grocery money when they need it, paying forward the kindnesses of others who helped her out when she struggled to keep a job.

On this day, the 42-year-old letter carrier made one little boy very happy.

“He was ecstatic,” said his mom, Bonnie Matthews. “He came running back in the house just waving his money, so excited that he got some birthday money from somewhere extra special and unexpected.”

Chip is saving up to buy a Spider-Man action figure. His mom said the kind gesture gave the Opelika, Alabama, family hope after the long months of pandemic isolation, during which she lost her job as a school counselor.

“Our family, like many families, has endured a lot … has had some pretty significant challenges. And so, gestures like that, I think those are the things, those are the memories that we’re hoping to take away from these nine months,” Bonnie Matthews said.

Her hope is that Chip and his 8-year-old sister, Bennett, will remember this when they grow up. “Not the ugly that was out there right now, but the good and the kind and the giving.”

A photo of a smiling Chip and Purter next to the mail truck has been shared widely on social media. Purter said she was just trying to give back, because people are often nice to her 8-year-old son, Joshua, and sometimes give him a buck or two to brighten his day.

On a recent day, Chip heard the mail truck and rushed out again, this time to deliver an envelope with a thank-you card for his favorite mail carrier. They smiled again and posed for another photo.

“Even though … no one knows how they’re going to make it from here to the next day,” Purter said, “there are still people that … take their time and still want to show kindness.”

Since that day, the families have kept in contact. Purter has struggled to find someone who can take care of her son, and Matthews agreed to watch him at her home so he can attend virtual classes while his mom is on her

On Aditya Roy Kapur’s Birthday, A Gift For Fans: Details Of New Film Om

Kourtney Kardashian flaunted her flawless physique in a surprisingly affordable bikini from an Australian fashion label on sister Kim’s controversial 40th birthday trip. 

The age-defying reality TV star looked decades younger than her 41 years in a green two-piece from Sydney brand Meshki, as her family sparked outrage for escaping the COVID pandemic on a private island in French Polynesia.

In photos taken in the waters of Onetahi, the mother-of-three – who shares daughter Penelope, eight, and sons Mason, 10, and Reign, five, with ex Scott Disick – showcases her killer body in the $49 Cosimo top and $55 Aliza bottoms. 

The $104 set is considerably cheaper than Kourtney’s usual choice of swimwear which typically comes from high-end designers and is often custom-made.

The POOSH founder regularly uploads photos from tropical destinations wearing brands like Oseree and Norma Kamali, where sets cost upwards of $500.

But her bargain buy from Meshki looks just as good.

The halterneck top is embellished with a Noughties-inspired diamond clasp that fastens between triangle cups, a flattering style that lifts the breasts while keeping tan lines to a minimum.

The bottoms – made from nylon and elastane – tie high on the hips with a cheeky cut across the back, exposing a generous glimpse of the derriere.

Meshki publicist Kristina Farkas said demand has skyrocketed since the eldest Kardashian sister’s endorsement.

‘With the large following that Kourtney has, we’ve seen a major uplift in sales for our entire swimwear range,’ Ms Farkas told Daily Mail Australia.

Fans were quick to gush about the swimwear, with comments including ‘this suit is so pretty’ and ‘knockout body’.

‘The green colour really compliments your skin tone,’ one woman said.

Birthday gift from girlfriend wins man a big lottery jackpot

Nov. 10 (UPI) — An Australian man found a small birthday gift from his girlfriend turned into a much larger present when the scratch-off lottery ticket she gave him won a jackpot of nearly $200,000.

The Doonside, New South Wales, woman told The Lott officials she bought the scratch-off ticket from Doonside Newsagency & Post Office to give to her boyfriend as a birthday gift.

“For his birthday, we went out for dinner and we scratched it there and then,” the girlfriend recalled.

She said the ticket appeared to be a winner, but the couple didn’t realize the extent of their luck until they return to the store the following day and found out it they had won $182,116.25.

“We didn’t believe it. We still don’t believe it,” the woman said. “I just keep thinking ‘Oh, my God. Is this real life?’ It’s crazy. It’s still so surreal!”

The couple said they plan to put some of their winnings toward buying new cars and putting a down payment on a house.

Biggest birthday gift to Tejashwi is CM’s throne: Brother Tej Pratap

By Sahil Pandey

Patna (Bihar) [India], November 9 (ANI): The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) has given the biggest gift to Tejashwi Yadav oh his birthday this year — “the chief minister’s throne”, feels his elder brother and party leader Tej Pratap Yadav.

With most exit polls projecting the Opposition-led Grand Alliance as the winner, Tej Pratap’s comment came on Monday, a day before the Bihar poll results.

Tej Pratap said that his confidence of the RJD-led Mahagathbandhan winning the election was not based on the exit poll results but on his interactions with people.

“We have given the biggest gift to Tejashwi, the CM’s post. People have rejected JD(U)’s Nitish Kumar. I do not believe in exit polls as I believe in people,” Tej Pratap said.

About the factors that would decide the course of the elections, he said unemployment, migration of people that pushed Bihar into darkness and Kumar “engaging in corruption, fooling the farmers”, all played a role.

Tej Pratap’s tweet extending greetings to his younger brother Tejashwi on his 32nd birthday on Monday read: “Happy Birthday tutu.. #HBD_CMTejashwi.”

Tej Pratap’s mention of “CM” in the tweet garnered attention, along with several congratulatory posters seen adorning the streets of Patna, the state capital, on Tejashwi’s birthday, a day ahead of the counting.

Counting of votes in Bihar for all the 243 Assembly seats will take place on November 10. The Election Commission of India has made elaborate arrangements for the smooth conduct of the process.

The RJD has warned the party workers against indulging in celebratory firing and “uncivil behaviour” towards rivals on the day, even as the outcome is yet to come. (ANI)
