Britney Spears was glowing in new photos that showed the pop star posing on her electric bike, joined by her precious pup Porscha.

Britney Spears, 40, was ready to go for a ride in new photos that she shared to Instagram on Monday, January 3. The Grammy Award-winning singer happily posed on her electric bike, while turning behind to smile at the camera. Britney rocked pink short shorts and a cropped white top, as well as stylish sunglasses and white and orange sneakers. She kept her signature blonde hair done up in a ponytail, seemingly to keep avoid any incident of vision obstruction for her joyride.

Britney also had a special guest join her for the bike photoshoot. The singer and her fiancé Sam Asghari‘s adorable Doberman puppy, Porscha, sweetly jumped up to Britney in two of the photos. As Porscha pressed her paws against Britney’s thigh, the “Toxic” songstress petted her pup just under his chin. Porscha disappeared for the final snapshot, allowing Britney to proudly pose on her bike all by her lonesome. She used three pink ribbon emojis to caption her joyful post.

Britney has been in good spirits ever since her 13-year-long conservatorship ended in November. She’s been dancing up a storm on Instagram, while also enjoying time spent with her soon-to-be hubby. On Dec. 27, Britney and Sam enjoyed a romantic dinner at Los Angeles’ Catch. An eyewitness told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that Britney “couldn’t stop smiling” during the date night.

However, Britney is still not on good terms with her family. She’s estranged from mom Lynne Spears, dad Jamie Spears, and sister Jamie Lynn Spears due to their apparent lack of support during the controversial conservatorship, which dominated her life for 13 years. Britney has cut her loved ones out of her life, even going as far as recently unfollowing her sister on Instagram.

A source recently told HL, “Britney has no plans to reconcile with her sister, mother, or her father at this time and she doesn’t foresee herself having a future with any of them, as they all, directly or indirectly, are responsible for the years of psychological torment that she went through. They all allowed this to continue knowing that it was hurting her. She doesn’t see how this will ever be forgivable because, if not for her fans and those who truly love her, she would still be in the conservatorship.”

Creating tangible records of weather patterns has been a long-running practice for crafters and designers interested in visually documenting the effects of the climate crisis over time. Daniera ter Haar and Christoph Brach, of the Eindhoven, The Netherlands-based studio Raw Color, join this endeavor with their new collection of knitted goods that embed data about temperature changes, the sea’s rising levels, and emissions directly within their products’ patterns.

In each design, the duo translates data from the IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, into colorful, line graphics that represent four possible outcomes for the world through the year 2100. The titular Temperature Textiles rely on warm shades, sea level uses cool blues, purples, and greens, and emissions a combination of the two to visualize the changes.

Raw Color shares more specifics about the data behind Temperature Textiles on its site, where you can also shop the collection of flat and double knits. Follow the studio on Instagram to keep up with its latest designs. (via Design Milk)

An Annual ‘Giant Letter’ Installation Displays a Heartfelt Note from a 100-Foot-Tall Boy Named Bobby

Every year on December 12, a handwritten letter on oversized lined paper appears on a residential lawn in Chicago or Austin. The massive constructions, which stand between 8- and 12-feet high, are part of an ongoing project that shares heartfelt messages between an imaginary 100-foot-tall boy named Bobby and those who matter most in his life (aka his mother Lucinda, cat Mr. McFluffins, and Santa).

Chicago-based artists Caro D’Offay and Laura Gilmore began Giant Letter back in 2012 as a way to connect with their community following the tragic killings at Sandy Hook Elementary. Marj Wormald joined the pair a few years later, and together, they’ve installed 10 iterations. “We’re trying to create an atmosphere,” D’Offay said in an interview. “The person standing there can in a way feel very small but also have big emotions. It can be transformative for someone, and they’re just walking their dog.”

During its decade-long run, Giant Letter displays have included microscopes and astronomy books, huge pencils and cups of tea, and of course, chocolate chip cookies and milk. Every piece also sets a “Bobby box” nearby that encourages visitors to drop in messages they’d like to share with the child. In the most recent version installed at the intersection of Glenwood and Albion avenues in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood, a 35-foot tool stretches alongside a letter from Bobby’s mother detailing her cancer diagnosis. “I know this is a much bigger tape measure than you probably need but I want you to dream big and make giant magic!” it reads.

Organizers say the 2021 installation will stay in its current spot indefinitely, although they’re hoping to transfer the project to a museum or gallery in the future. You can follow their progress on Instagram.
