Britney Spears’ highly anticipated tell-all memoir, ‘The Woman In Me,’ doesn’t come out until next week, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming the number-one best-seller on Amazon.

Pop superstar Britney Spears releases her much-anticipated new memoir next week, but the book is already number one on Amazon’s Best Seller list. Her publicity press tour is gradually rolling out excerpts from the book to People, providing fans with a never-before-seen peek into her side of the story. “I’ll have a good book one day,” says Spears in a teaser posted to her Instagram. “A good, mysterious book.”

In one excerpt, Spears describes how, beginning when she was in eighth grade, she and her mother would regularly make the two-hour drive from their home in Kentwood to Biloxi, Mississippi, “and while we were there, we would drink daiquiris. We called our cocktails ‘toddies.’”

The topic from the book most on fans’ minds is the abortion Britney says she had after she became pregnant with Justin Timberlake’s baby when the pair were still together: “It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy,” says Spears. “I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated.”

Spears’ upcoming book has her switching gears on her social media presence. Her Instagram, normally filled with videos of the artist dancing — most recently and infamously including a pair of knives — now contains plenty of ads for her memoir as she shifts into book tour mode.

Celebrity memoirs like Spears’ filled with the promise of juicy tidbits can do exceedingly well when it comes to sales — Prince Harry’s memoir, “Spare,” released earlier this year, is still the top selling book in 2023, according to NPD BookScan.
