Word has it that Britney Spears has gotten herself a literary agent and is about to sign one of the "most lucrative book deals in showbiz history."

The publishing deal would reportedly give her £10 million to write between three and five books over the next 10 years, which of course means that she has to find a ghost writer to listen to her talk and then come up with between three and five books in the course of a decade. The books will focus not only on how she became famous, but when she went off the rails. The best part? She's (supposedly) faithfully kept diaries through all of it. Puh-lease publishing world, just print those as is. Pretty please? [Mirror]
