SINGAPORE- This is a huge month for a huge star whose life has been an exercise in hugeness.
Huge ambition, huge hair, huge success, huge appetites, huge fall and huge comeback.
For a start, it's her birthday!
US pop star Britney Spears turned 32 on Monday and she finally - FINALLY - seems to have given up acting like she's still an idiotic teen.
She has been behaving reasonably grown-up for a few years now.
She has also been working hard in preparation for Piece of Me, her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas which begins later this month.
"I'm really stoked about it," she told British radio station Capital FM.
"It's gonna be nice to have one place to be at for me and my children and my family."
Speaking of family, Spears also seems to be getting her personal life together, focusing on her two boys - Sean, eight, and Jayden, seven - with ex-hubby Kevin Federline.
Her current beau, David Lucato, works at a law firm.
"I'm in love," she told Entertainment Tonight (ET) recently. "He's just a simple man. I adore him."
On top of all these positive developments in Spears' life, the best thing is that she has been refraining from shaving her head and attacking the paparazzi with umbrellas! Sanity FTW!
Her brief stint on reality TV singing competition The X-Factor last year actually revealed her to be a rather sweet, sensitive and likeable woman.
Who would've thought she's actually NORMAL?
