X Factor judge, Britney Spears, has plans to “write” a book. She’s currently negotiating a deal, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
That’s right, Britney Spears is close to signing a book deal, The Hollywood Reporter has learned, with plans to write a novel.
Her rep confirms that It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins, which has released many popular musician memoirs (among them: autobiographies by Sammy Hagar, The Game, Slash and Motley Crue), is having “discussions” with the singer. (A rep for It would not confirm.)
A source tells THR Spears would pen a roman a clef for the publisher. The story would incorporate fictionalized versions of her own experiences, much like Lauren Conrad’s 2009 New York Times bestseller L.A. Candy, which was about a girl who moves to Los Angeles and becomes the star of a reality show. Conrad, who starred in The Hills, has written two more novels since.
Jersey Shore’s Snooki “wrote” a book too. I wonder who Brit Brit will hire to be her ghost writer? A roman a clef is like writing a memoir, but not really. Because, as a work of “fiction”, parts of the story are true, but it’s up to the reader to guess which.
