The pop star has been understandably uncomfortable in the public since recovering from her personal troubles a few years back, and has rarely been spotted out and about unless surrounded by multi-person security detail!
And given the amount of paparazzi usually tailing her in such instances, with good reason!
However, the tides have changed for her, as she was photographed on Robertson Blvd in El Lay yesterday with just one bodyguard as she shopped around, looking lovely, entirely relaxed and even smiling for cameras!
Ch-ch-check her out (above)!
We couldn't be more thrilled for her!
She's been through so much, and it's so nice to see her not only thriving professionally, but appearing comfortable and happy in her personal, day-to-day affairs!
Keep it up, gurl!
