Britney Spears May Write Novel Loosely Based on Her Life

D Dipasupil/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- So much has been written about Britney Spears, that it's about time the tables were turned.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Britney is in "discussions" to write a novel partly based on her own life.  

Britney's spokesperson confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that Britney's talking with It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins, about the project, which would "incorporate fictionalized versions of her own experiences."  The publication says the project would be similar to L.A. Candy, a novel written by reality star Lauren Conrad, about a girl who moves to L.A. and becomes a reality star.

The Hollywood Reporter predicts that Britney will likely receive a "substantial" advance for the book, based on her general fame and her current high profile as a judge on The X Factor.

50 Cent Writing Novel About Bullying

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- 50 Cent will address the issue of bullying in a new book he's writing. The young adult novel Playground will focus on a 13-year-old bully who "finds redemption as he faces what he's done," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Fiddy said in a statement, "I drew on events from my own childhood and adolescence, but was excited to see the story take on its own life. This book would have been very helpful for me growing up and now that I have a teenage son, it is my goal that this will have a positive influence on all teenagers."

Playground will be published by Razorbill and is due out next January. 50 Cent previously co-wrote the autobiography From Pieces to Weight and the self-help book The 50th Law.
