Two years after Britney Spears was released from her father’s protective custody, the 41-year-old singer is preparing to reveal the shocking truth about this period of her life in a highly anticipated memoir.
Published by Simon & Schuster in the US, “The Woman in Me” will be published tomorrow in about 20 countries and translated into 10 languages. It will be one of the most anticipated releases in bookstores this fall. Each time in such cases, the text of the book is shrouded in great secrecy by the publishing company, which, according to American media, paid more than $15 million to acquire the rights.
“It’s exciting, heartbreaking and moving to relive all of this,” the singer told People magazine, which released the first pages of a book of confessions expected to have a strong impact.
He added: “For all these reasons, I will only read a small part of the audio version of my book,” with actress Michelle Williams reading the rest.
A few days before its release, the book reached number one in Amazon’s pre-order feature in the US and France. The release of promotional excerpts from the work caused several reactions.
On her Instagram account, where she speaks briefly in video clips that show her dancing between furniture, the pop star explained to her more than 42 million followers, “There are a lot of things about the book that are hard to read in the press.” He added: “Nothing else matters at this point.”
Britney Spears’ words come two years after her father began exercising on her in 2008, when she was deeply depressed after separating from her husband, Kevin Federline, with whom she had two sons.
The star remarried in June 2022 before divorcing Sam Askari 14 months later.
The book will also cover the rise of this star who comes from a very humble background without hiding her setbacks. It reminds the artist’s fans of hope that they will understand the course of this broken life.
Britney Spears began her artistic career at the age of 12 at the Mickey Mouse Club. At around 17, she gained international fame with the song “Baby One More Time” from the album of the same title, which included a wide range of hits including “Crazy”.
It was followed by eight more albums, most notably the popular album “Opus I Dead It Again”, which sold 25 million copies. Britney Spears was distinguished by her remarkable performances during concerts, and she undertook huge worldwide tours.
In 2001, Britney Spears joined the late star in a rendition of pop legend Michael Jackson’s (1958-2009) “The Way You Make Me Feel.”
Britney Spears reached a low point in her career in 2007, during a period when she was subject to intense public stalking and constant stalking by celebrity photo hunters. Pictures of him shaving his head at a hair salon went viral around the world. . In 2008, she was placed under the guardianship of her father, who continued to control every aspect of her life until 2021.
A call to liberation
In 2014, Britney Spears began performing regularly in Las Vegas, including more than 200 shows in four years. But the situation worsened again in 2019 when she was forcibly admitted to a rehabilitation center. This sparked a rallying cry among her fans, in addition to supportive press inquiries, to call for “Free Britney”.
In 2021, the court issued a decision to terminate her guardianship after the singer asked judges to “give her back her life.”
