Being Britney: Pieces of a Modern Icon
“Bickerdike is on a mission to free Britney by restoring her reputation as a cultural icon…. [An] astute reckoning with modern celebrity.” —The Times
“A wild read.” —The Guardian
Part biography, part social history, Being Britney pieces together a collage of stories, interviews, legends, and fan experiences to construct a definitive portrait of one of the biggest stars in recent history.
In her unique narrative, acclaimed music author Jennifer Otter Bickerdike provides a sympathetic yet objective reexamination of Britney’s trajectory from girl next door to woman trapped by fame. Being Britney is the compelling account of a talented, troubled, and much-discussed modern icon whose life, work, and individual significance will be recognized for many decades to come.
“Britney is blessed to have such a talented writer and perceptive mind broaching the complexities of her story thus far.” —Shirley Manson, Garbage
