Could Britney Spears Pen The Next Great American Novel?

'X Factor' judge's rep tells MTV News 'there are discussions' for book deal.

Britney Spears has certainly accomplished a great deal in her impressive career. She has released seven albums, she’s a judge Fox’s hit show the “X Factor” and she’s is a savvy business woman, releasing nine fragrances since 2004.

And now it appears that there is one more job title Spears can add to her long list of endeavors — author. The pop star is currently in talks with HarperCollins imprint It Books to pen her first novel.

MTV News reached out to Spears’ representative about the new book deal. “To my knowledge there are discussions but nothing confirmed,” her rep said.

Spears does have some writing experience under her belt since she collaborated with her mother back in 2000 for her book, “Britney Spears’ Heart to Heart,” which was not only about Spears’ rise to fame, but the challenges facing mothers and daughters.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, if the deal does get confirmed, the book will most likely be a work of fiction that will incorporate elements of Spears’ real life. The book will take on a similar styling to MTV star Lauren Conrad’s 2009 New York Times bestseller “L.A. Candy,” which was based loosely off Conrad’s life about a young woman who moves to Los Angeles and becomes a star of a reality show.

Yet, Conrad isn’t the only one who found success with this style of writing. In 2011, “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi released “A Shore Thing,” which was about finding love on the boardwalk.

There is no word yet on when Spears’ novel may hit bookshelves, but for now, she’s concentrating on judging the teen group on the “X Factor,” which recently got picked up for a third season.

Last week Spears was asked by “Extra TV” whether she would return next season for the “X Factor” and she responded that it was a “possibility.”
