Britney Spears sets release date for memoir 'The Woman in Me'

Pop icon Britney Spears has announced the release date for her long-awaited memoir, titled ‘The Woman in Me.’ 

Spears, known for her chart-topping hits and highly publicized personal struggles, revealed the news on her book’s website.

"‘The Woman in Me’ is a brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope," the announcement reads

The website also reveals the memoir’s release date of Oct. 24, 2023. You can pre-order the book now at many stores including Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

"‘The Woman in Me’ reveals for the first time her incredible journey – and the strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop music history," the announcement continues, adding, "Written with remarkable candor and humor, Spears’s groundbreaking book illuminates the enduring power of music and love – and the importance of a woman telling her own story, on her own terms, at last." 

Last year, PEOPLE confirmed that the 41-year-old singer had agreed to a $15 million book deal to produce a tell-all memoir. Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, acquired the 288-page book. 

"The deal is one of the biggest of all time, behind the Obamas," a publishing insider told Page Six last year.

Wembanyama said a person — he later was told it was Spears — grabbed him from behind.
