Strip away worldwide sales of 150 million records and the $60 million fortune and what have you got? — a volatile young woman with a troubled past and a precarious future.

Britney Spears is only 41 years old and has a lot of living left, but you can’t help wondering how this pop culture drama will turn out.

The former Mouseketeer (I did not know that!) is coming out with her autobiography, The Woman in Me, on October 24. The book will be an instant bestseller, far outselling the $15 million advance.

Signatures are very revealing.

The thrice-married singer tells her story from a childhood of big dreams to her breakup with singer Justin Timberlake and the sordid battle with her family over her conservatorship.

For 13 years her father James Spears controlled her life and her finances. Britney finally took the matter to court and engaged in a long legal fight to determine if she was ‘mentally sound’ to control her $60 million estate.

She was only 15 when her first two studio albums, Baby One More Time and Oops! I Did It Again became the best-selling albums of all time and Britney the best-selling teenage artist of all time.


Her troubles with legal authorities began when she was photographed driving with her infant son on her lap instead of in a car seat, sounding the alarm for child advocates.

The incident was followed by drug addiction, an episode where she shaved her ahead, a spell in a psychiatric hospital, divorce and loss of custody of her two children to her second husband, rapper K-Fed. All of which led a L.A. court to place her under the conservatorship of her father and her attorney, giving them complete control of her assets.


It all came to a head in 2021. After a bitter, highly-publicized trial Britney got her life back. Fans cheered and danced outside the L.A. courthouse when they heard the news.

And now they will buy her book and the beat will go on and the ‘Princess of Pop’ will continue to walk a tightrope of unpredictability.
