Most A-list megastars are very, very protective of their privacy.
But that’s not the case with Britney Spears.
For years, Britney’s public persona was filtered through the conservatorship controlled by her father.
These days, the pop icon is making up for lost time in a big way — basically sharing every triumph and setback she encounters with her legion of adoring fans.
When Britney’s own sons turned against her, she shared her thoughts on the harrowing ordeal with surprising and admirable candor.
When Britney was body-shamed by her own personal trainer, she recounted the painful incident to her 42 million Instagram followers.
Now, Britney has signed a $15 million deal to publish her debut memoir — and those who are familiar with the project say that it’s much, much more than just a celebrity tell-all.
“Britney’s book is a story of triumph. It will cover her most vulnerable moments, her childhood – being a little girl with big dreams – her breakup with Justin Timberlake, the moment she shaved her head, and her battle with her family over her conservatorship,” one source told Page Six.
“It is also a story of survival, finding her way out of the crippling conservatorship to finding happiness with her husband Sam Ashgari,” the insider added.
“Britney’s book is brutally honest and from the heart. No stone is left unturned. Its truly a female empowerment story – her taking control of her life.”
“This book is a gift….There are parts of this book that every person—particularly every woman—can relate to and feel less alone. She transforms joy and pain into something transcendent: art,” said a second publishing source.
“This is an inspiring read, not only because it shows the strength of Britney’s spirit, but because her story is told with such style, wit, intelligence, honesty, and without any self-pity. She is entirely winning in these pages,” the insider added.
“This book will….shake the world. I believe that it will also be a groundbreaking instant bestseller.”
Obviously, it sounds like these sources have a vested interest in promoting the book, but there’s reason to believe that Britney’s literary debut will indeed be much more compelling reading than the typical A-list memoir.
Britney has been through an awful lot in her life, and her willingness to speak bluntly to fans is almost unprecedented in Hollywood history.
The friends and family who betrayed Britney probably won’t be fans of her book.
But you can be sure the publishers will get a nice return on their investment.
Once again, Britney comes out on top.
