Earlier this Summer, Britney Spears revealed that she would be releasing a tell all memoir, The Woman In Me, about her life thus far.

The pop star has been through some extremely tough experiences, from being thrust into the limelight as an early teen to being placed under a conservatorship for years by her father; an ordeal she described as “abusive” and “demoralising” during the court case where she filed for her freedom.

Now, Britney gets to amplify her voice and share her own perspective with fans in her upcoming autobiography, which will detail what she’s been through.

Her publisher, Gallery Books, have said the book is a “brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith and hope.”

Here’s EYNTK about The Woman In Me.

What does Britney discuss?

While most of the book is being kept under wraps, we’ve received glimpses from PEOPLE magazine about what to expect from The Woman In Me.

We know that Britney will talk about her conservatorship, and her relationship with her family. According to the publication, an excerpt from the book reads, “The conservatorship stripped me of my womanhood, made me into a child. I became more of an entity than a person onstage. I had always felt music in my bones and my blood; they stole that from me.

“This is what’s hard to explain, how quickly I could vacillate between being a little girl and being a teenager and being a woman, because of the way they had robbed me of my freedom.”

Britney goes on to condemn her family for what they have done to her in the damning account, “I think back now on my father and his associates having control over my body and my money for that long and it makes me feel sick. Think of how many male artists gambled all their money away; how many had substance abuse or mental health issues.

“No one tried to take away their control over their bodies and money. I didn’t deserve what my family did to me.”

Another excerpt from Britney’s autobiography reveals that she will be discussing her relationship with fellow pop star Justin Timberlake, including the revelation that she had an abortion while they were together.

“It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy. I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated,” she writes.

“But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young…To this day, it’s one of the most agonising things I have ever experienced in my life.”

PEOPLE also reports that Britney writes of the infamous moment when she shaved her head, and what was going through her head all of those times she was accosted by paparazzi as a young woman.

We’re not sure what else will be detailed in Britney’s book yet, but we can imagine it will be a heartbreaking read considering how hard she’s had it.
