Britney Spears is continuing to indulge herself now that she's free of her 13-year conservatorship, and her most recent outing brought tears to her eyes.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Britney opened up about having a magical dining experience at a "very nice place in Los Angeles."

"I didn't have any expectations at all because I haven't been out in a while," she admitted, but she was blown away by the experience.  "It was absolutely beautiful," she declared.  "I looked up and it was a glass roof, I could see the stars."

The singer took a beat to rave about the "girly" and "beautiful" women's restrooms before going into detail about her fine dining experience.  Britney revealed that restaurant is where she was finally able to enjoy a glass of red wine, her first in 13 years, which was a profound moment for her.

"I felt more sexy in that restaurant than I ever have in my entire life ... Then I look up at the stars.  Wow, is this what I've been missing???," she wrote, adding that the second course -- which she described as a "crunchy sushi with a sweet sauce" -- brought her to tears.  "It made me want to cry, so I did !!! I cried over food in this beautiful restaurant ... I couldn't believe what I was experiencing."

"I will say it was one of the most magical experiences of my life and I will never forget it," Britney added, but declined to reveal the name of the institution.  However, she did provide fans a quick glimpse at the fancy place when sharing a video of her cracking open her dessert, a chocolate tower, with the side of her spoon.

While you were crying to Adele’s album this weekend, she was shedding some tears too.

The singer got emotional during her U.K. special An Evening with Adele when she was surprised by the teacher who changed her life.

Actress Emma Thompson, who was in the audience, helped introduce the surprise by asking Adele if there was anyone from her past who particularly supported or inspired her. Adele began talking about her Chestnut Grove Academy English teacher, Ms. McDonald.

"She was so bloody cool, so engaging," Adele said, adding, "She really made us care, and we knew that she cared about us."

It was then revealed that Ms. McDonald was actually in the audience and Adele welcomed her to the stage, immediately welling up with tears.

"I'm so proud of you," McDonald told her. "Thank you for remembering me."

After briefly catching up and asking to exchange numbers, Adele had to step off stage to have her makeup touched up from crying.

Also over the weekend, Adele got Spotify to make a major change. The music streaming service has removed the shuffle button as the default option when playing albums.

“This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry!” Adele tweeted. “We don’t create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason. Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended. Thank you Spotify for listening.”

Harry Styles once again has helped a fan come out to their mom.

At his concert in Milwaukee Wednesday night, he noticed a fan holding a sign that said, "My mom is in Section 201. Help me come out."

In video of the moment posted to social media, Harry is seen approaching the fan and chatting with her before running across the stage to locate her mom, whose name is Lisa, on the other side of the arena. Once he reached the mom’s area, he announced, "Lisa, she's gay!"

The response, thankfully, was a positive one: Lisa was seen on the big screen blowing kisses and wiping away tears.

Back in 2018, Harry had a similar viral moment when he helped a fan come out to her mom by yelling, “Tina, she’s gay!”
