    And yet she's done more in her 15 years than my 20 :p

    Well, it's obviously written for 12 year olds.

    " And then i was like, totally, and she said no way. I couldnt believe jeff broke up with me! I was in love with him with all my heart since we locked eyes 15 minutes ago! Why is my life so hard? Oh my achy breaky heart"

    Does it really matter when she writes it? She's gonna get paid MILLIONS to write whatever BS related to her life so that 10-15 year old kids everywhere will buy and treat it like gospel. If it works out for her and the publisher, they'll make a sequel of that book in a few years and make a movie.

    If she's popular now, she should write it now, as in five or ten years, she'll be unknown to 100% of the planet's population (instead of the 95% or so now). :rolleyes:

    I for one have never heard of her.

    So it will basically be a MySpace page in book form. I wish she would go back into whatever hole she crawled out of.

    She won't be unknown to everybody. There'll be a few people that'll know her from the B-grade porn she'll invariably end up in.

    So by reading her "inspiring story" I take it we'll gain insight into how a poor penniless daughter of a multi-millionaire pop star miraculously captures the attention of the entertainment industry using of course only her raw incredible talent and against all odds with only the backing of a major multinational's marketing budget becomes successful?

    Not exactly Nelson Mandela is it?

    Must be nice to hand a publisher your diary and make money.

    Anyone who thinks a single word of this 'book' was ever in the same room as her is sadly deluded.

    Get real. Of course it's a marketing manoeuvre. And I have to say I find it hard to object to anything that encourages children to read, even if it's mindless sub-Potter pap.

    wooah, slow down there with the hate man!! Okay, I'm pretty sure the book is gonna be one looong piece of marketing-department-engineered froth (or actually not so long since it's for kids, and not the kind of kids who look forward to reading Order of the Phoenix-sized books, and the bigger the better), but that's no reason to be quite so nasty is it? I mean, the prebuscent kids (just girls actually, very much doubt boys are into that stuff), who are going to read that, I got news for you, they're pretty frothy creatures generally. And those that aren't. well, they put down the likes of Miley (sp?) Cyrus using much the same words and stuff as you are, which is hardly flattering to you as I think you're a bit older than that :eek: Trying to make oneself look superior by putting 'pop cultcha' down is kinda lame past age 18 :p

    (apologies if you're younger than eighteen though lol)

    Yes. This tome might even contain some three-syllable words.

    if it's like other "grown-up" memoirs, how many of her fans will actually get it, and then trudge through it?

    i hope they make a mary kate and ashley olson/kids/teens version, otherwise it won't sell

    It might have juicy details, like her first sexual adventure was with a goat or something good like that.

    OK, but I guarantee her cousin Adriana Auchtermuchty will not be making an appearance.

    no, only made more money. And I get the funny feeling this book won't explicitly describe how to make a similarly large chunk of cash. Therefore: not interested.

    Queso already listed how to do it.

    Step 1: Famous and rich parent
    Step 2: Disneys marketing department working in full force to help you and themselves (MTV will work to)
    Step 3: $$$
