Britney Spears has announced her plans for a second volume of her impactful memoir, titled “The Woman in Me,” set to hit the shelves in 2024. The pop sensation took to Instagram, where she posted a video featuring a man playing a drum-like instrument with a gavel, and in her caption, she unveiled the impending release of Volume 2.
In her caption, she wrote, “Humor is the cure to everything! Play on! Volume 2 will be released next year… get ready!” Despite this enthusiastic announcement, sources close to Spears, as reported by Variety, claim that there is no Vol. 2 currently in the works.
“The Woman in Me,” which initially made its debut on October 24, delves into several revelations from the pop icon’s life. The book details Spears’ experiences, such as undergoing an abortion during her relationship with Justin Timberlake, engaging in passionate encounters with Colin Farrell, and Justin Timberlake’s alleged impersonation of a “blaccent” in front of singer Ginuwine. Additionally, the memoir sheds light on Spears’ forced hospitalization by her father after her refusal to continue her Las Vegas residency dates.
Within the book, Spears candidly expresses the challenges she faced while seeking freedom from her conservatorship. She writes, “My voice had been used for me, and against me, so many times I was afraid nobody would recognize it now if I spoke freely. What if they called me crazy? What if they said I was lying?”
Stephen Rodrick, in his review for Variety, characterizes Spears’ memoir as a lesson on the detrimental impact of the media on young, successful women. He notes, “Talk show hosts and paparazzi have expressed regret over turning the Princess of Pop into a hunted animal and the target of scorn. We discuss how we’ve all learned from this. Don’t be too quick to assume that we have.”
