Britney Spears Refused to Appear for Any Media Interaction to Promote Her "Traumatic" Memoir
Britney Spears may be ready to share her story, but she has no intention to relive all the "traumatic" incidents spoken about in her upcoming memoir, The Woman in Me. Consequently, the 'Princess of Pop' will refrain from press interviews or media interaction to promote her book, insisting that reading it aloud is painful enough.
October 24, 2023, is the release date of the Toxic singer's bombshell memoir. The 41-year-old will take her fans along with her controversial life but won't entertain any sit-downs. There's a lot of buzz around the revelations in her book, including her disturbed life under her father's 13-year-long conservatorship.
The Mind Your Business singer recently interacted with an outlet, but the medium of exchange was an email. Although the court gave her respite by terminating the conservatorship in November 2021, Spears admitted she hasn't adapted to what it feels like to be free. "Learning this new freedom, I'll admit, is challenging at times," reported PEOPLE.

Her newfound privilege to make her own decisions was followed by another setback in her personal life: her divorce from ex-husband Sam Asghari, along with her convoluted relationships with her immediate family, mother, father, or sister, Jamie Lynn.
Previously, it was reported that she had been invited to appear on 60 Minutes or in an exclusive interview with Oprah. However, those reports were ruled out by TMZ. She consciously decided not to take on any live interaction where reporters would throw personal questions at her.
In her interview with PEOPLE, she stated lately, she has been enjoying little moments in life and not focused on achieving milestones. "I'm playing with my dogs ... [or] watching episodes of Friends and belly laughing. I love, love to travel and explore," Spears said she's being in the moment.
"I am a simple girl," she proclaimed. However, her musical career has been plagued with several controversies. Some of the excerpts from her book revealed shocking revelations about her past relationships with Justin Timberlake. She alleged that when she was 19, she aborted a child.
She recalled in her book, "He 'Timberlake] said we weren't ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young." The Oops...! I Did It Again singer admitted that if it was her will, she'd have kept the baby alive. "I don't know if that was the right decision; If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it."
In another excerpt, she accused her ex-sweetheart, Timberlake, of cheating on her with another "celebrity" she refused to name. On the contrary, she also mentioned in her memoir that she cheated on Timberlake with choreographer Wade Robson. "We were out one night, and we went to a Spanish bar. We danced and danced. I made out with him that night." However, she also claimed her loyalty to Timberlake for years with that one exception, reported The Sun.
