The Woman in Me: Britney Spears

£11.40£23.80 (-52%)

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’ – 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’ – 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

    I always struggle to rate autobiographies – how can you rate someone’s story? How can I judge what they thought was important enough to share from their life and what wasn’t? Having said that, after finishing The Woman In Me I didn’t feel that I could rate this anything less than 5 stars.

    I couldn’t help but feel so much sadness and anger reading about what she went through. I feel like going into this I already knew a lot about the events in Britney’s life but hearing her share her story gave such insight. Britney didn’t seek to explain much in this book, but rather I feel like she just provided some context for what we’ve already been told and the context really shows just how awful the media and her family were to her. And what’s crazy is I remember so many of the events unfolding in real time and the narrative the media told which in today’s context is just wild. Britney was treated horribly and she so effortlessly showed the insane sexism, misogyny, abuse, and prejudice she suffered by simply recounting a handful of experiences. It was clear to me at least that this autobiography isn’t even the half of what she’s experienced and yet there was so much sadness and mistreatment I don’t even know where to begin.

    In terms of the actual writing, I do feel like it left a lot to be desired. The first half felt like a whistle stop tour of her accomplishments, which I suppose was it’s purpose in many ways as it’s clear in the later half that the conservatorship was where Britney wanted to dedicate more of her time discussing.
    Even the later half only really skimmed the surface on what Birtney endured during the years of her conservatorship. The whole book was really quite short and I feel like we have only been given a taste of what she has experienced – which is frustrating as a reader but which is so empowering as a fan. It feels like Britney was in control of sharing what she did and did not want to share here, which we know hasn’t been something she has been allowed to do in far, far too long. So while The Woman In Me wasn’t as deep and thorough as I wanted, I also love knowing that we have only been given exactly what Britney wanted to give; and not a drop more.

    I loved how this ended and getting to hear Britney’s philosophy on her life now. I just hope she really is free now and is living her life the way she wants because god knows she deserves to!

    The entertainment industry in all its horror coming to light again and again, where predatory monsters pull all the strings in the background. Big legal questions about the setup of that conservatorship from the basis for it to the blatant conflicts of interests. I found the book jaw dropingly dark but also that she somewhat glossed over and minimized the gravity or her mental health issues that have not all gone away which is no surprise when someone is so ruthlessly and criminally exploited from childhood by those who should have helped and protected her. She’s had everything robbed from her, her childhood, her freedom, her children, her money, her mental health etc. Add to that levels upon levels of trauma including generational. You can take the girl out of the abuse but taking the abuse out of the girl is another thing entirely and now she has her life back she doesn’t seem to know very well what to do with it. Tall order to start from scratch at 40. You get a feel for the essence of her being throughout the book, a sunny, generous, kind, goofy, open and hard working soul. This book also says a lot about the toxic white paternalistic culture of the southern states even if it’s not articulated openly. Staggering darkness behind the glossy public image!

    No matter how much you avoid celebrity gossip it has been impossible to avoid seeing the struggles that Britney Spears has gone through over the years. Ever since Britney shot to fame her life has been broadcasted in a biased, sensationalised and I have no doubt, often if not mostly untrue version of events. With this book Britney is finally able to tell her story her way. She is able to talk us through events, showing them from her perspective and understanding.

    I began reading this book with curiosity. Through this journey I was at times happy for Britney, worried for her, horrified and just so very sad for her. Emotions were high and varied. I felt so angry by how people that she trusted, who should have supported her, betrayed her and worked against her. Take away the famous name and advertise this as a novel, and you could be forgiven for putting this on the shelf with thrillers. There is so much in this journey that an author could use it as a framework for a series of books across a range of genres.

    Britney tells her story simply and to the point. Events are expanded upon and I have gained a much greater understanding of who Britney is as a person and what she has gone through. I am horrified that these things happened to her, and are still happening to others. I hope that Britney is able to overcome the traumas she has suffered, find true friends who will support her, and I hope that her life from now on is a happy one.
