Katy Perry is getting $2 million dollars for her autobiography. Daaaaaamn. Girl, you better WRITE this. At least write more than half. Don’t let a ghostwriter do the whole thing. Please.
Huffington Post confirms:
The “Fireworks” singer reportedly inked a $2 million book deal for an autobiography — a hot ticket given her widely publicized divorce from comedian Russell Brand.
The news comes on the heels of Brand’s own book deal. He will reportedly address the divorce in memoir, a follow up to “My Booky Wook.”
Perry has reportedly agreed to tackle the subject head on, but it will hardly be the first time she’s publicly discussed the breakup. Katy Perry: Part of Me, the singer’s 3-D concert movie, featured a one-sided account of the divorce that framed Brand as the one who wasn’t willing to put in the time and travel required to keep the marriage strong.
It’s also rumored that Perry will address her relationship with John Mayer in the book.
Ugh, no John Mayer chapter please. I think her life is interesting enough without John Mayer. John Mayer adds nothing to anything. John Mayer is like trying to make a cocktail with 2 different brands of water. You’re not going to get anything out of that.
ANYWAY, congrats Ms. Perry and please don’t let us down!
EDIT: OH DAMN, THIS MAY NOT HAPPEN. NEWS JUST BROKE THAT HER REP IS SAYING THIS IS ALL FALSE.
A spokesperson for Perry has now told The Huffington Post that there will be no autobiography forthcoming. (via Digital Spy.)
“No book, no deal,” Perry’s representative insisted.
