Britney Spears confirmed she’s “writing a book” on Instagram on Monday.
Spears said that the experience was “healing and therapeutic” for her. “It’s also hard bringing up past events in my life. I’ve never been able to express openly.”
Spears stated that she intends to write her book using an “intellectual approach.” “‘I’m using the intellectual approach as Justin Timberlake so respectfully did when he apologized to Janet Jackson and me…. He took the opportunity to apologize 20 years later!”
Timberlake had been criticized for how he handled their breakup.

On Instagram, he said,“I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond. I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right”. He added, “I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism.”
“I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed,” Timberlake continued.
People magazine announced in February that Spears had signed a $15 million tell-all book deal.
Spears has signed a deal with Simon & Schuster, according to Page Six. “The deal is one of the biggest of all time, after the Obamas,” a source revealed.
