The Hollywood Reporter is reporting today that Britney Spears is close to signing a book deal with plans to write a novel, likely a fictionalized version of her own life, and they report it in the most sarcastic way possible.
Indeed, Spears is the latest in a growing cadre of headline-grabbers who dabble in books. They include the Kardashians and Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. No word yet on when a Spears book may be released, but with the singer appearing on a network TV show (and being paid handsomely for it -- in the vicinity of $15 million) and having sold nearly 100 million albums worldwide in her career, the advance is likely to be substantial.
It's also likely that the people running this company had a meeting one day where they said, "hey let's run this fucking place right into the ground. By giving book deals to Snooki and Khloe Kardashian. My other idea was to put some glasses and a tie on a turtle and let him run the place."
