Britney Spears’ Memoir to be Launched on October 24th
The Simon & Schuster subsidiary Gallery Books is the publisher of The Woman in Me. After a competitive bidding battle with several other publishing firms, the publishers were successful in obtaining the book’s rights. Pre-orders for the memoir can be made here.
As she discussed the book, Jennifer Bergstrom, Senior Vice President and Publisher of Gallery Books, said: “Britney’s compelling testimony in open court shook the world, changed laws, and showed her inspiring strength and bravery.”
“I have no doubt that her memoir will have a comparable effect and be the year’s biggest publishing event. We are beyond thrilled to have assisted her in sharing her tale at last,” she continued. The Woman in Me is “a brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope,” according to a press statement from the publishers.
The book recounts “her incredible journey [and] strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop music history and illuminates the enduring power of music and love” (according to the press announcement), among other things. It also stresses the significance of a woman sharing her own narrative, on her terms.
Spears Signed a $15 Million Deal with the Publisher
In February of last year, the Gimme More singer agreed to a record $15 million contract with Gallery Books. The agreement is reportedly one of the most expensive contracts ever. At the time, a source said, “The deal is one of the biggest of all time, behind the Obamas.”
Spears acknowledged that she was writing her autobiography in April 2022. Well, I’m now writing a book, and it’s genuinely therapeutic and healing. It is difficult to bring up previous instances in my life. I’ve never been able to speak my mind out loud!! I know I seem juvenile, but I was really little when those things happened,” she wrote on Instagram.
The Memoir will Focus on the Singer’s Fight with Conservatorship
The publication of the book comes nearly two years after Spears’ 14-year court-ordered conservatorship ended. Due to worries about her mental health, the singer was placed under a conservatorship by her father Jamie Spears in 2007.
Later reports that Spears was being kept in conservatorship against her will sparked the online #FreeBritney movement. In the summer of 2021, the pop artist eventually spoke out against the edict, saying, “I’ve been in shock. I’ve been traumatised. All I want is my life back.
In November 2021, the conservatorship was ultimately ended. Since then, Spears has talked openly about the challenges she faced over the years. “They killed me literally. They abandoned me. I had that impression. She remarked, “I felt like my family had abandoned me.
