Everyone wants to write a book. On one hand, it is annoying because everyone is not an author. On the other hand, it provides for good blog material, manuscript editing, and entertainment. Especially the memoirs from celebrities.
American Idol contestant, singer, Oscar award winning actress, and now Weight Watchers spokesperson Jennifer Hudson is writing a weight loss memoir. I don't expect her to share feelings of her family's tragic deaths, or details of her marriage to pro wrestler David "Punk" Otunga. But of all things to write about, she chooses to share inspirational weight loss and exercise tips. Okay, J Hud.
Flavor Flav's memoir, The Icon, was released May 11. He reveals that he spent $5.7 million on drugs in six years. That equals $2,600 spent on drugs daily! He also reveals that he lost his virginity at age six to a girl of the same age. Just from watching his VH1 reality shows, I can tell his memoir will be entertaining. Has anyone tried his chicken by the way?
It's certainly not too late for singer-songwriter-pianist Carole King to release her own memoir. A Natural Woman will be published by Grand Central Publishing in April 2012. It will cover her growing up in Brooklyn, rise to the top of pop charts, and her current life as an environmental and political activist. She's won four Grammy Awards, sold more than 10 million copies of the Tapestry album, and was also inducted to the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Carole King is one of Chickadee's all-time faves, so this is definitely being added to the TBR pile.
