    Open Book av Jessica Simpson (sundancer)
    sundancer: These are two very different memoirs but both share a few things in common: both are written by pop teen idols in the 90s who both went through a lot of struggles including addiction and family issues, divorce, media hounding them everywhere they turn, and both women clung to their faith in God as their source of strength.… (mer)

It's always a challenge for me to rate a memoir because how do you "rate" someone's life experiences? BUT I will say I've learned that I shouldn't necessarily be rating their life but moreso I should be rating the book itself. Not the author but the author's writing/language style, characters, engaging plot, setting, pacing, thorough editing, research and overall enjoyment are a few of the basic aspects I critique.

With that being said...

I have always admired Britney Spears as a pop icon and now a survivor. I do feel horrible for Britney, as no person should ever have to live through the experiences she passed for. I respect her courage and resilience to sit down and relive the pain. That is never an easy task. In doing so, I hope this book helps others that might relate. I'm incredibly happy for her that she now can live freely and continue to heal, BUT this book just didn't cut it for me.

I was curious and eager to read Britney Spear's memoir, The Woman in Me, ho to get some insight into her life and care and how she overcame the challenges shefaced. Unfortunately, I felt like this was a self-indulgent rant than a genuine reflection. The book is poorly written, with many grammatical errors, repetitions, and contradictions. Spears jumps from one topic to another, without any clear structure or coherence. She spends a lot of time blaming others for her problems, especially her father, who she portrays as a greedy and abusive villain, but I kept asking myself, "Why do you keep staying and dealing with the nonsense?" She also paints herself as a victim of the media, the public, and the legal system, without acknowledging her own mistakes or responsibilities. The book lacks depth and honesty, as Spears glosses over many important aspects of her life, such as her marriages, her children, her mental health, and her music. She does not offer any meaningful insights into her creative process, her artistic influences, or her musical legacy. She also does not address some of the controversial issues that have surrounded her, such as her lip-syncing. her sexualization, and her cultural appropriation. The book is full of clichés, platitudes, and self-praise, as Spears tries to convince the reader that she is a strong, independent, and spiritual woman. She repeats the same phrases over and over, such as "I am a fighter", "I am a survivor", "I am a mother", "I am a woman", etc. She also quotes a lot of song lyrics, Bible verses, and inspirational quotes, without explaining how they relate to her life or what they mean to her. The book is not a memoir, but a propaganda piece, aimed at boosting Spears's image and career, and gaining sympathy and support from her fans. It does not reveal the real woman behind the pop star, but a carefully crafted persona that Spears wants the world to see. It is a disappointing and frustrating read, that does not do justice to Spears's talent and achievements, or to the complexity and challenges of her life. ( )

“I just want to let you know,” he said, “I call the shots. You sit right there in that chair and I’ll tell you what goes on.” I looked at him with a growing sense of horror. “I’m Britney Spears now,” he said.

I’ve always been a fan of Britney. Grew up listening to her song, watching her music videos - so for me, as I’m sure for a lot of her fans, it was heartbreaking seeing her struggling and exploited. I couldn’t even imagine, however, how deeply disturbing and crushing her story actually is.

This book is simple and straightforward, but effective and charming (as Britney herself). I… maybe, “enjoyed it” is not the word that fits 100%, but I definitely couldn’t stop turning the pages.

Very happy that such a strong and creative performer and simply a talented woman got her life back.

PS: I’ve always known that Justin Timberlake is a piece of shit, god, yuck. ( )

Sad Yet Beautiful

As an avid music aficionado, my admiration for Britney Spears' music has always been tempered by a sense of detachment. However, prompted by a colleague's recommendation, I delved into her much-anticipated memoir, an experience I now cherish. Britney's ability to write her life journey on her own terms struck a chord within me, eliciting a profound sense of sympathy for the trials she endured without the support she deserved.

The heartbreaking realization that her family primarily viewed her as a source of financial gain, rather than a beloved family member, cast a somber shadow over her story. Michelle Williams' expert narration of this poignant memoir offered fans a rare glimpse into the sheltered world of the iconic superstar.

Britney bares her soul, recounting her early aspirations to break free from the clutches of poverty and an oppressive home environment, shaped by the presence of a domineering, alcoholic father. Her relentless pursuit of fame became a beacon of hope, a means to transcend her tumultuous beginnings. However, the glow of stardom seemingly masked a darker reality, as her family failed to recognize her profound struggles with loneliness, depression, and persistent sorrow.

The memoir chronicles a pivotal moment in her life, the infamous incident where she shaved her head and lashed out at paparazzi, ultimately leading to a thirteen-year-long conservatorship imposed by her father. Throughout this period, every aspect of her life was meticulously controlled, enabling her father to reap the benefits. The narrative underscores the brutal exploitation she endured and her subsequent fight for autonomy.

While the memoir reveals certain intimate details, the overarching lesson remains the steep price of fame and the importance of speaking out against any wrongdoing witnessed. Yet, as I delved deeper into the narrative, I found myself grappling with unanswered questions, particularly regarding the absence of any mention of a reported mental health diagnosis. This silence prompts further speculation and an unsettling sense that more remains hidden beneath the surface.

Despite these lingering uncertainties, the memoir is a testament to Britney's resilience and fortitude. Written with emotional depth, it stands as a poignant portrayal of her struggles. Michelle Williams' masterful narration through the audiobook adds an extra layer of brilliance, elevating the entire experience. Hats off to Britney for her undeniable contributions to the music industry and her unwavering courage in sharing her truth with the world. She truly embodies the spirit of a superstar.
I encourage readers to approach Ms. Spears' story with a spirit of empathy and understanding. It's a poignant yet strikingly beautiful journey. For those interested in listening to Michelle Williams narrate the heartbreaking tale of Britney Spears, please find the link below.

Surprisingly frank autobiography, detailing the cruel conservatorship Britney was subjected to. A celebrity since childhood, she never had the space to grow up into a grounded adult. Used as a cash-cow by her family, and suffering mental torment. Echoes of Judy Garland & Michael Jackson. A sad & disturbing read. ( )

I’ve never been a big fan of Brittney Spears but no one deserved to be used and abused as she was by her family. It was sad reading about her conservatorship and her family growing up. The book was written in a simple style, a sad story. I’m happy she is free and able to enjoy her life with her two boys. ( )
