The singer defended her memoir on Twitter and chastised the media for their contentious treatment of it. Spears made it clear that her intention behind writing her memoir was 'not to offend anyone by any means,' per The Things. The pop singer declared that she wanted a 'clean slate' in the public eye and that she has 'moved on' from her difficult past.
“I am here to establish it that way for the rest of my entire life!!!” Spears wrote. “Either way that is the last of it and s–t happens,” she said. The pop icon also pointed out that writing the biography was beneficial for her because it gave her 'closure on all things for a better future,' even if she is aware that 'some' people may be 'offended' by her revelations.
“Hopefully I can enlighten people who feel particularly alone in most cases or hurt or misunderstood!!!” the Toxic singer continued. “Again, my motive for this book was not to harp on my past experiences which is what the press is doing and it’s dumb and silly!!! I have moved on since then!!!”
Additionally, Spears' fans also affirmed her experiences, sharing that they are not going to criticize her for talking about her past. “I think you are phenomenal and I can’t wait to read your book. However, I will add, you are not responsible for how other people view your book so please don’t apologize,” one person tweeted. “Keep doing you. Know you’re loved. And if ppl get offended that’s their problem.”
Powerful! Your book will help others to heal, deal with closures and put energy into today and the future.— Beth Marie (@BethMarie_007) October 22, 2023
Thank you for your bravery to share pain, fear, joy and understanding life is hard but we must move on. God Bless you Britney! Much love!
One person also stated, “Brit Brit, the world objectified, sexualized and silenced you for YEARS, it’s only fair you tell YOUR side of the story, we are here, we’ll ALWAYS have your back.” Another user added, “I believe you needed this book to deal with the past! Not too many people know about your private life, so it definitely will be interesting to read! People do get offended, but is not your problem…!”
The Woman in Me delves deeply into Spears' early years, ascent to fame, and time spent living under a conservatorship for ten years, which ended in 2021. “I became a robot. But not just a robot — a sort of child robot. I had been so infantilized that I was losing pieces of what made me feel like myself,” Britney says of the conservatorship in her memoir. “The conservatorship stripped me of my womanhood, made me into a child. I became more of an entity than a person onstage. I had always felt music in my bones and my blood; they stole that from me.”
