The Woman in Me is published by Simon & Schuster in hardback at £25.

Britney Spears

The Woman in Me

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 candour and humour, Spears’s ground-breaking 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.

“The sharpness of her perspective is a miracle… May her truth pose a legitimate threat to the system that exploited her.” — The Guardian.

“Britney Spears holds nothing back in her short, bittersweet and extremely powerful memoir. That it hasn’t turned into a complete tragedy is a testament to Spears’s essential fortitude of spirit – something that burns off these pages.” — The Telegraph.

“Spears’s prose contains more compassion and perspective than bitterness or self-pity.” — The Times.

“It’s nearly impossible to come out of it without empathy for and real outrage on behalf of Spears, whose admitted bitterness over the dire circumstances of the last decade-plus of her life is tempered by an enduring, insistent optimism.” — New York Times.
