Britney's mom's memoir comes out next week! Does anyone care?
Lynne Spears writes (with Lorilee Craker) about both her famous daughters -- Britney and famous pregnant teen Jamie Lynn -- in Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World (Thomas Nelson, $24.99).
According to the Associated Press, which got its hands on an advance copy of the book, Lynne Spears "rejects the image that she pushed Britney into show business, and writes that the singer was always focused on achievement and would constantly practice to the music of Madonna, Whitney Houston and others." (If I had a dime for every little girl who sang along with their favorite pop stars...)
Lynne Spears also praises Kevin Federline (Britney's ex-husband) as a "caring daddy" and Britney as "an amazing mother" -- but only when at her best.
This book will likely sit on the best seller list for a week or two, which is a shame because it sounds like nothing more than a mother cashing in on her dysfunctional daughters' successes and failures. Apples don't fall far from the tree, Ms. Spears.
