Discover more from Downtime with Alisha Ramos
Join my new subscriber chat to discuss Britney Spears's memoir! 🗣
There's SO much to discuss...
Hey, happy Sunday! Alisha here. Today, I’m trying out a new addition to my Substack newsletter: the subscriber chat.
This is a conversation space in the Substack app that I set up exclusively for my paid subscribers — kind of like a group chat or live hangout. I’ll post short prompts, thoughts, and updates that come my way, and you can jump into the discussion.
Today, we’re chatting about Britney’s memoir, The Woman In Me. Join the discussion! I’ll be popping in between 9am EST to 8pm EST today, November 12th.
I listened to this book on audio (Michelle Williams deserves whatever the equivalent of an Oscar is for audiobooks for her performance) and sped through it. It’s a relatively short read, full of shocking revelations, plenty of 2000s nostalgia, and heaps of appalling stories that were happening right before our eyes during what appeared to be Britney’s heydays. I felt a mix of emotions as I finished this book. Sad for Britney and all the horror she went through, and pangs of guilt as I, along with many others, dismissed her during her very public meltdowns that were gleefully covered by tabloids and the media.
