Britney Spears looked happy as she flashed a smile in her first public outing since the release of her tell-all memoir, “The Woman In Me.“
In new photos taken Saturday in West Hollywood, Calif., the “Toxic” singer appeared in great spirits while heading to celeb hotspot Chateau Marmont with pal Cade Hudson.
Spears also carried her latest furry friend, Snow, whom she adopted in August after estranged husband Sam Asghari took custody of one of their five dogs following their contentious divorce.
The Grammy-winning artist dressed in her autumn best for the lunch outing, sporting a figure-hugging orange dress with light brown boots.
Spears also donned her signature Aviator sunglasses, tying her afternoon look together with a large white purse.
The outing marked the first time fans have seen Spears out and about since the successful Oct. 24 release of “The Woman In Me.”
While Spears has been making headlines this year for a myriad of reasons — including dancing with (prop) knives and still looming divorce drama — all eyes shifted to the pop star’s heartfelt story upon the book’s release.

One of the excerpts that caught the nation’s attention was Spears’ admission to getting an abortion during her highly publicized relationship with Justin Timberlake.
“I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated,” Spears, 41, wrote in her memoir, explaining that Timberlake, 42, “definitely wasn’t happy” when he learned about her pregnancy.
“He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young.”
Continuing, Spears wrote, “I’m sure people will hate me for this, but I agreed not to have the baby. I don’t know if that was the right decision. If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”
