The Woman in Me by Britney Spears

“In Britney Spears’s memoir, she’s stronger than ever.” —The New York Times

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 candor and humor, Spears’s groundbreaking 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.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.
I will start this by saying I have a hard time rating someone’s biography. I read this book at the end of November and sat on it for a few days trying to figure out what I could say.
I know the “Truth” has 3 sides : Yours, Mine, and the actual events.
I know that there are questions about if she really wrote the book, and to that I say I think she did. I felt like, when I listened to the audio, it sounds like how she talks. This book was not written by huge, published author for sure. It is written like how I do my reviews…wordy, jumbly, and like purging on the paper. I knew it wouldn’t be a literary masterpiece, so I am not knocking it at all. But I think it is her version of events.
I think that even if 1% of what she claims about her dad, mom, and sister are true, they are horrible people. I say that based on what I listened too. I always thought Brit and her mom were tight. I don’t know why but I was shocked to hear different from her telling.
Boy oh boy the things she said about JT. Am I shocked? Not really given what happened with Janet and how he threw her under the bus after the Superbowl. Am I shocked at how it all went down when they broke up according to her, yes.
Do I feel for her and her PPD and the treatment of her family to control her money? 110%. The fact no one looked at her after having 2 babies back-to-back is heartbreaking. The fact she has been traumatized by her family for her money under the guise of love and care is horrible.
Again, I am taking what SHE knowing that it can and probably does have a slight spin to it.
