Paris says she is ‘so proud’ of Britney

Emphasizing how she is “so proud” of Spears “for telling her story,” Hilton said, “I know how hard it can be doing a memoir because you have to really dive in and think about so many moments in your life that I’m sure you don’t even want to think about.”

She continued, “But it is truly such a healing experience, and writing my book, has changed my life in so many ways. So I’m really hoping that she feels the same way with this.” Hilton added, “I am just proud of what a strong woman she is.”

Britney will not be reading her audiobook

Britney’s much-anticipated memoir will not have her voice in the audiobook. In a statement released by the ‘Toxic’ singer, she expressed the reasons behind it. “This book has been a labor of love and all the emotions that come with it. Reliving everything has been exciting, heart-wrenching, and emotional, to say the least. For those reasons, I will only be reading a small part of my audiobook,” she stated. She’ll only read the introduction, and the rest of the book will be narrated by actress Michelle Williams.

‘I have no doubt her memoir will have an impact’

Jennifer Bergstrom, Senior Vice President and Publisher of Gallery Books, shared exclusive insights with People regarding Britney’s memoir. “Britney’s compelling testimony in open court shook the world, changed laws, and showed her inspiring strength and bravery,” she said. “I have no doubt her memoir will have a similar impact — and will be the publishing event of the year. We couldn’t be more proud to help her share her story at last.”

Promising to unveil “for the first time her incredible journey and strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop music history,” as stated in a press release from Gallery Books, the memoir of the “Toxic” singer “illuminates the enduring power of music and love — and the significance of a woman sharing her own story, on her own terms.” The book is “a brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope,” the press release added.
