Britney Spears announces she is writing a book as she describes creative process ‘healing and therapeutic’ before blasting her family for their own memoirs
Over a month after it had been reported she would be penning a tell-all, Britney Spears has officially confirmed she is writing a book.
Spears announced her book plans in a lengthy Instagram post on Monday, where she called writing the project ‘healing and therapeutic.’
In February, Page Six reported that Spears was writing a memoir after inking a book deal said to be worth as high as $15 million.
Spears revealed her big book news in a post where she blasted her sister and mother for writing their own memoirs.
It’s on! Britney Spears confirmed she was writing a book over a month after her multi-million dollar book deal had been reported
‘I want to address my recent post captioning my past … to my understanding, to most it’s confusing … why express NOW ??? Well I’m writing a book at the moment and as it’s actually healing and therapeutic… it’s also hard bringing up past events in my life … I’ve never been able to express openly !!!’
Britney also said she would taking the ‘intellectual approach’ her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake took when he issued an apology to her and Janet Jackson last year.
‘I can only imagine that I do sound childish but I was extremely young when those events took place … and addressing it now … I’m sure it seems irrelevant to most and I’m completely aware of that !!! But instead of using my head … I’m using the intellectual approach as Justin so respectfully did when he apologized to Janet and me … although he was never bullied or threatened by his family … he took the opportunity to apologize 20 years later !!!
‘Timing is EVERYTHING !!! Good timing is the B*TCH!!! Anyway … I wanted to just let people KNOW I CARE !!! AND I’M SO SORRY !!! My mom and sister also did the “intellectual approach” in indulgence by writing their own books as I couldn’t even get a cup of coffee or drive my car or really anything !!!

‘I’m not the type of person to bring up UNCOMFORTABLE CONVERSATIONS well because it’s just NOT RESPECTFUL … but come on LET’S ACTUALLY TALK ABOUT IT !!!’
In the lengthy post, Spears compared the team running her conservatorship -including her father Jamie Spears, who was at the helm of the arrangement – to a ‘cult’.
‘As I got older the head powers in my conservatorship were literally unbelieveable … Yes the security, the management and mainly my father who was NEVER AVAILABLE all felt like a CULT !!! I see now the greed and envy of men and the damage people of power can do !!!’
She also recounted several incidents which left her feeling powerless, including a trip to Target during the pandemic.
Britney drove an hour to the store but was instructed to reman inside the car by her father and ‘a lady’ as her security went in instead.
‘When I was in Louisiana during COVID-19, I went Target to pick things up at the store… I live in the sticks so it was an hour drive !!! When I finally got there I was told by a lady and my father that I could not get out of the car … my security got out of the car and I WAITED !!!! Hundreds of kids and adults going in !!! I’ve never felt more like nothing in my life … of course they say now they never did that because they forgot !!!’
In another instance, three of Britney’s childhood friends visited her in Las Vegas during her residency.
Britney says her friends went to the spa but, as she was not allowed inside, was forced to wait outside for an hour as they treated themselves to manicures, pedicures, and a bottle of champagne.
‘They all go to a spa and I wait for an hour as they get their nails and toes done and get offered champagne… I wasn’t allowed to go to the spa so I sat outsie and waited … not only did they not even LOOK MY WAY OR ACKNOWLEDGE me or show any concern … they drank the whole bottle !!!’
