Britney Spears has confirmed that her “say it all” book will arrive later this year in a new Instagram post.
The pop star signed a deal with publishers worth $15m (£12.2m) in February 2022, after his conservatorship ended.
In a post shared on Instagram yesterday (May 7), Spears spoke candidly with her followers about “secrets,” how other people told her story, and her decision to write about her experiences herself. At one point, she revealed that the memoir will be released “at the end of this year.”
“I want to talk about secrets!!!” she wrote. “The secrets I’ve had to hold for the past 15 years, I will say, are honestly chilling.” She continued, “I had so many complaints that I wanted to share and bring up only to be told to shut up…but wait, that’s not what a smart woman is supposed to do. Express yourself, rise to the occasion and make people think.
“Then I started going mad angry ALL THIS TIME!!! Then all the money offers to tell my side of the story…and all the documentaries were rubbish! I’m sure that was the ignition to get me going, but honestly, I just wanted to spit in the face of anyone who came near me.
She added: “Damn maybe now I’ll need guardianship?! I’m fucking fucking crazy JUST KIDDING… Well not really!!! But I said.. just do a book…easiest way possible and given my fear of people I might have to write them off for the next decade!!!Sit down and share my story might not be the thing safer for anyone!!!My book is coming out at the end of this year…Once it’s out I don’t know what’s going to happen people!!!
Last month, the pop icon shared her thoughts so far on the writing process in a since-deleted Instagram post. “I’m writing a book right now and since it’s actually healing and therapeutic…it’s also difficult to bring up past events in my life…I’ve never been able to express myself openly,” she wrote.
“I can only imagine that I look childish, but I was extremely young when these events took place…and I’m talking about it now…I’m sure it seems out of place for most of them and I am fully aware of that!”
Meanwhile, in March, Spears vowed to continue her fight for justice over her conservatorship, saying those responsible “got away with it”.
