The pop star’s revealing memoir, The Woman in Me, was published nearly two years after a judge terminated her 13-year court-ordered guardianship.
NEW YORK — Britney Spears finally tells her story in her own words.
Confessions of a pop star Memoir “The Woman Inside Me” will be released on October 24, the publisher announced after more than a year of speculation about the long-awaited book.
The memoir comes after Spears successfully fought to end a 13-year guardianship system that she said was financially and emotionally abusive. Spears was 26 when his father established the guardianship system after a series of public mental health problems.
“I just want my life back,” Spears, now 41, told a judge in 2021, pleading for the conservatorship to be dissolved. Thousands of fans gathered around her courthouse, and thousands online listened to her 20-minute prepared remarks on her audio livestream.
Finally, the guardianship system ended in November 2021.
In February 2022, multiple news outlets reported on a bidding war for Spears’ memoir, with Simon & Schuster publisher Gallery Books paying Spears $15 million.
“In June 2021, the whole world listened to what Britney Spears said in open court,” the publisher wrote on the book’s website. “The impact of sharing her voice, her truth, is undeniable and has changed her life and the lives of countless others.
Spears shared the title and release date on social media on Tuesday, and also unveiled the first ever cover of the book, which features a topless photo of Spears taken in 2001.
According to the publisher’s news release, the memoir will detail Spears’ “incredible journey” and “the enduring power of music and love, and the importance of women telling their stories on their own terms.” It says.
“The woman in me” You can pre-order online.
