“In Britney Spears’s memoir, she’s stronger than ever.” —The New York Times
The Woman in Me is a brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope.
In June 2021, the whole world was listening as Britney Spears spoke in open court. The impact of sharing her voice—her truth—was undeniable, and it changed the course of her life and the lives of countless others. The Woman in Me reveals for the first time her incredible journey—and the strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop music history.
Written with remarkable candor and humor, Spears’s groundbreaking book illuminates the enduring power of music and love—and the importance of a woman telling her own story, on her own terms, at last.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
It’s no exaggeration to say we’ve been waiting to hear Britney Spears tell her own story for decades. In The Woman in Me, the pop star finally pulls back the curtain, showing us the private realities behind her all-too-public life. That story begins tragically early—she began supporting her family as a child star in part because her alcoholic father Jamie Spears couldn’t hold down a job. As she walks us through her experiences with superstardom, her relationships with Justin Timberlake (who does not come off well) and dancer Kevin Federline, and her eventual imprisonment in a 13-year conservatorship by her father, it’s her family’s continual gaslighting and abuse that remain heartbreakingly constant, even beyond the shocking restraints of the conservatorship itself. (She literally ate chicken and canned vegetables every night for two years because Jamie controlled her meals.) Oscar nominee Michelle Williams interprets Spears’ playfulness, despair, and well-earned rage like she’s playing the singer in a feature film. This memoir is what #FreeBritney was all about, and it proves we were right to worry.
I appreciate you so much more Britney can’t wait for volume 2
Very Good Book
I have always loved Britney and I am so incredibly saddened how she has been treated by the people who should have loved her and protected her. I applaud her strength and fearlessness for freeing herself from those toxic people. Quick read and a must if you are a fan.
Thanks for speaking the true bri
